Long-term experiment Dikopshof

Long-term fertilization experiment for field crops

Title: Long-term experiment Dikopshof

Abstract:: The static long-term experiment Dikopshof was established in the year 1904 next to the city of Wesseling as a classical deficiency experiment and is one of the oldest long-term experiments in the world. A five-year crop rotation system (sugar beet, winter wheat, winter rye, clover, potatoe) was used on the experimental area with a total size of 3.67 ha. Each crop was divided into 24 experimental plots (with and without farmyard manure, with and without additional fertilizer, complete fertilizer, without nitrogen, phosphor, potassium or calcium and control)

Person in charge: Dr. Hubert Hüging
