Scope and Strategies for Regulation of Nitrification in Agricultural Systems—Challenges and Opportunities
Nitrification, a microbial process, is a key component and integral part of the nitrogen (N) cycle. Soil N is in a constant state of flux, moving and changing chemical forms. During nitrification, aExpand

Factors Affecting Nitrification in Soils
Abstract Nitrification in soil converts relatively immobile ammonium‐nitrogen (N) to highly mobile nitrate‐N (via nitrite), and this has implications for N‐use efficiency by agricultural systems asExpand

Organic matter accumulation in submerged soils
Abstract The decomposition and accumulation of organic materials in submerged (anaerobic) soils and sediments differ considerably from those in their aerobic counterparts. This is caused by the lackExpand

Nitrification in some tropical soils
SummaryNitrification of soil N in 8 mineral and 2 histosols having a wide range in pH (3.4 to 8.6), organic C (1.22 to 22.70%) and total N (0.09 to 1.20%) was studied by measuring nitrate fromationExpand

Iron Toxicity in Wetland Rice and the Role of Other Nutrients
Abstract Iron (Fe) toxicity is a widespread nutrient disorder of wetland rice grown on acid sulfate soils, Ultisols, and sandy soils with a low cation exchange capacity, moderate to high acidity, andExpand

Phytoremediation of Sodic and Saline‐Sodic Soils
Sodicity-induced soil degradation is a major environmental constraint with severe negative impacts on agricultural productivity and sustainability in arid and semiarid regions. As an importantExpand

Mechanisms for iron toxicity tolerance in lowland rice
Abstract Iron toxicity is a widespread nutrient disorder of lowland rice in West Africa. Soluble iron present in the soil solution under waterlogged conditions is absorbed by roots and accumulates inExpand

Effect of Genotypes and Environments on Oil Content and Oil Quality Parameters and Their Correlation in Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.)
Abstract The quality of edible oils is now receiving increasing consideration from consumers and processors. The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of environments on oil contentExpand

The role of tolerant genotypes and plant nutrients in the management of iron toxicity in lowland rice
Iron toxicity is a nutrient disorder associated with high concentrations of iron in soil solutions. Deficiencies of other nutrients, such as P, K, Ca, Mg and Zn, have been implicated in itsExpand

Suppression of soil nitrification by plants.
Nitrification, the biological oxidation of ammonium to nitrate, weakens the soil's ability to retain N and facilitates N-losses from production agriculture through nitrate-leaching andExpand
