Yaacob, Othman and Tan, Keh Huat and Tham, Kah Cheng (1979) Organic matter and nitrogen studies in Malaysian soils. In: Seminar on Chemistry and Fertility of Malaysian Soils, 10 Dec. 1979, Serdang, Malaysia. (pp. 3-11).

Abstract / Synopsis

The natural distribution of organic matter (OM) and nitrogen (N) in selected eco-system and some problem soils is outlined. The influence of clearing, burning and cropping on the levels of OM and N is also discussed. The effective use of legume and natural covers in regulating and maintaining the amount of OM and N in selected plantation crops is compared and discussed along with the use of fertilizer N in wet rice cultivation and annual crop production on arable soils. More adequate management of crop residue and organic matter on intensive legume-based crop system on soils (Oxisole and Utisole) is also outlined.
