Temperature alters dicyandiamide (DCD) efficacy for multiple reactive nitrogen species in urea-amended soils: Experiments and modeling
Dicyandiamide (DCD) is a nitrification inhibitor (NI) used to reduce reactive nitrogen (N) losses from soils. While commonly used, its effectiveness varies widely. Few studies have measured DCD and temperature effects on ...
Urine patch detection using LiDAR technology to improve nitrogen use efficiency in grazed pastures
In grazed dairy pastures, the largest N source for both nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching and nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions is urine-N excreted by the animals. Additional application of N on urine patches as fertilizer may increase ...
Modelling the growth of young rainforest trees for biomass estimates and carbon sequestration accounting
Few measurements for carbon sequestration, ratio of above-ground to below-ground biomass and wood density exist for young trees. Current allometric models are mostly for mature trees, and few consider trees at the sapling ...
Predicting field capacity in undisturbed stony soils
An increasing number of studies around the world are showing that a long-held assumption that rock fragments (RFs) are inert with respect to water retention is incorrect. Yet very few pedotransfer functions (PtFs) account ...
