AimsThe ability to suppress soil nitrification through the release of nitrification inhibitors from plant roots is termed ‘biological nitrification inhibition’ (BNI). Here, we aimed at the quantification and characterization of the BNI function in sorghum that includes inhibitor production, their chemical identity, functionality and factors regulating their release.MethodsSorghum was grown in solution culture and root exudate was collected using aerated NH4Cl solutions. A bioluminescence assay… CONTINUE READING
