The effect of the nitrification inhibitor nitrapyrin on yield and on nitrogen fractions in soil and tissue of corn (Zea mays L.) grown in the Annapolis valley of Nova Scotia



The effect of the nitrification inhibitor nitrapyrin on yield and on nitrogen fractions in soil and tissue of corn (Zea mays L.) grown in the Annapolis valley of Nova Scotia



Canadian Journal of Plant Science 60(2): 337-347



The application of fertilizer (10-10-10) treated with the nitrification inhibitor nitrapyrin was generally not more effective than fertilizer alone in increasing maize grain yields, although at 1 location the addition of stabilized fertilizer increased the yield by 660 kg/ha over that from plots receiving non-stabilized N fertilizer. Nitrapyrin did not affect the levels of the N fractions in maize tissue but it did inhibit nitrification of soil ammonium-N.
