Soil supply of nitrogen is the most intensively studied of all nutrient cycles. Prior to the widespread use of fertilizers, economically viable agriculture was dependent solely on the soils ability to supply N. From 1945 ...
Swine manure as a source of plant nutrients
Availability of soil nitrogen released from pea and lentil residue to subsequent cereal crops under reduced tillage
The release of N from legume crop residues in the field can potentially be an important nutrient source for succeeding cereal crops, particularly in soils which are N deficient. Field studies were conducted in 1996 on two ...
