Seasonal variation in the soil microbial community in wheat-growing soil and influence of C, N, and P inputs
It has long been know that N and P fertilization increases plant growth and yield, but the impact of fertilization on soil microorganisms has rarely been considered. Long-term plots (36-year old) under fallow-wheat-wheat ...
Factors limiting soil microbial growth and activity in wheat-based cropping systems
Several soil biochemical processes related to soil fertility are microbially mediated. We know very well the factors limiting crop production but know little of the factors limiting the soil microbial community. The goal ...
The effect of long-term application of P fertilizer on soil grown forage plants
Phosphorus (P) fertilization does not always increase crop yields but the repeated use of P may modify the biological properties of soils. The objective of the present study, therefore, was to investigate the effect of ...
