Using nitrogen : what is best practice?
(South Island Dairy Event (SIDE), 2005-06)
Feed shortages occur in spring because the rate of pasture growth is below the cow demand. Spring pasture growth rate is slow in the South Island because the soil temperature is low and the rate of nitrogen (N) supply from ...
Clean and green with 'eco-n'
(South Island Dairy Event (SIDE)., 2004-06)
Lincoln University and Ravensdown Fertiliser Co-operative have developed a new soil treatment technology, called 'eco-n' technology, that can reduce the environmental impacts of dairy farming and at the same time help ...
Improved nitrogen management with eco-n nitrification inhibitor : an example of "growing for good"
(New Zealand Large Herds Association, 2005-04)
The recent report by the New Zealand Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, called "Growing for Good", highlighted the adverse impacts that nitrate leaching can have on water quality. It called for a 'redesigning ...
Reducing nitrate leaching losses from a Taupo pumice soil using a nitrification inhibitor eco-n
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2007-11)
The decline in water quality in Lake Taupo has been attributed to nitrogen (N) leaching from surrounding land areas. Pastoral agriculture has been identified as a significant contributor to this N transfer to the lake ...
Effect of soil moisture status and animal treading on N₂O emissions and the effectiveness of a nitrification inhibitor mitigation technology
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) is a potent greenhouse gas with a long term global warming potential about 298 times that of carbon dioxide (CO₂). In grazed grassland, most of the N₂O is emitted from nitrogen (N) excreted by the grazing ...
