Tile-drained field

Five people at a tractor on a field, one of the people standing in a hole in the ground, photo.

The tile-drained field experiments consist of separately-drained plots, each with continuous measurement of discharge and flow-proportional sampling.

The sites are managed by field staff, who also document all field operations and crop and soil sampling. In addition to international journal articles, the experimental results are also published in the Swedish-language report series Ekohydrologi.
