Reducing gaseous nitrogen losses from high temperature agricultural systems

Principal Investigator: Darrel Jenerette, UC Riverside – Botany and Plant Sciences,

951-827-7113, darrel.jenerette@ucr.edu

Evaluate fertilization and irrigation practices that limit gaseous losses of reactive N from dominant crop types in the high temperature San Joaquin and Imperial Valleys of California. Acquire field data that can be used to improve regional scale models of N cycling and develop a GHG offset methodology.
