  • Effect of N-(n-butyl) Thiophosphoric Triamide and 3,4 Dimethylpyrazole Phosphate on gaseous emissions from grasslands under different soil water contents

    The intensification of grassland systems is leading to serious environmental risks due to the large input of nitrogen (N) in fertilizers and the subsequent gaseous losses. Addition of nitrification inhibitors (NI) or urease activity inhibitors to fertilizers could reduce these losses to the atmosphere. In the present study, the effects of the nitrification inhibitor 3,4-dimethylpyrazole phosphate ...

  • Pasture Trial – Waroona (2014/2015) - Case Study

    At Waroona in the Peel region of Western Australia in 2014, 12 by 1m square wire cattle cages were placed at random to evaluate the effects of Hibrix pasture treatment combined with 50kg/ha of super phosphate versus the growers standard fertiliser usage of 100kg/ha of super phosphate. The Hibrix treated plots produced significantly higher amounts of dry matter without any reduction in pasture ...

  • Precise fertilizer management - Grass analysis by X-ray fluorescence spectrometry

    A significant proportion of agricultural land in Europe is grass for livestock grazing. For example, in the UK as a whole, the combined area of grassland is around 6,997,000 hectares, nearly 38% of the total agricultural area [2]. In NorthernIreland, where clay soils and a temperate climate are particularly suitable for grass production, this percentage is much higher. Here about 95% of farmland ...

  • The localization of agriculture

    In the United States, there has been a surge of interest in eating fresh local foods, corresponding with mounting concerns about the climate effects of consuming food from distant places and about the obesity and other health problems associated with junk food diets. This is reflected in the rise in urban gardening, school gardening, and farmers’ markets. With the fast-growing local foods ...
