The effect of urinary nitrogen loading rate and a nitrification inhibitor on nitrous oxide emissions from a temperate grassland soil
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-12)
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions associated with urine nitrogen (N) deposition during grazing are a major component of greenhouse gas emissions from domestic livestock. The present study investigated the relationship between ...
Influence of plant growth and root architecture of Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) and tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) on N recovery during winter
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2015-12)
© 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. Nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching is an environmental and health concern. In grazed pasture systems, NO₃⁻ leaching primarily occurs beneath animal urine patch areas due to high nitrogen (N) loading and ...
Measuring excreta patch distribution in grazed pasture through low-cost image analysis
(Wiley on behalf of the British Grassland Society and the European Grassland Federation, 2013-09)
Nutrient losses from grazed pasture are an important non-point source of water pollution. The distribution of animal urine patches on pasture is an important factor in determining nitrate losses and influencing pasture ...
