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 ...
Reducing nitrogen leaching losses in grazed dairy systems using an Italian ryegrass-plantain-white clover forage mix
(Wiley on behalf of the British Grassland Society and the European Grassland Federation, 2018-12)
In grazed agricultural systems, animal urine patches are the major source of nitrogen (N) leaching losses and can cause a decline in water quality. Urine-N rates often exceed plant requirements, and there is a need for ...
Effects of forage type and gibberellic acid on nitrate leaching losses
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2016-12)
Nitrogen (N) leaching from soil into water is a significant concern for intensively grazed forage-based systems because it can cause a decline in water quality and is a risk to human health. Urine patches from grazing ...
