Summary
Abstract: The Lancaster Rotation, Wisconsin, legume cereal rotation began in
1967. The area is characterized by rolling to hilly landscapes, with
soil developed in loess deposits of variable thickness over bedrock
materials. The climatic region is cool temperate. The average
climatic conditions at the experimental site are:
Minimum annual temperature: 2.3 deg C
Mean annual temperature: 7.8 deg C
Maximum ... View entire text

Quality There are at least 2 replicates in the experiment.
The experiment has a randomized plot design. It is a split plot design.
The 21 crop sequence-phase combinations were each grown annually in a
6.1 x 36.6 m main plot. These main plots were divided into four equal
subplots for the N treatments. Thus the annual experimental design is a
split-plot where the main plots are in a randomised complete block
design with two blocks (replicates).
There are control plots described as follows:
Control plots are thos in monoculture (continuous corn) receiving a zero
N rate. Several peer reviewed publications have resulted from
this research.
