Carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus stoichiometric ratios under cotton cropping systems in Australian Vertisols: a meta-analysis of seven experiments

Hulugalle, Nilantha; Strong, Craig; McPherson, Kate; Nachimuthu, Guna


Enhancing storage of carbon (C) in agricultural soil has been proposed as a partial solution to offset the accelerated release of greenhouse gases associated with global warming. A net loss of soil C is common in most cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)- based farming systems in Australian Vertisols. Some authors have suggested that an ‘‘ideal’’ stoichiometric ratio C:N:P:S of 10,000:833:200:143 was required for sustained C sequestration. The objective of this study was to determine the C, N, and P...[Show more]
