C and N net mineralization kinetics during the incubation of mixtures of organic materials in control soil with pig slurry and sugarcane straw (PS-S) (a, b, c, d, e, f) and with sewage sludge and straw (DS-S) (g, h, i, j, k, l). The measurements are the black circles. The predictions with the simple additive model are the red diamonds, with the corresponding Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency index (Ef in red). The predictions with CANTIS are the black lines, with the corresponding Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency index (Ef in black). PS-Scor, pig slurry and sugarcane straw (d, e, f), and DS-Scorr, sewage sludge and straw (j, k, i), display the simulation with CANTIS using a modified contact factor KMZ with the new corresponding Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency index (Ef).

Investigating interactions between sugarcane straw and organic fertilizers recycled together in a soil using modelling of C and N mineralization.
