In order to make more efficient use of mineral nitrogen fertilizers, the mineralization of organic N has to be fully understood and taken into account when meeting the nitrogen demand of crops. Aerobic long-term incubation experiments (147 days) based on the method by Stanford and Smith (1972, Soil Sci Soc Am Proc 36: 465), modified by Nordmeyer and Richter (1985, Plant Soil 39: 433), were carried out with paddy soils (Typic Epiaquepts) from two different locations in the Taihu Region in… CONTINUE READING
