Long Term Slurry on Grassland Experiment, Soil Organic Matter Network, Northern Ireland
Entry ID: DARD.Slurry

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This experiment was initiated in 1970 at a site that was originally
temperate deciduous woodland. It then was an estate farm until the
agricultural institute founded in 1926. The area was cut grassland,
predominantly Lolium perenne L. sward immediately before the
experiment was established.

The experiment consists of a single land-use, cut grassland (3 cuts
