Soil Enzymes Research: A Review

Zahir Ahmad Zahir, Muhammad Ateeq ur Rehman Malik and Muhammad Arshad

Enzymes are biologically produced proteinic substances having specific activation in which they combine with their substrates in such a stereoscopic position that they cause changes in the electronic configuration around certain susceptible bonds. Their significance in all spheres including soil, is worth tested and reported. In plant nutrition their role cannot be substituted by any other substance and its function is quite pragmatic in solubilizing and dissolving the much needed food in ionic forms for the very survival of animal and plant kingdom. World over, innumerable researchers have contributed their efforts in exploring enzymes. This paper reviews some of the important factors affecting its behaviour, reactions in soil environment, correlation with other enzymes and soil properties, preceded by its historical perspective and sources of production.
