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 ...
Assessing the impact of non-urea ruminant urine nitrogen compounds on urine patch nitrous oxide emissions
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2018-07)
Urea, the dominant form of N in ruminant urine, degrades in soil to produce N2O emissions. However, the fate of non-urea urine N compounds (NUNCs) in soil and their contribution to urine patch N2O emissions remain unclear. ...
Potential for forage diet manipulation in New Zealand pasture ecosystems to mitigate ruminant urine derived N₂O emissions: a review
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2016)
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions from agricultural soils account for more than 10% of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock urine deposition drives N₂O losses from these soils. It has been speculated that non-urea ...
