Carbon dioxide exchange was quantified in maize–soybean agroecosystems employing year-round tower eddy covariance flux systems and measurements of soil C stocks, CO2fluxes from the soil surface, plant biomass, and litter decomposition. Measurements were made in three cropping systems: (a) irrigated continuous maize, (b) irrigated maize–soybean rotation, and (c) rainfed maize–soybean rotation during 2001–2004. Because of… More

Field experiments were conducted to determine optimal time during the day for N2O flux determination and to evaluate the effects of wheel traffic and soil parameters on N2O fluxes following urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) injection and summer UAN fertigations. The experiments were located on silty clay loam soils under no-till irrigated continuous corn of eastern… More
