dc.description.abstractPasture-based livestock production systems have a relatively large requirement for nitrogen (N) input compared to other food production systems. These inputs may consist of organic N, mineral N or biologically-fixed N. Of all N that enters these systems, only a small proportion (15-40%) is converted to saleable agricultural products. The remaining N (surplus N) is largely unaccounted for and can be either lost from the system through a range of pathways including gaseous N losses to the atmosphere as nitrous oxide (N2O), ammonia (NH3), and dinitrogen (N2), N losses to groundwater or N may be immobilised in soil organic matter, all of which have differing environmental consequences.
