Cattle diet and winter plant growth effects on nitrogen losses from cattle urine patches
(Springer Nature, 2020-04-01)
Nitrogen (N) losses from agricultural land is a major environmental concern, as N leaching can cause eutrophication and nitrous oxide (N₂O) is a greenhouse gas. A lysimeter experiment was undertaken to investigate the ...
Effects of plantain in pasture on nitrous oxide emissions from cattle urine patches, as affected by urine deposition timing and soil type
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of The Royal Society of New Zealand, 2021-10-17)
Two lysimeter experiments were conducted to quantify the effect of including plantain in pasture on nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions from cattle urine patches, as affected by urine deposition timing and soil type. In experiment ...
Effects of adding readily available carbon to soil on nitrogen losses from cattle urine patches
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2020)
A lysimeter experiment was carried out to investigate the effects of applying readily available carbon (12 or 24 t sucrose ha−1) to soil on nitrogen (N) losses from cattle urine patches. The carbon (C) was readily available ...
Effect of timing of cattle urine deposition and pasture composition on nitrogen leaching losses
(Wiley on behalf of British Society of Soil Science, 2020-09-20)
A lysimeter experiment using undisturbed monoliths from a stony silt loam soil was carried out to quantify the effects different pasture types on N losses from urine applied to soil on different dates. Three pasture types ...
