Abstract

The annual dynamics of N2O emissions from a tea field in southern subtropical China was observed in situ weekly in 2010 using a static closed chamber - gas chromatography (GC) method for three treatments: non-fertilised (CK), conventional (CON) and rice straw mulching (SM). The annual N2O emissions for CK, CON and SM were 7.1, 17.2 and 16.7 kg N/ha/year, respectively. The N2O emission factors for the CON and SM treatments were estimated as 2.23% and 1.91% of the total fertiliser N applied, respectively. Rice straw mulching exhibited a potential to reduce the N2O emissions from the tea field, but not statistically significant (P = 0.82). The daily N2O fluxes were positively correlated with th..
