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 ...
Ruminant urine patch nitrification and N₂O flux: Effects of urine aucubin rate in a laboratory trial
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of Royal Society of New Zealand, 2019-06-10)
Livestock urine deposition onto grazed New Zealand pastures drives soil nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions. Urine patch N₂O emissions can be reduced by inhibiting nitrification, a key urine patch nitrogen (N) transformation ...
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 ...
Efficacy of aucubin as a nitrification inhibitor assessed in two Canterbury field trials
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2019-07-25)
Ruminant urine patches are nitrous oxide (N₂O) emission hot-spots and compounds that inhibit nitrification in urine-affected soils, a key step in soil N₂O production, can significantly reduce N₂O emissions. Aucubin, a ...
