Ex-vivo cow rumen fluid fermentation: Changes in microbial populations and fermentation products with different forages
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-07-09)
This study investigated the effects of three forage treatments [herbal plantain (PL), ryegrass-white clover pasture (RW) and root crop fodder beet (FB)] on ex-vivo rumen fluid fermentations. Quantitative real-time Polymerase ...
Effects of trampling of a wet dairy pasture soil on nitrous oxide emissions and the efficacy of a nitrification inhibitor, dicyandiamide.
Nitrous oxide (N2O) emitted from urine patches in grazed dairy pastures is a major contributor to the total greenhouse gas emissions in New Zealand. The nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide (DCD) has been shown to reduce ...
Inhibition of ammonia oxidisers to control nitrification rate under simulated winter dairy forage grazing conditions: An incubation study
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, 2013)
The microbial process of nitrification plays a key role within the soil nitrogen cycle. Nitrification is the process where ammonia is oxidised to nitrite and then to nitrate and this process can have major negative ...
