THE EFFECT OF HIGH SOLUTE CONCENTRATIONS ON NITRIFICATION RATES IN SOIL

Abstract:

A short term nitrification assay (<18 h) was used to assess the effect of high concentrations of different solutes on the rate of nitrate production. High solute concentrations were found to inhibit nitrification and the degree of inhibition was related both to the osmotic pressure of the soil solution and the osmoticum used. Ammonium chloride, ammonium sulphate and sorbitol were used as sources of osmotic pressure. The results showed that, with ammonium salts, no inhibition was observed w...
