Abstract

Tillage, in spite of creating convenient media for cultivated plants, often causes soil structural decline and decrease of soil organic matter. In our paper we investigated the extent of soil structural modification affected by N mineral fertilizer with a wet sieving method. We observed the dispersion of the larger aggregate fractions into smaller aggregate fragments and primary particles. According to our results application of N mineral fertilizer may cause disaggregating of larger size soil units.
