The Long-Term Fertilization Trials at the Julius-Kühn-Field in Halle


The long-term fertilization trials in Halle consist of:
  1. a)

    The Eternal Rye trial (Ewiger Roggenbau) which was started in 1878 by Julius Kühn (see chapter 2.2). It comprises an area of 0.6 ha and is the second oldest long-term fertilization trial of the world, following the wheat experiment at Rothamsted (UK).

  2. b)
    Long-term fertilization trials laid out by Karl Schmalfuß in 1949. They originally covered an area of 4.8 ha divided into the following trials (lay out plan see Fig. 12):
    The experiments Field B and Field E have been terminated meanwhile, and on the residual fields the experimental size has been greatly reduced: Field A to 108, Field C to 120, Field D to 72 and Field F to 108 plots. In 1970 the originally extensive growth of vegetables was ceased. Details can be found in Chapter 2.3 and Merbach et al. (1999b, 2000).
  3. c)

    The long-term trial investigating soil development from loess, which was started in 1948 by Karl Schmalfuß on the campus of the department of Plant Nutrition in Halle, Adam-Kuckhoff-Straße 17b (for details see Chapter 3 and Beschow et al. 2000).
