Basic information about the field

Area: 9,11 ha
Soil type: Humus rich sandy loam

Diverse field that is usually cultivated in two growing field plots. Issues with water economy in the lowest part. Soil type puts restrictions for plant choices. Very particular on cultivation times. There is a small forest batch in the middle of the field. A cusp at the east end of the field is natural protection field.

Rehabilitation measures: Drainage to lowest part of the field on summer 2018.
