Denitrification and fermentation in plant-residue-amended soil

  title={Denitrification and fermentation in plant-residue-amended soil},
  author={John Wayne Paul and Eric G. Beauchamp},
  journal={Biology and Fertility of Soils},
Nitrous oxide production (denitrification) during anaerobic incubation of ground-alfalfa-, red-clover-, wheat-straw-, and cornstover-amended soil was positively related to the initial water-soluble C content of the residue- amended soil. The water-soluble C concentration decreased in all treatments during the first 2 days, then increased in the alfalfa-, red-clover-, and wheat-straw-amended soil until the end of the experiment at 15 days. An accumulation of acetate, propionate, and butyrate was… CONTINUE READING
