Nitrogen fluxes in silage maize production: relationship between nitrogen content at silage maturity and nitrate concentration in soil leachate



Nitrogen fluxes in silage maize production: relationship between nitrogen content at silage maturity and nitrate concentration in soil leachate



Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems 73(1): 59-74



A challenge with respect to environmental soundness of agricultural production is the development of suitable indicators, which support an improved understanding and measurement of agricultural activities on environmental quality. The objective of this study was to investigate whether N concentration (Nc) of silage maize at silage maturity, a routinely recorded quality parameter, can serve as an indicator of nitrate concentration in the soil leachate (NO<sub>3</sub>C).
