    Agriculture has a large and varying effect on the Nitrogen cycle, Industrial nitrogen fixation occurs for fertilizer manufacture – Large scale planting of Legumes, which largely contribute to biological Nitrogen fixation. Past this, Fertilizer run-off creates nitrogen rich aquatic areas, resulting in algae blooms which can have a massively negative effect on the surrounding ecosystems.

    There are multiple factors that can affect the nitrogen cycle. Some of those include; the amount of nitrogen fixing bacteria that have formed a symbiotic relationship with plants that can perform nitrogen fixation, the amount of fossil fuel combustion in a localized area, the amount of waste produced by livestock and released from sewage systems, the amount of fertilizers used, and the amount of fertilizer that leeches into groundwater sources.
