Park Grass Hay Experiment, Long Term Soil Organic Matter Study
Entry ID: IACR.ParkGrass

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This experiment began in 1856 at a cool temperate grassland site that
was probably grazed for several centuries before the experiment
started. A uniformity trial was carried out for several years before
the experiment started. The soil at the site is silty clay loam
overlying chalk.

The land use: Grass cut twice, 1st cut made into hay. Treatments: Main
treatments include no N, NH4-N, NH3-N, FYM ... View entire text
