Nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions to the atmosphere from grazed pasture can be high, especially from urine-affected areas. When pastoral soils are damaged by animal treading, N2O emissions may increase. In New Zealand, autumn-sown winter forage crops are often grown as a break-crop prior to re-sowing pasture. When these crops are grazed in situ over winter (as is common in New Zealand) there is high risk of soil damage from animal treading as soil moisture contents are often high at this time of… CONTINUE READING
