[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This experiment was initiated in 1965 at a site that has been in
arable use for a very long time. The land use in this experiment
consists of a cropping sequence: Sugar beet, Spring oats, Winter
wheat, with treatments: 3 levels of N, 2 levels of P, 2 levels of K,
Na and FYM.

The climatic region of the site is classified as cool temperate. The
average climatic conditions at the experimental site ... View entire text
