Mixed nitrate (NO3-) and ammonium (NH4+) as nitrogen source can improve plant growth. The underlying mechanism was explored by using metabolomics and transcriptome. Maize plants were grown hydroponically with three nitrogen forms (nitrate, 75/25 nitrate/ammonium and ammonium). Mixed N increased photosynthetic rate compared to nitrate supply, and had the highest leaf area, shoot and root biomass among the three nitrogen treatments. In shoot and root, the concentration of nitrogenous compounds (NH4+, Gln, Asn) and carbohydrates...
