© 2019, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature. Biochemical reduction of nitrous oxide (N2O) to dinitrogen (N2) by N2O reductase (N2OR) is the only known sink to consume N2O. Copper (Cu) and pH are two key factors determining the activity of the enzyme N2OR. We hypothesized that changes in the Cu level could enhance the reduction of N2O to N2 in denitrifier strains and decrease the N2O emissions from agricultural soils. To test this hypothesis, Cu-modified culture medium was applied to denitrifier strains, and Cu-modified organic fertilizer was applied to both soil microcosms and fields. Of 46 denitrifier strains, 25 showed higher denitrifying activities and 30N2/(46N2O + 30N2) after the addition of Cu under pure culture conditions. Among 10 genera, Azospirillum and Herbaspirillum were the most responsive to the Cu level changes. The N2O flux was significantly reduced 4 or 8 days onwards after the application of 130 mM CuSO4-modified organic fertilizer (vol:wt = 1:1) into Andosol or Fluvisol, respectively, under soil microcosm conditions. In addition, the cumulative N2O emissions were significantly reduced after the application of 130 mM CuSO4-modified organic fertilizer. They were moderately reduced after the application of 130 mM CuSO4-modified organic fertilizer (vol:wt = 1:1) into a Fluvisol field. They were significantly lower in Azospirillum sp. UNPF1-inoculated soils after the application of 130 mM CuSO4-modified organic fertilizer when compared with that in dual non-inoculated and unmodified soils. Soils inoculated with Herbaspirillum sp. UKPF54 showed results similar to non-inoculated Fluvisol fields. These results suggest that Cu may enhance N2O conversion to N2 in denitrifiers and that Cu-modified organic fertilizer may enhance N2O consumption or decrease N2O emissions in agricultural soils.
