Except for urease, activities of the other six enzymes estimated (dehydrogenase, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, aryl sulfatase, [beta]-glucosidase and FDHA) were, on average, higher in Inceptisols, followed by Entisols and Alfisols.
Correlation among the estimated soil enzyme activities DHA, Dehydrogenase activity; FDHA, fluorescein diacetate hydrolysing activity; URE, urease; [beta]-glu, [beta]-glucosidase ; AcP, acid phosphatase; AlkP, alkaline phosphatase; ArS, aryl sulfatase.
Trevor Mundel, President of Global Health Programs at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Lukas Bruhin, Secretary General of the FDHA
and Benno BEnttig, Secretary General of the FDFA, signed the Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate increased collaboration and to start the process of establishing concrete initiatives.
