Brief description

The aims of agricultural nitrogen (N) management are to
provide sufficient N to plants to maximize crop growth and
yield, whilst minimising negative environmental impacts such as
nitrous oxide (N2O), a potent greenhouse gas (GHG). The flux
of this gas from agricultural soils is correlated to the amount
of N fertilizer applied, as well as soil and environmental
conditions. Reducing the amount of synthetic fertiliser inputs
and promoting the storage of organic carbon through the use of
organic soil amendments may be an effective pathway to reduce
GHG emissions and improve N use efficiency. A fully randomized
block design was established on a black vertosol in a
subtropical horticultural cropping system to estimate the
efficiency and environmental impact of different types of raw
verses composted manure in combination with reduced synthetic
fertilizer inputs. The treatments consisted of all combinations
of raw and composted cattle feedlot (FM) and chicken manure
(CM) with synthetic nitrogen at commercial rates (100%) or
reduced rates (100% - N[org amend]). High temporal resolution
gas sampling (sub-daily) was conducted using automated gas
chambers on the CM treatment and manual gas sampling technique
(weekly) on the FM will be used to quantify the N2O dynamic
emission. Complementary soil nitrogen data will give a better
understanding of the effects of organic amendments in relation
to N2O emissions.
