Field 11 Kuivurilohko

Basic information about the field

Area: 10,27 ha
Soil type: Varies on different parts of the block. Rich humus silty clay, with different consistency and coarseness of silt.

On the edges of the field, there is lighter soil, where e.g. sugar beet used to be grown. In the middle of the block, more challenging clay is delaying sowing if block is cultivated as one piece. Once in ten years the timing is good.
