Nitrogen release during decomposition of crop residues under conventional and zero tillage



Nitrogen release during decomposition of crop residues under conventional and zero tillage



Canadian Journal of Soil Science 86(1): 11-19



The litter-bag method was used in field experiments to determine nitrogen (N) loss patterns from decomposing red clover (Trifolium pratense) green manure (GM). field pea (Pisum sativum). canola (Brassica rapa) and monoculture wheat (Triticum aestivum) residues under conventional and zero tillage. Nitrogen contained in crop residues ranged from 10 kg, ha(-1) in wheat under both tillage systems to 115 kg ha(-1) in clover GM under zero tillage.
