Highlights•52 days incubation of organically amended soil under denitrifying conditions.•Direct N2 and N2O measurements by GC, N2O isotopomer analysis by IRMS.•Anaerobic digestate from food waste led to lower N2O emission than dairy slurry.•Organic fertilizers enhanced N2O reduction to N2 compared to untreated soil.•Up to 40% of N2O came from nitrification, despite conditions favoring denitrification.
