Askov Research Station has access to more than 25 ha of land with soil type JB5 (clay). The main task is to carry out trials with animal manure and soil carbon.
Part of the land is occupied by long-term fertilisation trials that were established in 1894 and have continued uninterrupted since then. The trials have achieved international status because they are the only ones in the world in which variable application of nutrients from commercial fertiliser and animal manure have been compared for a period of more than 120 years.
We also have semifield facilities with approximately 220 lysimeter units. A biochar project was established in one of the lysimeters in 2015.
