The dehydrogenase and invertase activities of three soils were studied under flooded and nonflooded (60% water holding capacity) conditions. Flooding increased (× 1.25 to 2.50) the dehydrogenase activity. In contrast, invertase activity decreased considerably upon flooding. The addition of rice straw increased the invertase activity under both water regimes, but dehydrogenase activity only under flooded conditions.
