Ammonia Retention in Tropical Soils as Influenced by Moisture Content and Continuous Submergence1

Abstract

Abstract

Under laboratory conditions, when moisture contents increased from 0 (oven-dry) to 30%, amount of NH3 retained in noncalcareous medium black soil and lateritic soil decreased. However, subsequent increase in moisture content from 30 to 100% resulted in increased NH3-retention in the soils. Continuous submergence favored NH3-retention in the soils.
