Abstract

Approximately 42% of the Dutch agricultural land is drained using tile drains. Of all Dutch soil types peat soils are responsible for the highest emission of nitrous oxide per unit of surface for agricultural land. The emission of nitrous oxide is characterized by its high spatial variability, to which the presence of tile drains may contribute. The objective of this study was to quantify the spatial variability due to drainage of peat soil on grassland
