Summary
Abstract: This long term experiment began in 1972. The experimental site is a
tropical area, with a minimum annual temperature of 5.9 deg C, maximum
annual temperature of 42.8 deg C, and mean annual rainfall of 1100 mm.
The soil is characterized as Kheri series of fine montmorillonitic
hyperthermic family of Typic Chromusterts (USDA). The soil properties
are as follows:
