Quantitative root ecology as element of soil fertility theory

, : Quantitative root ecology as element of soil fertility theory. Netherlands Journal of Agricultural Science 34(3): 273-281

Nutrient use efficiency with special reference to the soil/plant system, soil fertility theory relating to fertilizers, plant nutrition, soil properties and root ecology and aspects of quantitative root ecology are considered and an approach to modelling the relation of root ecology to soil fertility theory is outlined.

Fine-scale soil nutrient enrichment typically stimulates root growth, but it may also increase root herbivory, resulting in trade-offs for plant species and potentially influencing carbon cycling patterns. We used root ingrowth cores to investigat...

In a study of the factors affecting yield on large mechanized farms on Belgian loamy soils, chemical analysis of the soils was unsatisfactory for predicting fertilizer requirements. A method is advocated based on computing gains and losses in nutr...
