In 1992, we began a ten-year research program investigating the effects of topically-applied biosolids at a Chihuahuan desert research site. We have studied the effects of biosolids on soil properties, erosion, runoff and infiltration; soil water quality; forage production and forage quality; plant ecophysiological responses; soil nutrient cycling; and livestock performance. In this article, we highlight some of our results from these studies.
