Abstract:

Nitrogen in manure occurs mainly in organic forms (e.g., proteins) and as ammonium (NH4+). Some composted manures contain small amounts of nitrate. Ammonium and nitrate are plant-available forms of N, while organic N is not immediately plant-available. Before organic N can be taken up, however, it must first be converted to inorganic forms. This process, which is completed by soil microbes as a by-product of organic matter decomposition, is called mineralization. The mineralization rate is therefore the rate at which organic N is made plant available. In manure forage systems, mineralization accounts for much or most of crop needs. To calculate the N fertilizer value of manure and to construct crop N budgets, an estimate of the rate of mineralization is useful. An understanding of the mineralization rate concept can help improve manure management to meet crop N demands.However, proper management of organic manures requires a capacity to predict their effect of N dynamics in inceptisol and their availability to crops. The quality of organic material is reflected in the carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and C/N ratio. These quality indicators are useful in predicting the N turnover and mineralization of organic residues. Generally, manures with low C/N ratio (lesser than 10:1) result in greater N availability at the early stage of decomposition. Therefore it gives real benefits of applying these organic materials to soil.
