Abstract:
This experiment began in 1967 at a site that was originally shrubland. The project consists of one rotation: Pearl millet-wheat. Treatments = 1) Absolute control, 2) Farm yard manure added, 3) N-fertilizer applied, 4) Cultivation without pesticides, 5) Incorporation of root stubble. The climatic region of the site is Warm Temperate SubTropical. The average climatic conditions at the experimental site Minimum annual temperature: 16.1 deg C Mean annual temperature: 23.8 deg C Maximum annual temperature: 31.5 deg C Minimum annual rainfall: 139.4 mm Mean annual rainfall: 426 mm Maximum annual rainfall: 796.8 mm The soil is described as a Fine loamy aridic ustochrept (USDA). The measurements made, methodology, and frequency are listed below: a) Vegetation measurements made and frequency Total above-ground dry matter: Every season Nitrogen content of offtake: Every 2 years. Phosphorus and potassium offtake in above-ground dry matter every 2 years. b) Soil sampling Time zero soil measurements taken. Samlping depth: 0-15cm, samples not stored, measurements taken: pH, organic C, CaCO3, Available N, P and K. Details of soil sampling method: Method of soil sampling: Auger. Number of cores: 4. Area of plot sampled: Borders of plots not sampled. Distribution of samples: Random. Soil is separated into layers Details of measuring depths and soil layers: Depthwise sampling done at 0-15, 15-30, 30-45 cm every five years. Normally 0-15cm soil is collected every other year. c) Soil measurements made and frequency Total carbon: Every 2 years Method of measuring total carbon: Oxidizable C is determined by wet-digestion method of Walkley and Black (1934) Soil Sci. 37: 29-38. This method is 60-70% efficient. Ammonium nitrogen: Every 5 years Method of measuring ammonium nitrogen: Distilling ammonia by alkaline permanganate method of Subbiah & Asija (1956) Current Science 25: 172-194. Soil bulk density or weight: Every 5 years. Method of measuring soil bulk density or weight: Soil samples are collected with a core sampler and dried to a constant weight. The ratio of dry weight of soil to core volume will give bulk density. Other nutrients: DTPA extractable Zn, Mn, Fe, Cu estimated in 1987-88. Available P and K were estimated at an approximate frequency of 5 years. Other measurements: Plant (grain and straw) samples analysed for N, P & K content. Occasionally, soil samples are analysed for infiltration rate and other physical parameters. d) Details of the meteorological station Nearest meteorological station to the site: Meteorological Laboratory, CCSHAU, Hisar which is 1 km from the site at coordinates 75deg.46min. East, 29deg.11min. North. The meteorological station is manual. e) Meteorological data available and frequency Rainfall: Daily Air temperature: Daily Soil temperature: Daily Wind speed: Daily Sun hours: Daily Relative humidity: Daily This information was compiled for the GCTE-SOMNET Database, Pete Smith, Pete Falloon, David Powlson, and Jo Smith.
