Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: The content of nitrogen, and nitrate in particular, of some ground- and surface-water supplies is of much concern because of the potential health hazard to infants (methemoglobinemia) and to livestock. It also may contribute to the eutrophication (over-enrichment) of surface bodies of water and may delay the ripening of certain fruits, vegetables, and other crops.
