The overall objective of this project was to provide robust evidence over contrasting soil types and climatic regimes of the potential in the UK for nitrification inhibitors (NIs) and fertiliser nitrogen (N) application timing strategies to reduce direct nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions following the application of manufactured N fertiliser, livestock urine and slurry; and to assess their impact on ammonia volatilisation, nitrate leaching (and indirect N2O emissions) and crop N recovery. The data will be used to underpin IPCC Tier 2 emission factors which can be included in future updates in the “Inventory of N2O Emissions from UK Agriculture”.
