How is nitrogen good for plants?

Nitrogen Requirements for Plants. As organic matter decomposes, nitrogen is slowly converted to ammonium, which is absorbed by plant roots. Excess ammonium is turned into nitrate, which plants also use to produce protein. However, unused nitrates remain in the groundwater, resulting in leaching of the soil.

What vegetables are high in nitrogen?

Fruits and Vegetables. Legumes and soy products are the only types of vegetables that are high in protein. Some fruits and vegetables are high in purines, however, and thus contribute to your nitrogen intake. These include legumes, cauliflower, spinach, green peas and asparagus.
