Learning from long term experiments - what do they teach us?

R Norton, R Perris and R Armstrong

Longerenong rotation 1 (LR1) gives us essentially the same message as other long-term agronomic experiments. The message is that rotations can be sustained and productive provided the challenges of diseases, weeds, soil structure, and nutrient replacement are met.
