nitrogen cycling

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Experimentation will focus on molecular techniques to understand the activity of soil microbial communities in releasing nutrients, coupled with detailed measures of soil nutrient cycling... Molecular techniques to understand the soil microbial communities role in nutrient release will be applied to field experiments to determine whether these soil biological processes can be manipulated through agronomic management to improve the prediction of nutrient cycling and crop productivity... Information from both outputs will be used to evaluate whether the presence and activity of these soil biological communities can be modified by different agricultural practices...

Managing microbes to manage nitrogen.. Research into soil microbes may identify ways to keep more nitrogen in the soil and available to crops... By studying how nitrogen is processed in soil systems and which microbes are responsible, Dr Phillips can explore how agronomic practices influence those microbial communities and improve nitrogen uptake...
