The Environment Edge: Nitrogen Loss from Agriculture
Feb 21, 2022
This discussion on nitrogen loss to water from agricultural catchments focuses on the different factors that influence how much nitrogen is lost, the seasonality of nitrogen concentration in streams and the difference between “load” and “concentration”.
Did You Know Series - Crop Cover
Dec 2, 2021
'What is the putpose of Catch Crops', you ask? Tillage farmers sow a catch crop purely for the purpose of capturing moisture and nitrogen that would otherwise be lost in the winter months Eddie Burgess from @teagasc was on hand to explain, as part of our #DidYouKnow series. This is part of our AgCredible Did You Know video series, where Eddie Burgess talks about how the environmental benefits of catch crops.
Nutrient Loss in the Closed Period

The results of 4 years research across 5 catchments investigating the seasonality of nutrient loss to rivers is summarised here.

In grassland applied phosphorus accumulates in soil close to the surface. With high rainfall (on heavy or already saturated soils) most of the water will be lost over the surface. In a typical year, eight or ten heavy rain storms will carry over half the P lost to our rivers and lakes. For example, large P losses were recorded during a high rainfall event in January 2021 at our Ballycanew outlet analyser and Edward Burgess, Catchment Specialist explains more.
