Abstract

In laboratory incubation studies 2-amino-4-chloro-6-methyl pyrimidine (AM) and 2-sulfanilamidothiazole (ST) gave partial control of nitrification in soil. In a pot experiment, millable cane yield, dry matter synthesis, and nitrogen uptake were significantly increased by these chemicals. The results are discussed with respect to suppression of nitrification as related to concentration of inorganic nitrogen in soil and growth of sugarcane.
