Title: Manure application dates: AC0111, Devon, 2010

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 two application timings: spring (mid-March 2010) and summer (mid-June 2010). At each timing three replicate control plots, receiving no slurry, were also established on both the drained and undrained treatments. This dataset is of manure application rates (i.e. total nitrogen applied) and dates applied. At each application timing, slurry was applied over two consecutive days. NA = not applicable. If the data file is downloaded/opened in excel, dates may appear as dd-mm-yy instead of the standard yy-mm-dd.
