Nitrogen Fixation as a Source of Nitrogen in the Soil

Narcin Palavan-Unsal, Valentin Kefeli and Winfried Blum


Thus, air components are the sources of biomass formation on the FS. Carbon dioxide is the starting gas for the plant photosynthesis and nitrogen of air participates in the process of nitrogen fixation. The biosynthesis of nitrogen containing products- amino acids, proteins and alkaloids is a result of the activity of nitrogen- fixing organisms. The activation of the process of nitrogen fixation is based on gene modification of plant – bacterial symbiosis.
