Abstract:
On a commercial farm near Pencaitland, Eastern Scotland (sandy clay loam topsoil texture), direct N2O-N emissions were measured from replicated (x3) plots (3 x 10 m) following spring applications of manufactured nitrogen (N) fertilisers to spring barley. A control treatment was included where no N fertiliser was applied. Ammonium nitrate (AN) fertiliser (34.5% N) was applied at 5 different rates; 40, 80, 120, 160 and 200 kg N/ha, and urea fertiliser (46% N) at a rate of 120 kg N/ha, in two split applications (early-April and late-April). In separate AN and urea treatments, a commercially available nitrification inhibitor was tested; dicyandiamide (DCD) was sprayed at a rate equivalent to 10 kg DCD/ha onto the plots immediately after each N fertiliser application. The N supplied by the DCD was accounted for in the total N application of 120 kg N/ha, which was applied in two splits. Additionally, AN fertiliser was also applied in three equal splits of 40 kg N/ha in early-April, late-April and early-May i.e. ‘little and often’. 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.
