Effect of Quinhydrone on Soil Nitrification


Lees and Quastel1 showed that if soils of temperate regions were submitted to an initial treatment with 4 × 10−3 M quinhydrone and afterwards rinsed with water to remove excess quinhydrone, they failed thereafter to nitrify percolated ammonium salts at the normal rate. It has since been found (Lees, unpublished results) that nitrification in these soils was… (More)
