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

Description
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).
