Title: Soil moisture data: AC0101, Devon, 2007

At Rothamsted Research - North Wyke in south west England nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions were monitored following spring ammonium nitrate fertiliser applications at 6 different rates; 0 (i.e. untreated control), 70, 90, 130, 160 and 200 kg N ha-1. Up to two separate fertiliser applications were made in order to reach the target application rate. There were 3 replicate plots (4 x 12 m) of each treatment arranged in a randomised block design. The plots were established on a winter wheat crop sown the previous autumn, on a coarse sandy loam soil. This dataset contains measurements of soil moisture as gravimetric soil moisture (%) taken on the same days as nitrous oxide emissions measurements were made. NA = not applicable. The first two measurements are 'background' measurements i.e. before any treatments were applied. Gravimetric moisture values are the mean of the measurements across all treatments. If the data file is downloaded/opened in excel, dates may appear as dd-mm-yy instead of the standard yy-mm-dd.
