¹⁵N recoveries from ruminant urine patches on three forage types
(Springer Verlag on behalf of the Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2017-05-17)
Background and aims: ¹⁵Nitrogen balances are useful tools to increase our understanding of soil N processes and the efficiency of plants in taking up animal urine-N. This study aimed to investigate the effect of forage ...
Potential inhibition of urine patch nitrous oxide emissions by Plantago lanceolata and its metabolite aucubin
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2017-12-12)
Plantain (Plantago lanceolata L.), a forage used in grazed pastures, contains active secondary metabolites that could potentially inhibit nitrification, a key step in nitrous oxide (N₂O) production from grazing ruminant ...
Comparison of nitrate leaching from oats and Italian ryegrass catch crops following simulated winter forage grazing: a field lysimeter study
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2017)
Intensive winter forage grazing systems have a high risk of environmental impact due to nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching from urine deposition on cool, wet, fallow soils. We investigated the effect of sowing two catch crops after ...
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 ...
