Changes in soil aggregate, carbon, and nitrogen storages following the conversion of cropland to alfalfa forage land in the marginal oasis of northwest China.

Abstract

Maintenance of soil organic carbon (SOC) is important for sustainable use of soil resources due to the multiple effects of SOC on soil nutrient status and soil structural stability. The objective of this study was to identify the changes in soil aggregate distribution and stability, SOC, and nitrogen (N) concentrations after cropland was converted to… (More)
