Within each of these Case Study Sites, a focal site (local scale) has been identified which is an existing long-term experiment (LTE), monitoring site or Lighthouse Farm. These sites provide long term data on management practices, measurements of a range of soil properties and previous research, focusing on one of the three land uses. They showcase best practices for their different land uses.
