Seasonal dynamics of N-mineralization and the size of the viable community of nitrifying bacteria were studied for a forest site and an adjoining cropland site. The forest site was dominated by Boswellia serrata and Acacia catechu in the tree layer, and by Nyctanthes arbortristis and Zizyphus glaberrima in the shrub layer. Crop sequence on the cropland site was Oryza sativa/Lens culinaris. The soil type in both the sites was ultisol (USDA). The cropland soil had significantly higher bulk… CONTINUE READING
