A Review of Biochar and Soil Nitrogen Dynamics
Stable isotopes and trace elements as New Zealand geo-location markers for biosecurity
A collaborative PhD programme aims to assess the value of stable isotope and trace element analysis for determining the origin of high impact exotic insect pests that threaten New Zealand’s biosecurity.
Nitrogen fertilizer and urine patch interaction-use of APSIM to aid experimental design
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2011-02)
Previous studies have shown that leaching losses from pasture-based systems occurs predominantly from urine deposited by grazing animals, but also following fertiliser application. However, there is limited understanding ...
Fate of urine nitrogen applied to peat and mineral soils from grazed pastures
(Lincoln University, 1994)
This study has provided fundamental information on the fate of urine nitrogen (N) when applied to pasture soils. In this work the three pasture soils used were a Bruntwood silt loam (BW), an old well-developed (lime and ...
Influence of soil moisture on codenitrification fluxes from a urea-affected pasture soil
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-05-19)
Intensively managed agricultural pastures contribute to N₂O and N₂ fluxes resulting in detrimental environmental outcomes and poor N use efficiency, respectively. Besides nitrification, nitrifier-denitrification and ...
Accounting for the utilization of a N₂O mitigation tool in the IPCC inventory methodology for agricultural soils
(Springer Netherlands, 2007)
In this study we review recent studies where dicyandiamide was used as a nitrification inhibitor to reduce both N₂O emissions from urine patches and nitrate leaching from pasture systems, and which led to the development ...
Lime and soil moisture effects on nitrous oxide emissions from a urine patch
(Soil Science Society of America, 2004)
Liming has been mooted as a mitigation option for lowering soil N₂O emissions. This study investigated the effect of soil pH and soil water content on N₂O and N₂ emissions following the addition of synthetic urine (500 kg ...
Soil gas diffusivity controls N₂O and N₂ emissions and their ratio
(Soil Science Society of America, 2016-05-06)
Knowledge of soil biological and physical interactions with respect to N₂O and N₂ fluxes is essential to ensure that agricultural land management is environmentally and economically sustainable. This study determined how ...
Dairy farm effluent effects on urine patch nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide emissions
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2005)
Dairy farm effluent (DFE) comprises animal feces, urine, and wash-down water collected at the milking shed. This is collected daily during the milking season and sprayed onto grazed dairy pastures. Urine patches in grazed ...
