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 ...
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 ...
Effects of 15N-labelled crop residues and management practices on subsequent winter wheat yields, nitrogen benefits and recovery under field conditions
(Cambridge University Press, 2001-02)
Nitrogen-15 enriched ammonium sulphate was applied to micro-plots in a field in which two leguminous (white clover and peas) and two non-leguminous (ryegrass and winter wheat) crops were grown to produce ¹⁵N-labelled crop ...
Lime and soil moisture effects on nitrous oxide emissions from a urine patch
(Soil Science Society of America, 2004)
Liming has been mooted as a mitigation option for lowering soil N₂O emissions. This study investigated the effect of soil pH and soil water content on N₂O and N₂ emissions following the addition of synthetic urine (500 kg ...
