- Quantifying N field-loss and field-scale N balance of forage production system under different nutrient and cropping management scenarios.
Specific research questions to be addressed by this project are:
1. Will integrated innovative nutrient management practice reduce N2O emission and NO3 leaching from forage production system of a dairy farm.
2. Will integrated innovative cropping management practice increase N recovery by crops from forage production system of a dairy farm.
3. Will integrated innovative nutrient and cropping management practices improve N use efficiency and reduce N surplus in forage production system?
