Organic matter amendments to soil can reduce nitrate leaching losses from livestock urine under simulated fodder beet grazing
(Elsevier Masson, 2019-02-15)
This research tested the hypothesis that incorporation of Carbon-Rich Organic Matter Amendments (CROMA) into bare soil after winter forage grazing would immobilise urinary-nitrogen (N) and reduce nitrate-N (NO₃⁻-N) leaching ...
Effectiveness of the nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide and biochar to reduce nitrous oxide emissions
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of The Royal Society of New Zealand, 2016)
Animal urine from grazing animals is responsible for the majority of New Zealand’s nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions. A field lysimeter study was conducted to determine the ability of the combination of the nitrification ...
