He is focused on dietary nitrogen efficiency and reduction of nitrogen excretion from dairy production systems through the understanding of milk protein synthesis regulation by amino acids. With that knowledge he wants to improve current nutrient requirement systems for lactating dairy cows. A better ...
Consider getting a second opinion from an independent source when evaluating your nitrogen recommendations. Find a consultant trained in ISNT, ADAPT-N or other nitrogen evaluation-based systems and compare recommendations with your current source. Ask about local plot-based calibrations to ...
Nitrogen is essential to marine life and cycles throughout the ocean in a delicately balanced system. Living organisms -- especially marine plants called phytoplankton -- require nitrogen in processes such as photosynthesis. In turn, phytoplankton growth takes up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and ...

"Corn that's nitrogen deficient at the beginning of the growing season gives up yield potential," he says. "Nitrogen-deficient corn in the late reproductive stages costs actual yield." From emergence to V8, corn plants consume less than 2 lb. of N per acre per day. While N uptake is not much because plants ...
Hundreds of thousands of residents are served with water that's unsafe to drink, and all of us live under seasonal clouds ozone and particle pollution in the air. Water and air problems are regulated separately, but one contaminant bridges both domains. This story examines why nitrogen is such a persistent ...
For centuries, the prevailing science has indicated that all of the nitrogen on Earth available to plants comes from the atmosphere. But a study from the University of California, Davis, indicates that more than a quarter comes from Earth's bedrock. The study, to be published April 6 in the journal Science, ...
A team of scientists they have solved the mystery of Earth's “missing nitrogen”, a discovery with significant implications for climate change. Nitrogen is vital for plant growth, so its availability controls the amount of greenery that can exist across the planet. The prevailing idea among scientists is that all the ...
A new collaborative study, published in Nature Communications, determined that turtle ants (Cephalotes) are able to supplement their low-nitrogen diets by passing helpful bacteria from older ants to younger ones through anal secretions. Once this is done, the now-internalized microbes (tiny bacteria) ...
The technology, developed through University of Minnesota research with support from the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, detects nitrogen stress in corn using computer vision techniques that recognize characteristic features on plant leaves. The frequency and appearance of these features ...

Nitrogen fertilizers (applied as nitrate, NO3-, or ammonium, NH4+) improve the amount of grain produced per acre, but nitrogen runoff and volatilization pollute the water and the air. Production of nitrogen fertilizers also uses fossil fuels. The major grain crops (such as rice and wheat) use only about 40% of ...

Liquid nitrogen is one of those substances that was always viewed with a certain degree of curiosity by most people. What is it, why does it seem like it's just floating around and how come it freezes everything around it, are questions that naturally pop into people's heads. The reason why it is so mysterious ...
Nitrogen is an essential element for all living organisms, as it is used to make the organic building blocks of life: DNA, RNA, and protein. For legumes, obtaining (or "fixing") nitrogen via nodules comes at a cost, because the plant needs to expend energy and resources to sustain the bacteria. Owing to this ...

One frozen dessert craze is making room for another, more recent frozen dessert craze at 4092 18th Street in the Castro as Chocolate Chair, which sells liquid nitrogen infused sweets, reportedly moves into the recently closed Easy Breezy Frozen Yogurt space. It's the circle of life, and it moves us all.
"Hairy vetch releases almost all available nitrogen in the first four weeks after it's terminated," says Cook. That's before the major time of nitrogen uptake by corn, which is around week eight after planting. "So, terminating hairy vetch too early could cause losses of nitrogen before the corn crop can get to it.".
Volatilization: This happens most commonly when nitrogen, such as granular urea is broadcast or surface applied. If moisture doesn't come along within a couple days after application to move the nitrogen into the soil, nitrogen can begin to be released to the atmosphere. Research in this area shows that ...

In tropical ecosystems like the Congolese forests, nitrogen can often act as a limiting nutrient -- a naturally occurring element whose scarcity may curb biological growth. When surpluses of a limiting nutrient are pumped into an ecosystem, it can stimulate and accelerate growth in a selection of enterprising ...
One of the most important practices that any forage producer can incorporate into their program is adding legumes to grass pastures and hayfields.

ORLEANS — The ongoing town project to test the use of oysters to remove nitrogen from pond water has won an innovation award from the Massachusetts Municipal Association. The pilot project at Lonnie's Pond was one of four municipal projects statewide recognized with the Kenneth E. Pickard ...
“Jointing also marks the beginning of rapid nitrogen uptake by the plant which is used to build new leaves, stem, and the developing grain head. The nitrogen stored in these plant parts will be used to fill the grain later in the season, and the plant is dependent on this stored nitrogen to complete grain fill.
Farmers could slash their nitrogen use and even increase crop yields in the future by using a seed dressing that infuses plants with nitrogen-producing bacteria. Called N-Fix, the method is being developed by a company called Azotic Technologies after a breakthrough by researchers at the University of ...
Spring barley growers should aim to apply high levels of nitrogen to their crops this coming season despite achieving disappointing yields last year. Edward Downing, crop nutrition technical manager at advisory group Frontier, says he stands by this advice despite recognising it was almost universally too ...
Nitrogen-based synthetic fertilizer forms the backbone of the world food supply, but its manufacture requires a tremendous amount of energy. Now, computer modeling at Princeton University points to a method that could drastically cut the energy needed by using sunlight in the manufacturing process.
Nitrogen-fixing bacteria are the chief means by which nitrogen gas in the air is changed into a form that plants and animals can use. Roughly 10 percent of these nitrogen-fixing microorganisms contain the genetic code for manufacturing a back-up enzyme, called iron iron-only nitrogenase, to do their job.
The concentration of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), a toxic gaseous pollutant, substantially rose in Delhi in 2017, despite a fall in diesel consumption, according to data from the six National Air Quality Monitoring (NAMP) stations in the city.
