Transformations and losses of fertilizer nitrogen on no till and conventional till soils


, : Transformations and losses of fertilizer nitrogen on no till and conventional till soils. Fertilizer Research 10(2): 135-146

A field study was conducted in 1982 to measure the effect of no-till (NT) and conventional till (CT) systems on N transformation after surface and subsurface applications of N fertilizers. Urea, urea-ammonium nitrate (UAN) solution, (NH4)2SO4 (AS), and CA(NO3)2 were applied to NT and CT plots (5.95 m2) at a rate of 448 kg N ha-1. A comparison of fertilizer N recovered in soils receiving incorporated or surface applied N was used to estimate NH3 volatilization while denitrification was estimated from fertilizer N recovered in the presence and absence of nitrapyrin with incorporated N. Immobilization was assessed in microplots (0.37 m2) after surface application of (15NH4)2SO4 to NT and CT systems at a rate of 220 kg N ha-1. The results indicate litle difference between NT and CT systems on urea hydrolysis rates and immobilization of surface applied fertilizer N. Approximately 50% and 10% of the surface applied N was recovered in the inorganic and organic fractions, respectively, on both tillage systems. The N not recovered was likely lost from plot areas through soil runoff. Incorporation of UAN, urea and AS resulted in 20 to 40% greater inorganic N recovery than from surface application. Nitrification rates were greater under the NT than the CT system. The similarities in concentration in the various N pools observed between the two tillage systems may be partially due to the short length of time that NT was imposed in this field study (1 year) since other researchers using established tillage system (> 5 y) indicate that NT tends to promote decreased efficiency of feritilizer N.
