Abstract:
An experiment was carried out at a commercial farm near Ollerton, central England on a sandy loam soil using small field plots (10 x 3 m) arranged in a randomised block design with three replicates per treatment. Cattle urine (at 5 L/m2) was applied to grassland in early-June and in mid-September 2011. 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. Following urine application to five 0.36 m2 areas of the plot, measurements of direct nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions were made over c.12 months, using 5 static chambers (1 per 0.36 m2 area, giving a total surface area of 0.8 m2) and analysed by gas chromatography. This dataset is of daily nitrous oxide flux (g N2O-N/ha/d) measurements. Pyrazole derivative = an additive containing two pyrazole derivatives (1H-1,2,4-triazole and 3-methylpyrazole). If the data file is downloaded/opened in excel, dates may appear as dd-mm-yy instead of the standard yy-mm-dd.
