Direct exports of phosphorus from fertilizers applied to grazed pastures
(Crop Science Society of America with the American Society of Agronomy and the Soil Science Society of America, 2019-08-21)
Since its discovery in 1669, phosphorus (P) in the form of fertilizer has become an essential input for many agroecosystems. By introducing a concentrated P source, fertilizers increase short-term P export potential soon ...
Environmental parameters affecting the concentration of iodine in New Zealand pasture
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America & Soil Science of America, 2019-08-21)
Iodine (I) is an essential trace element commonly deficient in agricultural systems. Whereas there is much information on I in food crops, there is a lacuna of knowledge on the environmental factors that affect pasture I ...
Dissolved organic nitrogen : an overlooked pathway of nitrogen loss from agricultural systems?
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2009)
Conventional wisdom postulates that leaching losses of N from agriculture systems are dominated by NO₃⁻. Although the export of dissolved organic nitrogen (DON) into the groundwater has been recognized for more than 100 ...
Ammonia, methane, and nitrous oxide emission from pig slurry applied to a pasture in New Zealand
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2002)
Much animal manure is being applied to small land areas close to animal confinements, resulting in environmental degradation. This paper reports a study on the emissions of ammonia (NH₃), methane (CH₄), and nitrous oxide ...
