The effect of alternative forage species and gibberellic acid on nitrate leaching
(Lincoln University, 2017-02-24)
Nitrogen (N) leaching from soil is a significant concern for intensively grazed forage-based systems because it can cause a decline in water quality. Urine patches are the main source of N leaching in these systems. In New ...
The fate of nitrogen in an animal urine patch as affected by urine nitrogen loading rate and the nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide
(Lincoln University, 2014)
The animal urine patch is the main source of nitrogen (N) loss from agricultural grazed pasture systems. Losses include emissions of nitrous oxide (N₂O), a potent greenhouse gas, and leaching of nitrate (NO3-) into ...
