SEASONAL DYNAMICS OF NITROGEN IN CULTIVATED SOIL AT GIAO THUY DISTRICT, NAM DINH PROVINCE
Keywords:fertilizer application, nitrogen fertilizer, leaching.
This paper focuses on evaluating the nitrogen mineralization and NH4+ and NO3- leaching from the root zone in cultivated soils of Giao Thuy district, Nam Dinh province using Synthetic accumulation (SIA) method. Main findings reveal that total N content in vegetable fields and rice-vegetable-rotational fields ranges from 17.68 – 113.68 kgN ha-1, and from 14.64 – 132.59 kgN ha-1, respectively. Total N is also significantly different between saline paddy-fields and fresh-water fields, varies between 16.33 – 82.12 kgN ha-1 and from 23.89 – 74.04 kgN ha-1, respectively. NO3- accounts for a larger proportion in vegetable fields and accumulated higher during the dry season; NH4+ predominates in paddy fields and accumulated mainly in rainy season. The N leaching losses decreased in the following order: vegetable, rice-vegetable rotation, non-saline and saline soil.
