Site and Surroundings — the Julius-Kühn-Field in Halle
The long-term fertilization trials in Halle are located in the south of the federal state Saxony-Anhalt (in German Sachsen-Anhalt, Fig. 1) at the Julius-Kühn-Field, named after its founder. The site lies at the eastern edge of the city (Fig. 2) and serves as a teaching and experimental station of the Institute of Agricultural and Nutritional Sciences of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg (see chapter 1.4). The Eternal Rye trial, laid out in 1878 by Julius KüHN, is located in the south-west part, and the long-term fertilization trials, founded by Karl Schmalfuß in 1949, are located in the centre of the Julius-Kühn-Field (Fig. 2).
