Author: Brandon Schlautman, Spencer Barriball, Claudia Ciotir, Sterling Herron, and Allison J. Miller
Publication: Sustainability

Abstract: Annual cereal and legume grain production is dependent on inorganic nitrogen (N) and other fertilizers inputs to resupply nutrients lost as harvested grain, via soil erosion/runoff, and by other natural…
