- ... Carbon 13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (¹³C NMR) is a powerful technique for studying the structure and turnover of soil organic matter, but is time consuming and expensive. It is therefore worth seeking swifter and cheaper methods. Diffuse reflectance FT-IR spectroscopy (DRIFT), along with partial least squares (PLS) algorithms, provides statistical models to quantify soil properties, ...

- ... One way to increase the amount of carbon sequestered in agricultural land is to convert conventional tillage into no-tillage systems. This greatly affects the location of crop residues in soil. To investigate the impact of the location of residues on soil physical and biological properties and how the interactions between those properties influence the fate of carbon and nitrogen in soil, we did a ...
