Fertilizer and Water Management Effects on the Soil Environment Oral (includes student competition)
SSSA Division: Soils and Environmental Quality
Agricultural nutrients and water management have significant influences on soil nutrient dynamics and greenhouse gas emissions. Over the years, we have tried to better understand the soil environment to reduce nutrient losses and to protect soil fertility, organic matter and soil microbial community compositions. Nutrient management practices, like 4R nutrient stewardship, inclusion of cover crop and organic and inorganic amendments, have close connections with water management practices, like subsurface tile drainage and irrigation. In this session, we are inviting field and laboratory studies to explore how nutrient and water management control nutrient and water dynamics in the plant-soil-environment continuum.
