Nitrification and denitrification are the two most important processes that contribute to greenhouse gas emission and inefficient use of nitrogen. Suppressing soil nitrification through the release of nitrification inhibitors from roots is a plant function, and termed “Biological Nitrification Inhibition (BNI)”. We report here the role and contribution of sorgoleone release to sorghum-BNI function.
