Understanding the effects of external organic and inorganic components on soil fertility and quality is essential for improving low-yielding soils. We conducted a field study over two consecutive rice growing seasons to investigate the effect of applying chemical fertilizer (NPK), NPK plus green manure (NPKG), NPK plus pig manure (NPKM), and NPK plus straw (NPKS) on the soil nutrient status, enzyme activities involved in C, N, P, and S cycling, microbial community and rice yields of yellow…

The Effects of Organic and Mineral Fertilization on Soil Enzyme Activities and Bacterial Community in the Below- and Above-Ground Parts of Wheat
Bacterial community and soil enzymatic activity depend on soil and management conditions. Fertilization is an important approach to maintain and enhance enzyme activities and microbial community
The effects of organic and inorganic phosphorus amendments on the biochemical attributes and active microbial population of agriculture podzols following silage corn cultivation in boreal climate
It is argued that dairy manure amendment with high P2O5 in podzol soils could be a sustainable nutrient source to enhance soil quality, health and forage production of silage corn.
Effect of organic substitution rates on soil quality and fungal community composition in a tea plantation with long-term fertilization
Partial substitution of chemical fertilizers by organic amendments is essential for improving the soil quality without yield loss. Fungi play an important role in soil quality because they decompose
Soil phosphorus availability and stoichiometry determine microbial activity and functional diversity of fluvo-aquic soils under long-term fertilization regimes
The interaction between soil microbial and nutrient characteristics is still under debate, and the long-term fertilization experiment provides a good research platform. The microbial activity
Effects of organic fertilizer on soil nutrient status, enzyme activity, and bacterial community diversity in Leymus chinensis steppe in Inner Mongolia, China
The results indicated that the application of large amounts of vermicompost and mushroom residues increased the availability of nutrients and also enhanced the biodiversity of soil bacterial communities in L. chinensis grasslands, which will contribute to the sustainable development of agro-ecosystems.
The integrated effect of salinity, organic amendments, phosphorus fertilizers, and deficit irrigation on soil properties, phosphorus fractionation and wheat productivity
The combination of mineral P sources with organic amendments could be successfully used as a cost-effective management practice to enhance soil fertility and crop production in the arid and semi-arid regions stressed with water scarcity and natural resource constraints.
Integrated Application of Inorganic and Organic Fertilizer Enhances Soil Organo-Mineral Associations and Nutrients in Tea Garden Soil
Soil quality is one of the main factors that affect the growth and quality of tea (Camellia sinensis L.) plantations. The formation of the organo-mineral complex is one of the critical factors that
Long-term impact of grain legumes and nutrient management practices on soil microbial activity and biochemical properties
ABSTRACT Sustainability of rice-wheat rotation is questioned with soil degradation and depleting natural resources. The study aimed to assess the long-term impact of four crop rotations [rice-wheat,


Effects of different organic fertilization on fertility and enzyme activities of yellow clayey soil
【Objectives】Low-yield yellow clayey soil,with the restrictive factor of poor soil maturation degree,was widely distributed in southern China. The application of organic fertilizers was an important
The alleviation of acid soil stress in rice by inorganic or organic ameliorants is associated with changes in soil enzyme activity and microbial community composition
The effects of calcium-magnesium phosphate, rock phosphate, lime, fly ash, and animal manure as liming agents on the microbial community composition, enzyme activities involved in C, N, P, and S
Responses of absolute and specific soil enzyme activities to long term additions of organic and mineral fertilizer.
Improving fertility and productivity of a highly-weathered upland soil in subtropical China by incorporating rice straw
The transfer of rice straw from paddy fields to upland areas was proposed in our study as an innovative practice to improve the fertility of the highly-weathered and poor upland soils, as well as to
