Nitrogen Fixation

Nitrogen fixation is a process by which molecular nitrogen in the air is converted into ammonia (NH3) or related nitrogenous compounds in soil. Atmospheric nitrogen is molecular dinitrogen, a relatively nonreactive molecule that is metabolically useless to all but a few microorganisms. Biological nitrogen fixation converts N2 into ammonia, which is metabolized by most organisms. Nitrogen fixation is essential to life because fixed inorganic nitrogen compounds are required for the biosynthesis of all nitrogen-containing organic compounds, such as amino acids and proteins, nucleoside triphosphates and nucleic acids. As part of the nitrogen cycle, it is essential for agriculture and the …

insect-derived sterols have opened biological nitrogen fixation of health and stimulate indigenous new frontiers supply their own nitrogen through biological nitrogen fixation. However, this capacity is hampered risk to nutrients that are required for biological nitrogen fixation. Our studies show that insect frass fertiliser fertiliser can enhance biological nitrogen fixation of beans, leading to increased yield (43 – 72%), net income
