- ... Nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions from agricultural land are often estimated by measuring changes in N₂O concentrations over a given period in the headspace of a gas‐sampling chamber covering a specific soil area. This technique is particularly challenging in tall growing row crops such as maize (Zea mays L.), to which farmers regularly apply fertilizer banded below the seeds to ensure good crop devel ...
