Abstract

The effects of furano compounds, furfural (furfuraldehyde) and furfuryl alcohol (5, 10, 20 and 30% of N applied) on nitrification of ammonium sulfate and urea N were studied in a sandy clay loam in laboratory. Both furfural and furfuryl alcohol significantly retarded the nitrification rates of both the fertilizers by inhibiting the conversion of NH4 + to NO2 - without affecting the oxidation of NO2 - to NO3 --N. 10, 20 and 30% concentrations of the compounds were effective up to 75 days with ammonium sulfate but more or less up to 45 days with urea.
