In situ studies of soil mineral N fluxes: some comments on the applicability of the sequential soil coring method in arable soils


, : In situ studies of soil mineral N fluxes: some comments on the applicability of the sequential soil coring method in arable soils. Plant and Soil 183(2): 199-211

Is the sequential in situ incubation of undisturbed soil cores, developed for forest stands applicable to arable soils? The incubation of covered and uncovered soil cores allows the estimation of net nitrogen mineralization (NNM), plant nitrogen uptake (N-uptake) and potential leaching losses (N-trans). The amounts and temporal dynamics of these N fluxes were determined at four arable soils in a two-year study. Results suggest that: (i) the method can not be recommended for the estimation of N uptake and leaching losses, but (ii) it is suitable for the estimation of NNM; (iii) incubations should preferably be started when soil is moist; (iv) the length of incubation periods should be reduced ( lt 4 weeks); (v) dynamics of NNM is mainly determined by temperature and moisture conditions if there is no interference by agricultural management. Inputs of straw, manure, slurry or green manure strongly influence the amount and the dynamics of NNM.
