A field-based comparison of ammonia emissions from six Irish soil types following urea fertiliser application

lysimeter unit at Teagasc, Johnstown Castle Research Centre, County Wexford, Ireland (52°180’N, 6°300’W; 62 m above sea level). The 30-yr mean annual precipitation and air temperature at the site are 1,037.5 mm and 10.4 °C, respectively. The establishment of the lysimeter unit is described in full by Ryan and Fanning (1996 ). The lysimeter unit consisted of replicated (n = 9) undisturbed monoliths of soils (diameter: 0.6 m; depth: 1 m) encased in rigid fibreglass cylinders, which were collected from six grassland sites across the Republic of Ireland in 1990. The soils

The interactive effects of fertiliser nitrogen with dung and urine on nitrous oxide emissions in grassland

3800 gas chromatograph (Agilent Inc., UK) coupled to a 63Ni electron capture detector (ECD) and Combi-Pal auto-sampler (CTC Analysis, Switzerland) and Porapack Q 80/100 mesh packed column (Sigma Aldrich, UK). For each sample run, a calibration curve was used. There were five calibration standards included with N 2 O concentrations of 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 5.0, 10.0 ppm, which were in the expected range of the sample N 2 O concentrations (Argo International, UK). The chamber N 2 O-N flux was calculated according to Eq. (1): Chamber N 2 O-N flux = (the slope of the line
