The global abundance of N fertilizer has dramatically increased agricultural productivity. However, when N escapes to the atmosphere as ammonia (NH 3 ) gas, NH 3 loss can cause undesirable effects. In addition to a loss of a valuable resource, it can have negative impacts on air quality, ecosystem productivity, and human health. Animal production is the largest source of NH 3 emission in North America. Improved manure and fertilizer management practices will help reduce volatile losses of this…
