• High variation of fungal communities and associated potential plant pathogens induced by long-term addition of N fertilizers rather than P, K fertilizers: A case study in a Mollisol field

    Abstract
    Nitrogen , phosphate , and potassium are the three most important nutrients applied into agricultural soils, but the impacts of their single or combined application on soil fungal community structure and stability are still open questions. Using qPCR and Illumina Miseq sequencing, the variation of soil fungal communities in response to long-term addition of N, P, or K fertilization alone and their combinations in a Mollisol field was investigated in this study. In addition, the fungal community resistance indices and network structure were studied. Results showed that N...
