Floods didn't provide nitrogen 'fix' for earliest crops in frigid North
Date:11/6/2013

, nitrogen fertilization rates are spiraling upward, driving up fossil-fuel consumption, DeLuca said. Meanwhile, cyanobacteria naturally occurring in farm soils aren't fixing nitrogen at all in the presence of all that fertilizer, they just don't expend the energy when nitrogen is so readily available, he said.

"Although modest in comparison to modern fertilization, the observation that cyanobacteria could drive the productivity of these boreal floodplain systems so effectively for so long makes one question whether cyanobacteria could be used to maintain the productivity of agricultural systems, without large synthetic nitrogen fertilizer inputs," he said.
