    Solution :

     Nitrogen is present in the environment as organic nitrogen, ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, nitrous oxide, nitric oxide or inorganic nitrogen gas. Nitrogen is available to plants as either ammonium \[(N{{H}_{4}}^{+})\] or nitrate \[(N{{O}_{3}}^{-})\]. Chemical processing or natural fixation (bacterial conversion) is necessary to convert gaseous nitrogen into compounds such as nitrate or ammonia which can be used by plants.
