Abstract :

This study aimed to determine the impact of land use on organic carbon (OC) pools of soils with contrasting native organic matter (OM) content. Surface (0-15 cm) soils of four land uses (cropland, orchard, grassland, and fallow) were collected from four agroecological zones (AEZs) of Bangladesh with different OM content (AEZ-7: very low, -3: low, -9: medium, and -5: high). Bulk soils were physically fractionated into particulate and mineral associated OM (POM and MOM: 53 and
