Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at North Wyke, Devon, UK, using 1 ha hydrologically isolated grassland plots on a clay loam soil (38% clay) overlaying an impermeable clay subsoil (the Rowden facility). Half of the plots are drained, with tile drains at 40 m spacing and 85 cm depth, with permeable backfill to within 30 cm of the surface, and with secondary mole drainage at 40 cm depth and 2 m spacing. Cattle slurry was applied at a target rate of 50 m3 ha-1 using a trailing shoe slurry spreader to each of three replicate drained and undrained plots at three times of year: autumn (October 2010), spring (early February 2011) and summer (late June 2011). There were, however, only two replicate plots for the spring cattle slurry undrained treatment. At each application timing three replicate control plots, receiving no slurry, were also established on both the drained and undrained treatments. This dataset contains daily rainfall (mm) and daily mean air temperature (degree Celsius) measured from either the closest meteorological station to the experimental site or from instruments located at the experimental site. ND = not determined. If the data file is downloaded/opened in excel, dates may appear as dd-mm-yy instead of the standard yy-mm-dd.
