About This Site

The Farm Platform Data Portal contains data for the Farm Platform at North Wyke in Devon and makes this available to both Rothamsted staff and the wider research community. The Farm Platform is globally unique in that it can provide access to a range of in situ state-of-the-art instrumentation in hydrologically isolated catchments to better address key issues in sustainable agriculture.

Use Our Data

As a National Capability funded by the BBSRC, the data collected on the Farm Platform are made publicly available.

The Farm Platform provides three farming systems in farmlets, each consisting of five component catchments comprising approx. 21 ha in total per farmlet. Each farmlet is managed using alternative approaches to livestock production from grassland and measurements on water, air and soil are also recorded. Much of this data has a high (15 min) temporal resolution, such as water flow and water chemistry data measured at a flume for each of the 15 catchments, which can comprise either single or multiple fields.
