- ... A field study was conducted over 9 months to measure the short-term effect of green waste compost (GWC) application on crop yields, nitrogen (N) availability and emissions of the greenhouse gas, nitrous oxide (N2O). The GWC was applied at 0, 2 or 4 t/C ha as GWC with either 0 or 150 kg N/ha fertiliser. The hypothesis was that GWC would lower the soils mineral N content, via microbial immobilisatio ...
