Article title

Estimation of the effectiveness of nbpt for limiting ammonia emission from urea based on the field experiments


Title variants

Languages of publication



The effectiveness of the ammonia emission reduction from NBPT-stabilized urea was investigated in 2011 during a field experiment on a grassland plot fertilized with a one-time dose of 60 kg N/ha. The obtained reduction coefficient of ammonia emission equaled 73% and 39-51% relative to urea without the inhibitor and ammonium nitrate, respectively.
W doświadczeniu polowym wykonanym późną wiosną w 2011 roku badano efektywność redukcji emisji amoniaku z mocznika stabilizowanego NBPT, który wykorzystywano do nawożenia użytków zielonych w jednorazowej dawce 60 kg N/ha. Uzyskany współczynnik redukcji emisji amoniaku w stosunku do mocznika bez inhibitora wynosił 73%, zaś w stosunku do saletry amonowej 39-51%.
