To determine if the soil microbial biomass in a 60 year fallow soil of the Highfield Ley-Arable Experiment at Rothamsted Research, UK, had maintained its ability to mineralise soil organic matter and added substrates compared to biomasses in a grassland and arable soil of the same experiment. Three soils of the same type: a 60 y permanent fallow, arable and grassland, were incubated (25°C, 40% WHC) with and without 1. a labile substrate (yeast extract, C/N ratio 3.6) or 2. more resistant… CONTINUE READING
