EXTENSION TO NT1407:Effective utilisation of animal manures in fertilising forage - NT1418

See also NT1407
The objective of this project is to take additional measurements on existing trial sites (NT1407) to extend the knowledge of the longer term effect of slurry/FYM applications. This will be achieved by 1. Soil samples for mineral N analysis will be taken on a plot basis 2. Every plot will be measured at 0-30, 30-60 and 60-90cm soil layers. This will generate 144 soil samples for nitrate-N and ammonium-N determination per trial (720 for all 5 trials).
