Potential inhibition of urine patch nitrous oxide emissions by Plantago lanceolata and its metabolite aucubin
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2017-12-12)
Plantain (Plantago lanceolata L.), a forage used in grazed pastures, contains active secondary metabolites that could potentially inhibit nitrification, a key step in nitrous oxide (N₂O) production from grazing ruminant ...
Fungal and bacterial contributions to codenitrification emissions of N₂O and N₂ following urea deposition to soil
Grazed pastures contribute significantly to anthropogenic emissions of N₂O but the respective contributions of archaea, bacteria and fungi to codenitrification in such systems is unresolved. This study examined the relative ...
Potential for forage diet manipulation in New Zealand pasture ecosystems to mitigate ruminant urine derived N₂O emissions: a review
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2016)
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions from agricultural soils account for more than 10% of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock urine deposition drives N₂O losses from these soils. It has been speculated that non-urea ...
Urea treatment decouples intrinsic pH control over N₂O emissions in soils
Soil N₂O emission potential is commonly investigated under idealized denitrifying conditions (e.g. nitrate-N supplied and anaerobic soil), with pH commonly identified as a major determinant of N₂O emission potential. ...
