Effect of nitrapyrin on emission of nitrous oxide from soil fertilized with anhydrous ammonia



Effect of nitrapyrin on emission of nitrous oxide from soil fertilized with anhydrous ammonia



Geophysical Research Letters 8(4): 353-356



Field studies using a chamber technique to measure emissions of nitrous oxide (N2O) showed that the N2O emissions induced by fertilization of soil with anhydrous ammonia (180 kg N ha-1) were markedly reduced by addition of nitrapyrin (2-chloro-6-(trichloromethyl)-pyridine) to this fertilizer. The emission of N2O induced by application of anhydrous ammonia in the fall was reduced 63% by addition of nitrapyrin at the rate of 0.56 kg ha-1.
