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 ...
The potential of using alternative pastures, forage crops and gibberellic acid to mitigate nitrous oxide emissions
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016-09)
© 2016, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Purpose: In grazed pastures, nitrous oxide (N₂O), a powerful greenhouse gas and an ozone depletion substance, is mostly emitted from animal excreta, particularly animal urine-N ...
Measuring excreta patch distribution in grazed pasture through low-cost image analysis
(Wiley on behalf of the British Grassland Society and the European Grassland Federation, 2013-09)
Nutrient losses from grazed pasture are an important non-point source of water pollution. The distribution of animal urine patches on pasture is an important factor in determining nitrate losses and influencing pasture ...
