How does the application of different nitrification inhibitors affect nitrous oxide emissions and nitrate leaching from cow urine in grazed pastures?
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2012-03)
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) is a potent greenhouse gas, and nitrate (NO₃⁻) is a water contaminant. In grazed grassland, the major source of both NO₃⁻ leaching and N₂O emissions is nitrogen (N) deposited in animal excreta, particularly ...
Effect of different land use and land use change on ammonia oxidiser abundance and N₂O emissions
In recent years, there has been a major expansion of dairy farming in New Zealand, largely as a result of land use change from forestry and sheep farming to dairy farming. Possible impacts of different land uses and land ...
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 soil aggregate size and dicyandiamide on N₂O emissions and ammonia oxidizer abundance in a grazed pasture soil
(Wiley on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2014-06)
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) is a potent greenhouse gas, which is mainly produced from agricultural soils. Ammonia oxidation is the rate-determining step in N₂O production, and the process is carried out by ammonia oxidizers, ...
Dicyandiamide (DCD) effect on nitrous oxide emissions, nitrate leaching and pasture yield in Canterbury, New Zealand
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2014)
© 2014 The Royal Society of New Zealand. A 3-year study was carried out in Canterbury, New Zealand, to determine the effect of a nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide (DCD) on N₂O emissions, nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching and ...
