Nitrogen fertilizer applied to crops lingers in the soil and leaks out as nitrate for decades towards groundwater — «much longer than previously thought,» scientists in France and at the University of Calgary say in a new study.Thirty years after synthetic nitrogen fertilizer had been applied to crops in 1982, about 15 percent of the fertilizer N still remained in soil organic matter, the scientists found.
