Aerobic N(2)O production was studied in nitrifying humus from urea-fertilized pine forest soil. Acetylene and nitrapyrin inhibited both NH(4) oxidation and N(2)O production, indicating that N(2)O production was closely associated with autotrophic NH(4) oxidation. N(2)O production was enhanced by low soil pH; it was negligible above pH 4.7. When soil pH decreased from 4.7 to 4.1, the relative amount of N(2)O-N produced from NH(4)-N oxidized increased exponentially to 20%. There was also some… CONTINUE READING
