Can N2O emissions be reduced in winter wheat by split additions of nitrogen fertiliser? ASSIST 2020

Investigating whether splitting total nitrogen fertiliser application can improve nitrogen use efficiency in a winter wheat crop. Can splitting total N addition into 2, 4 or 6 application doses minimise excess soil N leaching, volatilisation and gaseous losses?

NB: This dataset is currently being QC’d and is expected to become available in Q1 2022.

Data acquisition was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) under research programme NE/N018125/1 ASSIST – Achieving Sustainable Agricultural Systems ASSIST is an initiative jointly supported by NERC and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
