We measured lower dissolved N2O and higher denitrifier genes abundance in the groundwater samples collected from reducing (anoxic) groundwaters sites, as compared with the groundwater samples collected from non-reducing (oxic) groundwater sites. This highlights the potential of microbial measurements (denitrifier genes abundance) as a proxy marker, in combination with the groundwater chemistry measurements, to measure and map benign 'complete' denitrification across NZ agricultural catchments.
