Modeling Nitrogen Dynamics under Maize on Ferralsols in Western Africa

  title={Modeling Nitrogen Dynamics under Maize on Ferralsols in Western Africa},
  author={Jean M. Sogbedji and Harold van Es and Kofi L. Agbeko},
  journal={Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems},
Mathematical models may be applied to simulate nitrogen (N) dynamics under different types of soil and environmental conditions to assess fertilizer N needs or to predict nitrate-N (NO3–N) potential impact on water quality. The research version of LEACHMN was evaluated using data from lysimeters and field experiments conducted at the University of Lomé Research Farm in Togo, West Africa. The model was calibrated for the mineralization, nitrification, denitrification and volatilization rate… CONTINUE READING
