Soil Fertility Experiment (DVI Thyrow/Germany), Long Term Soil Organic Matter Experiment
Entry ID: HUB.IFP.Thyrow

Abstract: This experiment was started in 1938 at a site with a cool temperate
climatic regime. The soil is classified as a Leptic Podzol (FAO).

The rotations in the experiment are slightly different over the years,
and consist of: in 1938-54 2 year rotation potatoes,spring barley;
1955-60 3 year rotation potatoes,spring rye,winter rye; 1961-84 6 year
rotation sugar beet,spring barley,winter ... View entire text
