Calculation of nitrous oxide emission from agriculture in the Netherlands : update of emission factors and leaching fraction

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

A study was conducted to update the NO2 emission factors for nitrogen (N) fertilizer and animal manures applied to soils, based on results of Dutch experiments, and to derive a country specific methodology to calculate nitrate leachting using a leaching fraction (FracLEACH). It is recommended to use different emission factors for livestock manure applied to grassland and arbale land and to upgrade the emission factors for peat soil in the Dutch protocol
