Abstract:
At a grassland site near Rothamsted Research, North Wyke in south-west England (sandy clay loam topsoil texture) small field plots (10 x 3 m) were arranged in a randomised block design with three replicates per treatment. Cattle urine (at 5 L m-2) was applied to grassland in mid-March and in early September 2012. A control treatment was included where no urine was applied. In separate treatments, two commercially available nitrification inhibitors were tested; dicyandiamide (DCD) and an additive containing two pyrazole derivatives (1H-1,2,4-triazole and 3-methylpyrazole) were pre-mixed with the urine prior to application to give application rates of 15 kg/ha and 5 L/ha for the DCD and the pyrazole derivatives, respectively. The urine was collected from lactating dairy cows at Reading University, kept refrigerated at less than 4°C and applied within two days of collection. This dataset contains daily rainfall (mm), daily maximum air temperature (degree Celsius) and daily minimum air temperature (degree Celsius) measured from either the closest meteorological station to the experimental site or from instruments located at the experimental site. If the data file is downloaded/opened in excel, dates may appear as dd-mm-yy instead of the standard yy-mm-dd.
