In the coastal Batinah plain of Oman, a litterbag experiment was carried out in an irrigated field, investigating the effects of organic fertilization and mineral fertilization on the cultivation of carrots and cauliflower. Two straw varieties and two green-harvested crops were used, simulating the properties of green manures. The loss of C in the litterbags declined in the order maize (−94%) > alfalfa (−89%) > wheat (−80%) > canola (−69%). For all these materials, the concentration of muramic… CONTINUE READING
