Until recently it has been difficult to determine quantitatively the extent of nitrogen fixation and denitrification in soil, because by conventional methods, only the sum of these two processes their equilibrium state is found. In order to observe these reactions independently, the heavy isotope of nitrogen, N 15, was used. I t is now generally agreed that denitrification implies only the production of nitrogen or gaseous oxides of nitrogen, through the reduction of nitrate, the nitrate acting… CONTINUE READING
