Agricultural crop production depends upon judicious use of nitrogen (N) fertilizers to sustain yields. Globally, the N recovery rate by crops is about 60%, meaning that the rest of the N applied to agroecosystems is transformed to forms that are not available for crop uptake or are lost to the...

Perennial ryegrass diploids with elevated concentrations of water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC), commonly termed 'high-sugar grasses' (HSGs), have been promoted as a tool for increasing the efficiency of the use of protein (nitrogen (N)) in the rumen and thus offering scope for increasing milk...

Black pepper is cultivated in a wide range of soils with varying pH and fertility. Ideal condition requires a friable soil rich in humus and essential plant nutrients, with good drainage. Among the nutrients consumed by black pepper, N uptake is the highest followed by K and Ca and the magnitude of ...

Protein digestion and absorption and endogenous nitrogen availability in pigs are reviewed. Modification of proteins during digestion and absorption of their hydrolysis products have been studied by measuring appearance of nutrients in portal blood. Compared with the composition of ingested...

The nitrogen content of feeds has been traditionally expressed as a statement of 'crude protein' (N × 6.25). This approach is useful as a simple statement of the overall level of nitrogen in a feed, but the nutritional needs of the various classes of farm livestock must be stated in a more...
