Influence of organic and mineral amendments on microbial soil properties and processes
Microbial diversity in soils is considered important for maintaining sustainability of agricultural production systems. However, the links between microbial diversity and ecosystem processes are not well understood. This ...
Accounting for the utilization of a N₂O mitigation tool in the IPCC inventory methodology for agricultural soils
(Springer Netherlands, 2007)
In this study we review recent studies where dicyandiamide was used as a nitrification inhibitor to reduce both N₂O emissions from urine patches and nitrate leaching from pasture systems, and which led to the development ...
Effects of past and current crop management on soil microbial biomass and activity
(Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2007-06)
Because soil biota is influenced by a number of factors, including land use and management techniques, changing management practices could have significant effects on the soil microbial properties and processes. An experiment ...
Small-scale spatial variability of selected soil biological properties
A strategy for sampling soil from intact monolith lysimeters was established based on measurements of spatial heterogeneity within the lysimeter area. This was part of an ongoing study to determine relationships between ...
Increasing phosphate rock availability using a lupin green manure crop
(Lincoln University, 2004)
Legumes have been shown to increase the dissolution and utilisation of phosphate rock (PR) phosphorus (P) compared with non-legumes because of their acidifying effect on the rhizosphere. A promising agronomic approach for ...
