      lessen the loss of Nitrogen,
      that then will be liberated later on ( perhaps in growing season).

      >Well, I have another book here from Burkhard Kayser "Mulch und Untersaaten" from 1998 that says on page 55 (attempt of translation):"At the beginning of a mulch-system there can be under circumstances a temporary fixation of nitrogen from the soil. This N is used by the microorganisms to built down materials with much more carbon than N (e.g. straw, sawdust). This N is available to the plants later on, so it isn´t lost. To solve the temporary problem there are the following possibilities...."
