  • ) Residues Was Studied During Three Years In Small Field Plots And Lysimeters
  • The Residual Organic Labelled N Declined Rapidly During The Initial Weeks Of Decomposition
  • Due To High Rates Of Residue N Net Mineralization And Subsequent Leaching And Denitrification Losses
  • Lysimeter Experiments Showed That Pea Residues May Reduce Leaching Losses Of N
  • Probably Due To Their Effect On The Mineralization-Immobilizalion Turnover Of N And Denitrification
  • Winter Barley Succeeding Field Pea Recovered 13% Of The Incorporated Pea Residue N By Early December
