The effectiveness of nitrification inhibitor technology to improve the sustainability of agriculture
(NZ Institute of Primary Industry Management (NZIPIM), 2009-12)
As reported widely in the general media and also in recent editions of Primary Industry Management, there is increasing recognition of the need to improve the sustainability of New Zealand agricultural systems. Fonterra’s ...
Potential pasture nitrogen concentrations and uptake from autumn or spring applied cow urine and DCD under field conditions
Nitrogen (N) cycling and losses in grazed grassland are strongly driven by urine N deposition by grazing ruminants. The objective of this study was to quantify pasture N concentrations, yield and N uptake following autumn ...
Nitrate leaching and nitrous oxide emissions related to bacteria and not to archaea in nitrogen rich grassland soils
(International Union of Soil Sciences, 2010-08)
The oxidation of ammonia (NH₃) to nitrate (NO₃⁻) is a key process in the global nitrogen (N) cycle which has major ecological and environmental implications both in influencing nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions and NO₃⁻ leaching. ...
A synergistic mitigation technology for nitrate leaching and nitrous oxide emissions for pastoral agriculture
Report on a mitigation technology which is synergistic for the reduction of both NO3 leaching and N2O emissions and also for the improvement of pasture yield.
Accounting for the utilization of a N₂O mitigation tool in the IPCC inventory methodology for agricultural soils
(Springer Netherlands, 2007)
In this study we review recent studies where dicyandiamide was used as a nitrification inhibitor to reduce both N₂O emissions from urine patches and nitrate leaching from pasture systems, and which led to the development ...
The effect of DCD on nitrogen losses from sheep urine patches applied to lysimeters in autumn
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2010)
The intensification of modern pastoral agriculture has increased the risk of environmental degradation. The use of nitrification inhibitor technology has been shown to reduce nitrate (NO₃ ⁻) leaching losses and nitrous ...
