Alabama A&M University Conservation Tillage and Fertilizer Management Research
Using funds awarded through a NIFA competitive grant, Alabama A&M University scientists are researching conservation tillage and fertilizer management practices to reduce soil emission of methane and nitrous oxide. The Alabama A&M research project will evaluate the efficacy of conservation tillage systems to reduce emissions of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) from agricultural soils receiving poultry litter and inorganic nitrogen fertilizers. This research will also assess and document the effect of poultry litter and inorganic nitrogen fertilizer application methods on emissions of CH4 and N2O from agricultural soils under conventional and no-till tillage systems.
