Agricultural sustainability is compromised by nitrogen (N) losses caused by soil microbial activity. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) produced as consequence of nitrification and denitrification processes in soils. Nitrification inhibitors (NI) as 3,4-dimethylpyrazole-succinic acid (DMPSA) are useful tools to reduce these N loss...
Article
Nitrogen (N) applied with fertilizers is not efficiently used in agriculture. In the soil, this N is transformed into different compounds by means of several biological processes. As a result, there is a negative economic and environmental impact due to water contamination, via nitrate (NO3−) leaching, and greenhouse gasses emission, via nitrous ox...
Article
In agriculture, the applied nitrogen (N) can be lost in the environment in different forms because of microbial transformations. It is of special concern the nitrate (NO3⁻) leaching and the nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, due to their negative environmental impacts. Nitrification inhibitors (NIs) based on dimethylpyrazole (DMP) are applied worldwide...
Article
Urea fertilization is a widely spread source of nitrogen (N) for agriculture because of its easy accessibility. However, its use is highly inefficient, since a large amount of the applied N is lost to the environment mainly in the form of ammonia (NH3) volatilization, causing serious environmental and economic damages. Although there are simple str...

Full-text available
Nitrogen (N) input from fertilizers modifies the properties of agricultural soils as well as bacterial community diversity, composition and relationships. This can lead to negative impacts such as the deterioration of system multifunctionality, whose maintenance is critical to normal nutrient cycling. Synthetic nitrification inhibitors (NIs) can be...
Article
Full-text available
Agriculture has increased the release of reactive nitrogen to the environment due to crops' low nitrogen-use efficiency (NUE) after the application of nitrogen-fertilisers. Practices like the use of stabilized-fertilisers with nitrification inhibitors such as DMPP (3,4-dimethylpyrazole phosphate) have been adopted to reduce nitrogen losses. Otherwi...
Article
Full-text available
Background The increasing demand for food production has led to a tenfold increase in nitrogen (N) fertilizer use since the Green Revolution. Nowadays, agricultural soils have been turned into high-nitrifying environments that increase N pollution. To decrease N losses, synthetic nitrification inhibitors (SNIs) such as 3,4-dimethylpyrazole phosphat...
Article
Nitrification inhibitors (NIs) are useful tools to reduce nitrogen (N) losses derived from fertilization in agriculture. However, it remains unclear whether a future climate scenario with elevated CO2 could affect NIs efficiency. Thus, the objective of this work was to study whether the increase of atmospheric CO2 concentration would affect the eff...
Article
Enhanced-efficiency nitrogen (N) fertilizers, such as those containing nitrification or urease inhibitors, can mitigate the carbon (C) footprint linked to the production of bioenergy crops through a reduction in direct nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions and indirect N2O losses. These indirect emissions are derived from ammonia (NH3) volatilization, whic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this work, we evaluate, in a winter wheat crop, the effect of two different land managements (CT and NT) and the use of the NI 3,4-dimethylpyrazolesuccinic acid (DMPSA) on N2O emissions. Under humid Mediterranean conditions, the addition of DMPSA to fertilizer allows to keep N2O emissions at the same level as in the unfertilized treatment in b...
