INTENSITY OF THE MINERALIZATION OF ORGANIC MATTER IN THE DYSTRI ALBELUVISOL

Monika Vilkienė, Dalia Ambrazaitienė

Abstract


Anthropogenic activities have a negative impact on the whole ecosystem stability and long-term soil productivity. Tillage is the oldestform of human impact on the environment, which is a significant increase in the twentieth century and has gained a new undesirabletraits. One of the side effects caused by intensive farming technologies - this is the decline in soil organic matter . In one keyindicator of the quality of the soil can be considered a common microbial biomass accumulation in the plowed layer. That microorganismsare the main decomposers of organic material, but the physical polluted soil reduces the number of microorganisms, slowbiochemical processes and incurred crop production losses. The aim - based on the isolated microorganisms in the population and toassess the intensity of mineralization, which tillage technology have the least negative impact on the soil of West Lithuanian.

KEY WORDS: tillage, mineralization, soil microorganisms, Albeluvisols
