Summary
Abstract: Collection of data for this data set began in 1967. The Data are
collected at a cool temperate site which had mixed arable cropping for
many years. The crops were: springbarley 1967-1983; winter barley
1983-1992; 1992 to present grass. This project is currently suspended
until further notice.

The soil at the site is described as follows:
