Long-term soil tillage experiment
In 1996 a long-term experiment was started on a field of the experimental farm Groß-Enzersdorf. It is a 2factorial experiment with (I) soil tillage and (II) crop rotation as factors. The treatments of the factor tillage are (a) conventional tillage (plough), (b) reduced tillage deep, (c) reduced tillage shallow (both cultivator), (d) no tillage or (d) a variable tillage scheme depending on crop and soil condition. The two crop rotations include variable crop sequences according to recent experimental questions. The plot size is 25 x 40 m. The experiment is in a Randomized Complete Block Design with 4 replicates.
