Abstract
The objectives and approach of this research project were: (1) to evaluate the properties of coal mine soil, (2) to study the germination of selected plant species in coal mine soil in the greenhouse, (3) to study the growth of selected plant species in coal mine soil on the Black Mesa Coal Mine, and (4) to study the livestock feed value of forage from selected plant species grown in coal mine soil. The nitrogen and potassium contents were higher in coal mine soil than they were in unmined soil; however, coal mine soil contained less phosphorus than did unmined soil. Average germination percentages for seven plant species grown in coal mine soil in the greenhouse were similar to germination percentages for the same species grown in Gila foam soil. The general livestock feed value of forage from seven plant species grown in coal mine soil was similar to the feed value of forage from the same species grown in unmined soil.
