nitrogen loss

nitrogen loss

The “wasting” of nitrogen in protein by the body. Nitrogen loss in the stool in fasting organisms is obligatory and proportional to the metabolic rate; nitrogen excreted by the kidneys reflects nitrogen intake.

Controlled release urea releases nitrogen slowly and thus reduces nitrogen loss through leaching and volatilization compared with common urea [22].
Given the results, the highest obtained values of nitrogen loss was attributed to the agricultural land-use.
Application of NBPT with urea could improve N use efficiency, because it can reduce nitrogen loss via ammonia volatilization from urea (Rawluk et al.
Nitrogen loss from the stored manure varied from 25 to 41% of the total Nitrogen [14].
Bentonite clay decreases nitrogen loss by 10-15%, improves plant moisture content and enhances the biological activity and nitrification of the soil, thus increasing the number of microorganisms therein.
Research has shown that if just 10 percent of a field is converted to prairie strips, nitrogen loss will be reduced by 80 percent, phosphorus loss will be cut by 90 percent, and sediment loss will drop by 95 percent.
The new Anhydrous Ammonia Coulter allows the anhydrous ammonia to be applied pre-plant in the spring, with minimum ground disturbance, reducing nitrogen loss and allowing for RTK GPS precision placement.
This result indicates the water extraction of resin components to be relatively rapid, with the %N removed almost independent of extraction time, and resin hydrolysis (Dunky 1998) an unlikely predominant cause for nitrogen loss during extraction.
Generally, important urea transformations in flooded paddy fields include urea hydrolysis, volatilization, nitrification and denitrification, while the hydrological pathways of nitrogen loss mainly involve surface runoff and vertical leaching [6, 11, 12].
When conditions conducive to nitrogen loss occur, applying the right source at the right rate, time and place is even more important.
