Abstract

When straw was incubated with a calcareous soil under water-logged conditions nitrogen fixation occurred if the gas above the incubation contained oxygen: no detectable fixation occurred if oxygen was excluded. Moist soil failed to fix nitrogen when incubated with straw in either the presence or absence of oxygen.
