Effects of phosphorus and nitrogen on growth of pasture plants and VAM fungi in SE Australian soils with contrasting fertiliser histories (conventional and biodynamic)

Ryan, Matthew; Ash, Julian

Description

The soil biological community has been reported to differ between conventional and alternative (organic and biodynamic) farming systems. However, few studies have investigated whether this results in substantial differences in the biological pathways controlling major ecosystem processes, such as plant nutrient uptake. This paper describes a glasshouse experiment conducted using a red-brown earth (Natrixeralf) soil sampled from three conventional and three biodynamic irrigated dairy pastures...[Show more]
