How is atmospheric nitrogen utilized by plants?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
First atmospheric nitrogen is fixed either by lightning or by living organisms like certain bacteria and blue green algae. As a result, nitrogen is converted into usable compounds of nitrogen. These can be utilised by plants from the soil through their root system for producing plant proteins and other compounds.
