Reducing N losses in corn systems

Reducing N losses in corn systems

A new study from the University of Guelph looks at how management approaches can reduce N2O emissions at the provincial level, while considering trade-offs with other forms of N loss, such as leaching and ammonia volatilization. As study lead and University of Guelph professor, Claudia Wagner-Riddle, notes, N2O losses are hugely affected by interactions between the weather, management decisions and soil. » Learn more
