Abstract Mulching can effectively maintain and improve soil health and functionality. The mechanisms, however, have not been fully elucidated. Therefore, the effects of temperature on the biogeochemical properties of soil were investigated in the present study in relation to nitrogen management and soil functionality. The results of the 3-year field experiments showed that integrated straw mulch (S) and nitrogen fertilizer (N) treatments enhanced the activities of soil urease, invertase, alkalin...

Abstract The use of crop residues as mulching materials or organic fertilizer, instead of burning, can help improve the soil organic carbon (SOC) and crop grain yield. An experiment was conducted for three consecutive seasons from 2013 to 2016, to study the effect of no straw (S0), S1/2 (700 kg/ha soybean straw, and 3000 kg/ha wheat straw), and S1 (1400 kg ha−1 soybean straw, and 6000 kg/ha wheat straw) treatments in wheat-soybean multi-crop system. The randomized complete block design was used ...

Abstract In North-west china, the soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) is grown in June, when the climate is dry, and soil has limited moisture contents. Moisture deficiency limits the soybean biomass. We studied the effects of wheat straw mulching and nitrogen on soybean growth, physiology and soil properties in three-year field experiments. The treatments included three straw mulching i.e. S1 (0 kg ha−1), S2 (3000 kg ha−1) and S3 (6000 kg ha−1), and three nitrogen rates i.e. N1 (0 kg N ha−1), N2 (21...

Abstract Addition of organic material, such as crop straw mulch in most soils is considered a strategy for sustainable agricultural production. We conducted a two-year experiment in 2015 and 2016 to determine changes in soil biochemical properties and maize yield in response to treatment with wheat-straw mulch. The treatments consisted of the addition of different levels of wheat-straw mulch (S1: 0, S2: 2500, S3: 5000 kg ha−1). Soil samples from four depths (0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4 m) were collec...
