J.). Humus is the most complex organic molecule found in soil, and as a result it is the most stable organic molecule. The turnover rate for humus ranges from 2 to 5% per year, depending on climatic conditions (Wagner and Wolf, ).This can be compared with the degradation of lignin shown in Figure A, where approximately 50% of lignin added to a silt loam was degraded in days.
