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 ...
Mitigation of nitrous oxide emissions using a nitrification inhibitor, alternative pasture and forage plants and gibberellic acid
In grazed pastures, nitrous oxide (N₂O), the potent greenhouse gas, is mostly emitted from animal excreta, particularly animal urine-N retuned to the soil during grazing. N₂O is produced in the soil through nitrification ...
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 ...
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. ...
A review of plant options for mitigating nitrous oxide emissions from pasture-based systems
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2019-05-15)
In grazed pasture-based systems, urinary-nitrogen (N) voided in concentrated patches is a key source of nitrous oxide (N₂O), a potent greenhouse gas (GHG). Development of strategies for reducing emissions from urine patches ...
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 ...
