Abstract:
Pig slurry was applied by trailing shoe and surface broadcasting at five rates, viz: 20, 35, 50, 65 and 80 m3/ha, using a purpose built small-plot applicator to grassland, on a loamy sand soil in autumn 2005. There were 3 replicate plots (5 x 12m) of each application treatment arranged in a randomised block design. Ammonia emissions were measured from each treatment for 7 days after application using wind tunnels. Direct nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions were measured from the 35m3/ha slurry rate for about 12 months after application from both application techniques and an untreated control, using the static chamber technique (five chambers per plot). Nitrous oxide samples were analysed using gas chromatography. Crop (fresh weight and dry matter) yields and nitrogen offtakes were measured at harvest. Where measured, this dataset contains: annual nitrous oxide emissions (kg N2O-N/ha/year), annual nitrous oxide emission factors (% of total nitrogen applied), year experiment started, site location, crop type, previous crop type, soil texture, soil clay content, soil dry bulk density, soil organic carbon content, soil pH, total rainfall during the experimental period, nitrogen source, experimental treatments, application timing, application method, block number, total nitrogen applied, readily available nitrogen (i.e. if present, the sum of ammonium-N, nitrate-N and uric acid-N) applied, cumulative ammonia emission, cumulative nitrate leaching loss, crop yield, crop total nitrogen offtake, crop grain nitrogen offtake, manure dry matter, manure pH, manure organic carbon, manure total nitrogen content, manure ammonium-N applied, manure nitrate-N applied, manure uric acid-N applied and time to incorporation (i.e. the length of time between application and incorporation). ND = not determined. NA = not applicable. The N2O emission factors are calculated using annual cumulative N2O values to 15 decimal places, however the annual cumulative N2O and emission factor values have been reported to 2 decimal places.
