Dolgoprudnuy Agrochemical Experiment Station: Efficiency of ballast and concentrated forms of mineral fertilizers

This experiment has been added by the GLTEN Curators using existing published sources.
Local identifier
Experiment 4
Years operational
1933—2011
Objective
To study effects of fertilizers.
Description
This experiment is recorded in SOMNET (2001), but based on Prokopyeva et al (2000), the Dolgoprudnuy appear to have ended in 2011. Complete details of the experiment design have not been found from the published literature.

History
The site was natural forest until 1925. No fertilizers were applied before the experiment.
Soil type
retisol
Soil description
Soil is an Albic Retisol (Loamic, Aric and Cutanic) formed on glaciofluvial cover loam.
