Agricultural soil is a major source of nitrous oxide (N2O), and the application of nitrogen and soil drainage are important factors affecting N2O emissions. This study tested the use of polymer-coated urea (PCU) and polymer-coated urea with the nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide (PCUD) as potential mitigation options for N2O emissions in an imperfectly(More)
Piper claussenianum inflorescences crude methanol extract was tested for hypoglycemic effect in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The blood glucose levels of rats treated with methanol extract were reduced from 318.4±28.1 mg/dl before treatment to 174.2±38.3 mg/dl after 12 days of treatment (P<0.05). Phytochemical studies were carried out on(More)
The use of N fertilizers for agricultural production acts as a sources of atmospheric $$\hbox {N}_2\hbox {O}$$ N 2 O . Fertilizer induced $$\hbox {N}_2\hbox {O}$$ N 2 O emission considerably varies in accordance with environmental factors. We conducted a $$\hbox {N}_2\hbox {O}$$ N 2 O flux measurement campaign across 10 different experimental sites with(More)
Water management practices, such as midseason drainage (MD) and intermittent irrigation, are effective in reducing methane (CH4) emission from irrigated rice paddies. In a previous study in which two-year field experiments were conducted at nine sites across Japan, prolonged MD was found to reduce the seasonal total CH4 emission by 30.5 ± 6.7 % (mean ± 95 %(More)
