The intensities of the bands were quantified densitometrically using ImageJ software version 1.47 (http://imagej.en.softonic.com/).
([dagger]) Results were obtained densitometrically using EUROLineScan software (EUROIMMUN AG, Lubeck, Germany) and transformed into semiquantitative categories (negative, -, 0-13; weakly positive, (+), 14-20; positive, +, 21-255).
POC, the densitometrically separated physical fractions of TOC, increased significantly (P [less than or equal to] 0.05; 73-79%) after application of biofertiliser and enriched biocompost compared with inorganic fertiliser alone (44%) and control soil (Table 1).
