In this, the second Section of the Final Report, all the background data collected in the course of the Nitrate Leaching - Farm Scale study (2000 – LS –M2) are tabulated. These include nitrogen (N) inputs, concentrations and loads in fertiliser and organic manures in Appendices 1, 2, 3. The number of half-day grazing by cows in 2001-2004; herbage-on-offer dry matter (DM) and N yields plus crude protein concentrations are included for 2001-2003 in Appendices 4, 5. Analysis of variance of the carbon (C), N concentrations and C/N ratios in soil samples, for one sampling date (December 2003), in all plots is shown in Appendix 6. Appendices 7, 8, 9 show nitrate nitrogen (NO3-N) and ammonium nitrogen (NH4-N) concentrations for all the ceramic cups in all plots over the three drainage seasons together with weekly effective rainfall (drainage) amounts.
