Only in air-dried arable soils was there a corresponding decrease in ethylene production with increasing nitrate concentration. Addition of 100 /oLg nitratejg soil had a negligible effect on ethylene formation, whereas up to 2000 /oLg nitratejg soil reduced ethylene production by 85%. However, ethylene production was not completely arrested, even at this level of nitrate addition. Therefore, normal soil concentrations of nitrate and even those following fertilization would not appear to be inhibitory to ethylene formation.
Adsorption to colloidal surfaces and degradation by nonsensitive microorganisms would also attenuate the concentrations of these substances in soil (Gottlieb, 1976). 2b. Volatile. Numerous workers have demonstrated that volatile toxic substances are released from soil (Lockwood, 1977). In most of the reports, the toxic substance was not identified; however, some volatile toxicants have been identified and their importance to soil biology assessed. Ammonia. , 1978). It enters fungal cells primarily by free diffusion of the undissociated molecule (MacMillan, 1956).
Colonizable substrate is required for any appreciable ethylene production in soil. , 1979) reported 17 ppm ethylene in the headspace above humus and 153 ppm above pine-needle litter held in sealed bottles. Mineral soils with pine roots removed evolved ethylene at a very slow rate, whereas in the presence of pine roots ethylene was formed at a considerably faster rate. Athough ethylene formation in soil requires the presence of soil organic matter (Goodlass and Smith, 1978a), there appears to be no difference between the amount produced in grassland soils, which are high in organic matter, and in arable soils, which contain less organic matter.
