Entry ID: HAU.FYM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This experiment began in 1967 at a site that was originally
shrubland. The project consists of one rotation: Pearl
millet-wheat. Treatments = 1) Absolute control, 2) Farm yard manure
added, 3) N-fertilizer applied, 4) Cultivation without pesticides, 5)
Incorporation of root stubble.

The climatic region of the site is Warm Temperate SubTropical. The
average climatic conditions at the experimental ... View entire text
