Puch Long Term Cropping / Soil Organic Matter Experiment
Entry ID: BLBP.Puch

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This experiment began in 1953 at a cool temperate site in Germany.
The rotations and treatments in the experiment are as follows:

Bare fallow with repeated grubbing and skim ploughing; continuous
potato with NPK; continuous potato with NPK and organic manure;
continuous wheat with NPK and straw incorporation and a 6 year
rotation of summer barley, oat, potato, red clover, summer wheat and
winter ... View entire text
