The overall objective of this project was to generate robust nitrous oxide emission factors for predicting losses following application of different nitrogen fertiliser materials (ammonium nitrate, urea, urea+urease inhibitor Agrotain, urea ammonium nitrate solution and urea ammonium sulphate) in a wide range of cropping, soil type and climatic situations within the UK. This project was part of a wider research programme (NT26) which also included measurements of nitrogen release patterns, nitrogen loss pathways (ammonia emissions and spring nitrate leaching) and agronomic performance (crop yield and quality). The research output was used to assess the performance of the alternative nitrogen fertiliser materials, to validate ammonia emission factors and to provide practical information for farmers.
