PurposeVegetables are major economic crops in China. Their cultivation usually involves high fertilizer application rates leading to significant losses of N and P to the wider environment, resulting in water contamination and low nutrient use efficiency. Hence, it is a matter of urgency to understand the mechanisms and factors that affect N and P losses in vegetable production systems in order to develop optimum fertilization regimes.Materials and methodsDifferent fertilization regimes were…

Nitrogen and phosphorus losses by surface runoff and soil microbial communities in a paddy field with different irrigation and fertilization managements
It is demonstrated that T2 might be an effective approach to ameliorate soil chemical properties, regulate microbial community structure, increase AEN and consequently reduce N losses as well as maintaining rice yields in the present study.
N and P runoff losses in China's vegetable production systems: Loss characteristics, impact, and management practices.
Vegetable production systems involve the use of high rates of fertilizer application, leading to significant losses of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) to the environment, resulting in water body
Soil microbial community composition in a paddy field with different fertilization managements.
Soil total potassium (TK) concentration was the most important factor driving the variation in bacterial community structure under different fertilization regimes, while the major factors shaping fungal community structure were soil TN and NO3--N (nitrate N).
Coupled Effects of Reduced Chemical Fertilization and Biochar Supplementation on Availability and Transformations of Nitrogen and Phosphorus in Vegetable Farmland Soil: An In Situ Study in Southern China
Reduced fertilization technology is an eco-friendly strategy to minimize nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) surpluses and losses in vegetable production. However, little is known about the performance
Distribution and determinants of organic carbon and available nutrients in tropical paddy soils revealed by high–resolution sampling
Abstract Rice is one of the most important crops in China; however, the loss of paddy area and imbalanced soil nutrient composition threaten food security in China owing to the increasing food
Enhanced nitrogen imbalances in agroecosystems driven by changing cropping systems in a coastal area of eastern China: from field to watershed scale.
Findings suggest that increased vegetable cultivation contributed to the increased risk of N pollution in agricultural production and there should be a focus on the management of cropping systems to control N loss from agricultural lands.
Effects of microbial inoculants on phosphorus and potassium availability, bacterial community composition, and chili pepper growth in a calcareous soil: a greenhouse study
The application of MI improved the bioavailability of P and K and plant growth and changed the soil bacterial community structure associated closely with soil properties of available P, K, and pH in soil.
Nitrogen pollution and sources in an aquatic system at an agricultural coastal area of Eastern China based on a dual-isotope approach
This study suggests that the management of crop productions and reasonable manure fertilizer application should be implemented to protect the quality of aquatic systems in the JZB area.
Variation of dissolved nutrient exports by surface runoff from sugarcane watershed is controlled by fertilizer application and ground cover
Abstract Overuse of chemical fertilizer due to intensive agriculture results in excess dissolved nutrient exports by runoff from watershed, causing eutrophication of water bodies. But how the time of
Application of phosphate-containing materials affects bioavailability of rare earth elements and bacterial community in soils
The exploitation and smelting of rare earths can cause serious pollution to the farmland around the mining area. The rare earth elements (REEs) are absorbed by crops and enter the human body through


Nitrogen and phosphorus leaching losses from paddy fields with different water and nitrogen managements
While many water-saving rice production techniques have been adopted in China, the environmental effects of these techniques require further investigation. This study aims to assess nitrogen (N) and
Environmental impact and economic benefits of site-specific nutrient management (SSNM) in irrigated rice systems
Abstract Site-specific nutrient management (SSNM) provides a field-specific approach for dynamically applying nutrients to rice as and when needed. This approach advocates optimal use of indigenous
Long-term effect of chemical fertilizer, straw, and manure on soil chemical and biological properties in northwest China
Abstract A field experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of long-term (30-year) fertilizer and organic manure treatments on grain yield, soil chemical properties and some microbiological
Surface runoff and nitrogen (N) loss in a bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens) forest under different fertilization regimes
Nitrogen (N) losses from agricultural fields have been extensively studied. In contrast, surface runoff and N losses have rarely been considered for bamboo forests that are widespread in regions such
Soil Fertility and Indigenous Nutrient Supply in Irrigated Rice Domains of Asia
Grain yields in nutrient omission plots were strongly correlated with each other and also with the yield in the fertilized farmers' fields, which caused large variability of IS among irrigated rice domains, years, growing seasons, and fields within a domain.
Responses of Bacterial Communities in Arable Soils in a Rice-Wheat Cropping System to Different Fertilizer Regimes and Sampling Times
Both fertilizer treatment and seasonal changes affect soil properties, microbial biomass and bacterial community structure, and the application of NPK plus manure organic-inorganic fertilizer may be a sound fertilizer practice for sustainable food production.
Agronomic and economic evaluation of site-specific nutrient management for irrigated wheat in northwest India
Similar to other regions of Asia, irrigated wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield increases in Punjab, India, have slowed in recent years. Future yield increases may occur in smaller increments through
Nitrogen surface runoff losses from a Chinese cabbage field under different nitrogen treatments in the Taihu Lake Basin, China
The excessive use of nitrogen (N) fertilizer for crop production can cause substantial N losses through surface runoff, generating serious nonpoint pollution. A thorough understanding of N runoff

Nitrate (NO3−) leaching from agriculturalproduction systems is blamed for the rising concentrations ofNO3− in ground- and surface-waters around the world.This paper reviews the evidence of NO3−
Phosphorus leaching in relation to soil type and soil phosphorus content.
No general correlation could be found between P concentrations and soil test P (Olsen P and phosphorus content in ammonium lactate extract [P-AL]) or P sorption indices (single-point phosphorus sorption index [PSI] and P Sorption saturation) of the topsoil, and water transport mechanism through the soil and subsoil properties seemed to be more important for P leaching than soil testP value in the topSOil.
