1. Check treatment (clean soil not aff ected by oil well operations),
soil taken in the vicinity of the Števkovica
– Beničanci (oil-hole Števkovica-4) pipeline rupture
location (Muvrin and Benčić, 1992; Kisić et al., 2003;
Kisić et al., 2005),
2. Completely contaminated soil – soil taken from the
contaminated soil disposal site at the Števkovica 4
central landfi ll,
3. 1/2 clean soil + 1/2 contaminated soil,
4. 2/3 clean soil + 1/3 contaminated soil,
5. 3/4 clean soil + 1/4 contaminated soil,
6. Soil delivered to the pipeline rupture location,
7. 2/3 clean soil + 1/3 crude “fresh” oil,
8. 3/4 clean soil + 1/4 crude “fresh” oil.
The experiment was set up in pots with 4 repetitions,
and the experimental area (pot) is 0.05 m2. During crops
growth usual agrotechnical measures (chemical treatment
and mineral fertilization) were applied. Fundamental
chemical analyses of the soil (soil reaction, organic matter
content, available phosphorus and potassium, and mineral
or organic oil content) were made twice a year: prior to
setting up the experiment and aft er the “harvest”.
The main purpose of the research is to identify possibility
for growing crops in soils contaminated by hydrocarbons
(Van-Camp et al., 2004; ISO 10381, 2005), and the
eff ect the said contamination might have on crop yield by
1. The influence of varying quantity of contaminated soil
on the crop emergence time, establishment and yield
2. Changes in chemical composition of the soil: soil reaction,
plant available phosphorus and potassium, and
organic matter content.
