Amino Acid Composition Of Soil Organic Matter And Nitrogen Transformations In Soils Under Different Management Systems , Zachary Ngewoh Senwo
Retrospective Theses and Dissertations
Studies of amino acid composition of soil organic matter extracted from 10 Iowa surface soils and from surface soils of two long-term rotation experiments showed that, with the exception of asparagine plus aspartic acid and glutamine plus glutamic acid, the other 13 amino acids, expressed as percentages of total amino acid extracted, were very uniform among the soils. The total amino acid extracted was significantly correlated with organic C (r = 0.79[superscript]\*\*) and clay content (r = 0.76[superscript]\*\*), but not with total N. Expressed as percentages of organic C and N in soils, the amounts extracted ranged from ...
