Sally Wilkinson; Anna Weston; David Marks

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2019, Pages 13-30

http://dx.doi.org/10.22077/jhpr.2018.1995.1036

Abstract
  Purpose: Supplying plants with nitrogen in ammonium nitrate- or urea-based fertiliser is wasteful: much is degraded before acquisition, releasing environmental pollutants. Preventing urea degradation can reduce pollution and improve crop nitrogen use efficiency. We investigate benefits to ureic stabilisation, ...  Read More
