Meckenheim II, Long Term Soil Organic Matter Study, Germany
Entry ID: ACI.Meckenheim

Abstract: This experiment began in 1958 at a site that has been in arable crops
for more than 100 years. The climate of the site is cool temperate,
with mean annual temperature of 9.1 deg. C, and Mean annual rainfall
of 598mm. The experiment consists of Cereals only with either
inorganic fertilizers only (2 types) or inorganic fertilizers (2
types) plus straw incorporation, in a block design,
replicated 4 ... View entire text
