Soil microbial biomass (SMB) activity was investigated in a long-term experiment in which grazed swards received annual inputs of 200 N kg ha–1. SMB total C and total N, specific respiration, ammonification and nitrification were examined over a 10 week period, following the first and the second seasonal applications of N. Whilst there was no effect on… CONTINUE READING
