Irrigation effects on soil organic carbon under a ryegrass-white clover pasture on a Lismore stony silt loam soil : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2020)
Long-term summer irrigation of temperate managed pastures has been reported to either increase or decrease soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks when compared with dryland systems. Understanding the short-term effects of ...
Soil biodiversity and biogeochemical function in managed ecosystems
A complex combination of environmental, biological, chemical, and physical properties and processes determine soil biodiversity and its relationship to biogeochemical functions and ecosystem services. Vegetation, land-use, ...
Increased soil nitrogen supply enhances root-derived available soil carbon leading to reduced potential nitrification activity
Nitrogen (N) immobilisation by heterotrophic microorganisms is critical for reducing N losses from soils and ensuring a long-term supply of N to plants in grassland ecosystems. The supply of carbon (C) available to soil ...
Permanent wilting point plays an important role in simulating winter wheat growth under water deﬁcit conditions
(Elsevier B.V., 2020-02-28)
Soil parameters related to soil water holding capacity could play an important role in simulating winter wheat growth under severe soil water stress, which could heavily influence the simulated soil water contents, and ...
Reduced root water uptake of summer maize grown in water-repellent soils simulated by HYDRUS-1D
Soil water repellency (SWR) is an ubiquitous soil property, that has major effects on surface and subsurface water flow, soil erosion, and therefore also affects plant growth and development. Soil water repellency has been ...
