Steps Of the Nitrogen Cycle

  1. Nitrogen (N2) is converted in ammonia (NH3) by bacteria in water and soil, and subsequently converted into nitrite and its derivatives.
  2. Plants get nitrogen from the soil through the roots, producing organic compounds.
  3. Animals absorb nitrogen by eating the plants.
  4. Decomposed plants and animals, along with the solid waste return nitrogen into the soil.
  5. Bacteria convert ammonia into nitrite and nitrate.
  6. These compounds are then converted into pure nitrogen by nitrifying bacteria, taking it back into the atmosphere.
