Suter H of The University of Melbourne and Lam R of The University of Melbourne. Ammonia loss from vegetable systems, Clyde, Victoria, 2014.
This field campaign was conducted at Clyde between March and June 2014. The field study was conducted on two adjacent paddocks (~140 m by 220 m). Chicken manure and standard fertiliser practice was used at both sites. The nitrification inhibitor DMPP was applied one day after manure application. Open-path FTIR was used for NH3 measurment. Closed static chambers were used to measure N2O emission. 15N microplots were used for calculating the recovery of the applied N in the plant and the soil.
