Entry ID: SLU.Orja

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This experiment began in 1957 at a site that was cultivated for
several centuries before the start of the experiment. It has had no
manure (and no cattle) since 1912. The geology at the site is glacial
till about 30 m thick.

The experiment consists of 2 crop rotations: I. Milk
production: Barley,grass/clover,winter wheat,sugar beet; straw/beet
tops removed, beet receives FYM. II. No cattle: ... View entire text
