The effect of optimum vs deficit irrigation on plant nitrogen uptake and nitrate leaching loss from soil
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2016)
Nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching, associated with urine nitrogen (N) deposition during grazing is recognised as a significant environmental problem. In this study it was hypothesised that optimum irrigation could increase plant ...
Nitrate leaching losses are lower from ryegrass/white clover forages containing plantain than from ryegrass/white clover forages under different irrigation
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2018-04-18)
The aim of this research was to assess the potential of using perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) and white clover (Trifolium repens) forages containing plantain (Plantago lanceolata L.) (PRGWC + Plantain) to mitigate ...
Effect of two irrigation rates on nitrate leaching from diverse or standard forages receiving spring deposited urine
(Royal Society of New Zealand and Taylor & Francis, 2017-12-20)
The effect of two irrigation rates on nitrogen (N) harvested by diverse and standard forages, and the subsequent effect on nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching losses from spring deposited urine was investigated. An experiment, using ...
