Nov 01, 2002· Nitrate-N Available for Leaching (NAL). The Nitrate-N Available for Leaching (NAL) index (Shaffer et al., 1991) estimates the mass of [NO.sub.3]-N available to leach from the soil (on a monthly or annual basis). The index takes into account the sources and sinks of [NO.sub.3]-N over the time period, using the following equation:

Reducing nitrate leaching with cover crops | AHDB

To determine the role of cover crops in reducing nitrate leaching losses across a rotation. Essex & Suffolk Water analysed water collected from land drains in 2017/2018 and showed that cover crops improve water quality. There is evidence that cover crops reduce nitrate leaching, but their benefits across the rotation are still not clear.

If we add nitrate and ammonium values together, it is equal to 100 ppm nitrogen (60 ppm + 40 ppm), which is also the fertilizer application rate. If we take the ratio N-P-K, then the ratio using the above numbers is 100-50-100. Divide each of the numbers by 5 and we have a ratio of 20-10-20, which is the accurate analysis of the fertilizer.
