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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
