Co-occurring increased phosphatase activity and labile P depletion in the rhizosphere of Lupinus angustifolius assessed with a novel, combined 2D-imaging approach
Innovative non-destructive 2D imaging methods such as zymography and diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) have been developed recently to assess the distribution of phosphatase activity and labile solutes at the root-soil ...
Environmental parameters affecting the concentration of iodine in New Zealand pasture
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America & Soil Science of America, 2019-08-21)
Iodine (I) is an essential trace element commonly deficient in agricultural systems. Whereas there is much information on I in food crops, there is a lacuna of knowledge on the environmental factors that affect pasture I ...
Effects of lime and organic amendments derived from varied source materials on cadmium uptake by potato
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, Inc., 2017-07)
Repeated applications of Cd-rich phosphate fertilizers have resulted in elevated concentrations of this toxic element in some New Zealand soils. Exceedance of the food safety standard for Cd (0.1 mg kg⁻¹ fresh weight) has ...
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 ...
