May increase or reduce N2O Improved soil fertility, increased N & P


Timing (less critical than inorganic); Application techniques; Storage, processing, and handling (temperature, duration, capacity, cover, etc.); Amount/rate of application (apply at recommended rate to coincide with crop demand) Nitrous oxide flux dependent on degree of maturity/degradation, whether fermented, moisture content Important for C sequestration; Quality and size (C:N ratio, total N), Quantity (weight); Application/incorporation techniques (note the interaction with tillage; priming effect on soil N2O flux mainly with incorporation) avoid wet conditions Give higher nitrous oxide fluxes than dried material., avoid spreading with mineral fertiliser o p o-

Renewable Energy Eco Friendly

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable.
