Summary
Abstract: This study began in 1885. The area is naturally regenerated woodland
since 1885. Map of 1623 shows the field as arable. Arable crops were
also present 1847-78. The field was left fallow 1879-82. Clover was
grown 1883-85; last cut 1885. Last cultivated 1883. There are
currently no treatments. This was previously an experimental site

Temporal Coverage
Start Date: 1885-01-01
Quality Details of the plots:

Slope: Slight . Shape: Uniform
Details of direction of cultivation: None
Width of Discard Strip around plot: 8 m
Details of homogeneity of the plots: See Jenkinson (1971) p119

Details of replication, randomization and controls

There are at least 0 replicates in the experiment. Replicate samples
from areas previously receiving different P treatments. There are no
statistical tests. Assessment of errors was attempted by Jenkinson
(1971). Data given by Jenkinson (1971), (1992) are mostly repeat
analyses of archived material.
