Application of nitrogenous fertilizers may delay the period of ripening somewhat.
They vary considerably in nitrogenous matter, averaging about 25 per cent.
Approximately 90 per cent of the nitrogenous portion (casein) was retained in the body.
Nitrates may also be formed in the combustion of nitrogenous bodies.
The increased oxidation gives us a reason why the nitrogenous food must be increased during periods of great exertion.
In the kidneys, it loses water and nitrogenous wastes (urea).
These are generally known as nitrogenous foods, and are very nutritious, but not so easily digestible as meat.
A deficiency of nitrogenous food would also, it seems to me, be an evil.
A crop of peas, beans, or clover is equivalent to nitrogenous fertilizer and helps to make ready the soil for other crops.
The bulk of the grain was corn in the carbonaceous, and wheat in the nitrogenous ration.
