Short summary
Intensive vegetable fields suffered very low N use efficiency and very high N2O emissions as compared to other ecosystems. We have demonstrated that two contrasting biochars affected gaseous reactive nitrogen intensity (N2O, NO, NH3, yield) across four major vegetable soils in China. Biochar affects gaseous Nr or yield largely depending on soil types. Both wheat straw biochar (Bw) and swine manure biochar (Bm) decreased GNI with Bw mitigated gaseous Nr, whereas Bm improved yield.
