Title: Nitrogen uptake by ryegrass from organic wastes applied to a sandy loam soil
Author: Cordovil, C.M.d.S.; Cabral, F.; Coutinho, J.; Goss, M.J.
Abstract: Sandy-textured Mediterranean soils are invariably depleted in organic matter and supply only small 3 amounts of N to crops. To compensate for these deficiencies, we tested the N supply from six organic wastes applied to a Cambic Arenosol in pots growing ryegrass. The results showed that the behaviour of the wastes in supplying N to a ryegrass crop grown in this soil can be predicted by observing their performance in laboratory aerobic incubations. The N made available during these incubations fitted well to a one-pool kinetic model.
