Determining nutrient release pattern is very important when dealing with unknown or new sources of plant nutrients, particularly organic waste products. Urine has been shown to contain significant concentrations of nitrogen in mineral form, which is important for plant growth. Studying nitrogen release pattern helps to time and optimize nitrogen application. A laboratory incubation experiment was conducted to determine the nitrogen release pattern of urine and urine-derived nutrient sources in… CONTINUE READING
