Entry ID: BAS.ARS.Nahrstoff

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This experiment began in 1938 at a cool temperate site, with average
climatic conditions at the experimental site:

Minimum annual temperature: 4 deg C
Mean annual temperature: 9.9 deg C
Maximum annual temperature: 15 deg C
Minimum annual rainfall: 360 mm
Mean annual rainfall: 545 mm
Maximum annual rainfall: 720 mm

The soil is described as a loamy sand.

The experiment consists of the following land uses and treatments:
6-year rotation (1.winter rye/phacelia, 2.sugar beet, 3.winter
rye/winter oilseed rape, 4.grain maize, 5.winter rye/oil radish,
6.potatoes.) with inorganic fertilizers(nil,NP,NK,PK,N,NPK), or
organic manures.

The measurements made, methodology, and frequency are listed below:

a) Vegetation measurements made and frequency

Yield: Each year
Total dry matter offtake: Each year
Nitrogen content of offtake: Each year
Each year: P2O5,K2O,MgO.

b) Soil sampling

Details of soil sampling method: 1 core/sq m; 0-30 cm depth;
diagonal distribution in each plot; tool:auger.

c) Soil measurements made and frequency

Total carbon: Every 2-3 years
Method of measuring total carbon: After: Springer & Klee (1954).
Total nitrogen: Every 2-3 years.
Method of measuring total nitrogen: See Hoffmann,G (ed) (1991).
Soil bulk density or weight: Occasionally
Method of measuring soil bulk density or weight: An open cylinder
is pressed into the undisturbed soil.
Other nutrients: P2O5,K2O,MgO. See Hoffmann, G (ed) (1991).

d) Details of the meteorological station

Nearest meteorological station to the site: BASF AG Limburgerhof which
is .3 km from the site at coordinates 8deg24min E,
49deg25min N. The meteorological station is manual.

e) Meteorological data available and frequency

Rainfall: Daily
Air temperature: Daily
Soil temperature: Daily at 20 cm depth
Sun hours: Daily
