Nitrogen Notes – Dentrification

 |  Fact Sheet  |  Research

Denitrification is a natural soil microbial process where nitrate (NO3-) is converted to nitrogen (N) gases that are lost to the atmosphere. Denitrification occurs when soil bacteria use nitrate for their respira-tion in the place of oxygen in the air. This process occurs most rapidly in warm, wet soils with an abundance of nitrate
