Research on arable sandy loam and silty clay loam soils on 4° slopes in England has shown that tramlines (i.e. the unseeded wheeling areas used to facilitate spraying operations in cereal crops) can represent the most important pathway for phosphorus and sediment loss from moderately sloping fields. Detailed monitoring over the October–March period in winters 2005–2006 and 2006–2007 included event-based sampling of surface runoff, suspended and particulate sediment, and dissolved and particulate phosphorus from hillslope segments established in a randomized block design with 4 replicates of each treatment at each of 2 sites on lighter and heavier soils. Results at Hattons site (Staffordshire) and at Rosemaund (Herefordshire). Discussion about agri-environment policy measures at farm and catchment
