nitrogen availability

Estimation of chemical availability indexes of soil nitrogen

Faculty of Agriculture, Belgrade-Zemun (1,2,3)


The researches were performed on brown forest soil used within stationary experiment with a certain fertilizing system for more than 40 years. Researches were made on experiment variants where the increasing dosage of nitrogen fertilizer was applied. The aim of the research was to establish which plant and soil parameters (pots and/or field) might be considered reliable to evaluate values of applied chemical methods (hot water method and easily hydrolyzing nitrogen), being methods used to evaluate potentially mineralized nitrogen in soil.

Estimation of soil nitrogen availability

Faculty of Agriculture, Belgrade-Zemun (1,2)


Our research has been made on brown forest soil that is used in long-term experiments. The soil we used had a certain crop rotation (wheat-corn) and had been fertilized according to a certain system for 30 years. In the experiment, quantities of nitrogen fertilizers were gradually increased after which samples were taken from 0 to 30 cm depths in order to establish plant and soil parameters for assessing the applied methods. Two experiments were made: one in the field and one in a controlled environment.
