The following report summarises the results of a study conducted by University of Málaga, Spain in which the effects of five types of soil amendments on the afforestation success (e.g. plant growth and survival rate) of a Mediterranean semi-arid area were assessed. The amendments tested were straw mulch, mulch containing chipped branches of Aleppo pine, sheep manure compost, sewage sludge from a wastewater treatment plant and TerraCottem Universal. This research confirms the positive effect of the TerraCottem soil conditioning technology on plant growth.
