Short summary
New nitrification inhibitor CP (chlorinated pyridine) application caused a significant decrease in yield-scaled N2O emissions in an intensively managed vegetable field, while biochar amendment had no significant influence on cumulative N2O emissions but significantly decreased soil pH and yield-scaled N2O emissions. Overall, taking environmental and economic benefits into consideration, CP application in the vegetable field was the best procedure for reducing the yield-scaled N2O emissions.
