Inhibitors for volatilization of urea (Spanish)

The 2006 IPCC calculation methodology estimates direct N2O emissions from Crop residues, and indirect (by atmospheric deposition) from volatilization Of the synthetic fertilizers applied to the soil. Volatilization of nitrogen fertilizers
Varies according to their degree of incorporation to the soil, the temperature and Humidity and The type of fertilizer used.

However, and in parallel with the type of nitrogen fertilizer used, there are also Inhibitors of the action of the enzyme urease in the soil, which delay the hydrolysis of urea and Decreases the percentage of volatilization (Grant, 2004; Carmona et al., 1990), minimizing the Losses of nitrogen.
