SLU Agricultural Long-Term Experiments

SLU Agricultural Long-Term Experiments are used to study how crops, crop rotation and cropping practices affect crop production, crop quality and environmental factors in the long term. We welcome collaboration with other researchers using data or archived samples from these experiments, or taking new samples. Information from the experiments may also be useful for advisors and others who are interested in Swedish agriculture.

Many effects of crops, crop rotations and cropping practices used within agriculture only become visible in the long term. This applies for example to certain effects on soil fertility, weed flora, ecological balances, nutrient losses and soil microbiology. The SLU Agricultural Long-Term Experiments are a unique resource which is available to researchers within all disciplines. Contact the subject coordinator if you would like to use the SLU Agricultural Long-Term Experiments for your own research or have any other questions. Please begin by reading the guidelines. Once you have reached an agreement with the coordinator you can fill in the application form.
