Abstract:
At Rothamsted Research - North Wyke near Okehampton, south-west England (clay loam topsoil texture), direct N2O-N emissions were measured from replicated (x3) plots (6 m x 12 m) arranged in a randomised block design. Dairy cattle slurry (c.30 m3/ha) and cattle FYM (25 t/ha) were applied to permanent grassland in autumn (late-September) and spring (mid-April). The cattle slurry was applied using watering cans simulating trailing shoe and surface broadcast application and the solid manure was spread by hand. In two separate treatments, the commercially available nitrification inhibitor - dicyandiamide (DCD) was applied by knapsack sprayer to the sward after slurry application by surface broadcast and trailing shoe to give a DCD application rate of 10 kg /ha (6.5 kg N/ha). An untreated control treatment was included where no manure was applied. Following manure application, measurements of direct N2O-N were made over c.12 months, using 5 static chambers (0.8 m2 total surface area) per plot and analysed by gas chromatography. This dataset is of daily nitrous oxide flux (g N2O-N/ha/d) measurements. ND = not determined. If the data file is downloaded/opened in excel, dates may appear as dd-mm-yy instead of the standard yy-mm-dd.
