The role of higher molecular weight dissolved organic nitrogen in the plant-soil nitrogen cycle

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportPh.d.-afhandling

Efficient use of N in agricultural systems is essential in the strive for sustainability in crop production and to counter the environmental and climate change challenges related to food production. A key issue in predicting plant available N is the turnover of complex higher molecular weight (Mw) organic N, like proteins and peptides, to lower Mw organic N, available for direct plant and microbial uptake.

In this PhD project a compound specific isotope analysis (CSIA) to characterize and quantify 15N and 13C-labeled amino acids from soil and plant samples were set up. Firstly, the CSIA was used to investigate the turnover and rate-limiting step of peptide-sized and protein-sized organic N, in soil with different management histories. Secondly, the CSIA was used to investigate the contribution of protein-sized organic N to the microbial and plant carbon and N nutrition.
