Effects of fertilizer N and soil moisture on mineralization, N recovery and A-values, under spring wheat grown in small lysimeters
The influence of rate of fertilizer N and soil moisture on N uptake by spring wheat, N mineralization, A-values and N recovery was determined in small lysimeters on stubble land by means of 15N-labelled KNO3. Net mineralization was enhanced by frequent irrigations but depressed by cropping. In contrast to most growth chamber results, N uptake was not linearly but logarithmically related to rate of application; uptake from fertilizer was positively related to rate, but only up to a point beyond which it levelled off; uptake from native soil N was generally negatively related to rate; A-values ...
