Soil treatment data from Sourhope field experiment site, Scotland, 1999-2002 [NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme]

This data set details the range of treatments applied to experimental plots at a field site at Sourhope, Scotland, between 1999 and 2004. The data can be used in conjunction with other experimental data sets from the NERC Soil Biodiversity Thematic Programme site as an explanatory variable. The NERC Soil Biodiversity Thematic Programme was established in 1999 and was centred upon the intensive study of a large field experiment located at the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute (now the James Hutton Institute) farm at Sourhope in the Scottish Borders (Grid reference: NT8545019630). During the experiment, the site was monitored to assess changes in above-ground biomass production (productivity), species composition and relative abundance (diversity).
