Denitrification, a soil quality indicator


Denitrification, a soil quality indicator



DIAS Report, Plant Production 38: 73-80



The aim of the present paper is to describe the use and experience of a soil microbial test method based on the measurement of potential denitrification activity. The results and the usefulness of potential denitrification activity as a soil quality indicator is discussed in relation to other biological, chemical and physical properties.
