Site Description
Former UK ECN site that has now ceased operating as a research & monitoring site. Data are available from 1993 to 2013. A heavy clayland site, representative of 2 million hectares of similar soils in lowland England, where agricultural experiments were conducted for over 50 years. The farm system was based on autumn sown combinable crops and grassland. Hedges and ditches contributed to biological diversity.
