Mineralization of biuret nitrogen in soil uri icon


  • Study of the mineralization of biuret N under aerobic and anaerobic conditions in a sandy loam showed that higher amounts of mineral N accumulated under anaerobic incubation than under aerobic conditions. Under waterlogged incubation, 46.8% of the 100 ppm biuret N was mineralized while under aerobic conditions only 18.3% of biuret-N was converted into mineral N during 5 weeks at 30°C. The results of the study bring out slow-release nature of biuret-N
