The efficacy of good practice to prevent long-term leaching losses of phosphorus from an irrigated dairy farm
Phosphorus (P) can be leached from intensive land uses, including grazed dairy farming. There is some evidence to suggest that P-leaching can enrich groundwater, especially where fertiliser or farm dairy effluent P (FDE) ...
The spatial coverage of dairy cattle urine patches in an intensively grazed pasture system
(Cambridge University Press, 2010-12-23)
Accurate field data on the paddock area affected by cow urine depositions are critical to the estimation and modelling of nitrogen (N) losses and N management in grazed pasture systems. A new technique using survey-grade ...
Using organic phosphorus to sustain pasture productivity: A perspective
Organic phosphorus (P) in grazed pastures/grasslands could sustain production systems that historically relied on inorganic P fertiliser. Interactions between inorganic P, plants and soils have been studied extensively. ...
Soil gas diffusivity controls N₂O and N₂ emissions and their ratio
(Soil Science Society of America, 2016-05-06)
Knowledge of soil biological and physical interactions with respect to N₂O and N₂ fluxes is essential to ensure that agricultural land management is environmentally and economically sustainable. This study determined how ...
Density effects on soil-water characteristics, soil-gas diffusivity, and emissions of N₂O and N₂ from a re-packed pasture soil
(Soil Science Society of America, 2019-02)
Density-induced soil structural changes may potentially alter both soil total porosity and soil pore size distribution, and thus change the soil’s water retention characteristics, gas diffusion and transport properties, ...
Unweathered wood biochar impact on nitrous oxide emissions from a bovine-urine-amended pasture soil
(Soil Science Society of America, 2010)
Low-temperature pyrolysis of biomass produces a product known as biochar. The incorporation of this material into the soil has been advocated as a C sequestration method. Biochar also has the potential to influence the ...
