A field experiment with maize for silage was conducted to assess the effects of mineral nitrogen (N) fertilizer application rates (0, 50, 100, 150 kg ha−1), slurry application rates (0, 20, 40 m3 ha−1) and the use of an understorey with perennial ryegrass on nitrate (NO3)-leaching losses. Leachate was collected using ceramic suction cups. Soil mineral N (SMN) was determined to a depth of 90 cm at the end of the growing season. Higher levels of N supply with mineral fertilizer or slurry resulted… CONTINUE READING
