Title: Nitrifcation of Ammonium Sulphate and Urea Fertilizers under Saline Condition.
Authors: R. M. El-Shahawy

Issue Date: 1984
Abstract: In normally productive sandy clay loam soil, nitrifiaction of ammonium sulphate and urea as affected by salinity, was studied. Generally, increasing salinity delayed suppressed or inhibited nitrification. Urea ammonification was slightly affected by salinity and the process appeared to be chemical rather than biological. N2-N accumulation was positively correlated with the level of salinity, i.e., as salinity increases NO2-N increases and persisted for long time. The relative sensitivity of Nitrobacter to salinity was discussed.
