Effect of long-term application of manure and mineral fertilizers on nitrogen mineralization and microbial biomass in paddy soil during rice growth stages
Net N mineralization rate (NMR), net N consumption rate (NCR), microbial biomass carbon (MBC) and nitrogen (MBN), potentially mineralizable N (PMN) and mineral N (N-NH 4 + and N-NO + and N-NO + 3 - )Expand
Wood ash application increases pH but does not harm the soil mesofauna.
It is concluded that short-term chronic effects of wood ash differ among different soil types, and osmotic stress is the likely cause of effects while high pH and heavy metals is of minor importance. Expand
Effect of ash application on the decomposer food web and N mineralization in a Norway spruce plantation.
The results suggest that as the soil decomposer food web is resilient to ash application, this is a viable option for sustainable management of biofuel plantations. Expand
