Nitrogen-15 recovery fraction in flooded tropical rice as affected by Added Nitrogen Interaction

, : Nitrogen-15 recovery fraction in flooded tropical rice as affected by Added Nitrogen Interaction. European journal of agronomy: the journal of the European Society for Agronomy(2): 161-167

The application of N fertilizer has been shown to cause an apparent increase in the uptake of native soil N via an effect termed 'Added nitrogen interaction' (ANI). This ANI, caused by pool-substitution, can affect the 15N-recovery fraction (NRF) by plants as calculated by the isotope-dilution method. The ANI effect was studied in a field experiment with transplanted and direct seeded flooded rice, comparing three methods of N-application (broadcast and incorporation of prilled urea; band placement of urea solution; and point placement of urea supergranules). ANI's for broadcast and incorporation treatments were generally greater than those for band and point placement treatments. The values for NRF calculated by the isotope-dilution method were lower than those of the apparent N-recovery fraction (ARF) as calculated by the difference method. Most of the discrepancy between plant nitrogen recoveries estimated by the isotope-dilution and the difference method could be explained by fertilizer losses and by pool-substitution, which means that fertilizer N stands proxy for soil N.
