Sampling and measurement protocols for field experiments assessing the performance of legume-supported cropping systems

Posted: 21.06.2021
This report sets out the protocols for field measurements which were used throughout the Legume Futures research project. In some cases, more than one method is described. This is because the best method to use may be defined by the site characteristics, and also by the availability of staff, instrumentation and financial resources. This guide does not seek to define a common methodology for all variables. It provides guidance and support for those who may be new to some of these measurements. It has taken guidance from protocols followed in other European projects such as NitroEurope. This guide is used in Legume Futures to support partners in developing standard operating procedures for all measurements carried out on sites. It was written as an internal project document and is published here as part of the project’s efforts to provide full access to methods and to support other researchers in this area.
