Abstract/Contents:Discusses the loss of nitrogen fertilizer through ammonia volatilization, a chemical process that transforms nitrogen fertilizer into a gas and releases it into the atmosphere. Presents the conditions for ammonia volatilization and factors which promote it such as thatch, warm temperatures, soil moisture, soil texture and buffering capacity, rainfall or irrigation, and form of nitrogen used. Management practices to minimize loss are given.
