Ammonia volatilization from a flooded rice field fertilized with amended urea materials

  author={Harshand S Chauhan and Beena Mishra},
  journal={Fertilizer research},
The extent of ammonia volatilization from prilled urea, urea supergranule and urea amended with neem seed cake, shell-lac and dicyandiamide was studied in a field experiment on flooded rice. The ammonia loss was measured by the closed acid trap method. The collected ammonia was highest from unamended prilled urea, accounting for 19 to 20 per cent of the applied N in 1983 and 20 to 24 per cent of the applied N in 1984. Coating of urea prills was either coaltar soaked neem seed cake or shell-lac… CONTINUE READING
