Agricultural practices, soil characteristics and meteorological conditions are responsible for eventual nitrate accumulation in the subsoil. There is a lot of evidence that denitrification occurs in the subsoil and rates up to 60–70 kg ha-1 yr-1 might be possible. It has also been shown that in the presence of Fe2+ (formed through weathering of minerals) and an alkaline pH, nitrate can be chemically reduced. Another possible pathway of disappearance is through the formation of nitrite, which is… CONTINUE READING
