Abstract

Zebarth, B. J., Forge, T. A., Goyer, C. and Brin, L. D. 2015. Effect of soil acidification on nitrification in soil. Can. J. Soil Sci. 95: 359-363. This laboratory experiment examined the effect of elemental S-induced variation in soil pH (3.97-5.29) on nitrification enzyme activity and conversion of cjss-2015-040ileq1.gif to cjss-2015-040ileq2.gif. Nitrification rate generally decreased with decreasing soil pH, but still proceeded rapidly within the pH range (4.5 to 5.2) recommended for blueberry production, contrary to what is generally assumed.
