The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Nutrient Data Laboratory (NDL), in collaboration with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, National Pork Board, American Lamb Board, and meat scientists at selected universities, has conducted several research studies designed to update and expand nutrient data on retail meat cuts in the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR). These studies have provided current and accurate estimates of data to update SR, and the study results have been incorporated into data sets that can be used for nutrient labeling. NDL has developed these data sets, presented in an easy-to-use table format.
This file contains data on race, ethnicity, and gender of U.S. farm and ranch operators collected by the 2007 Census of Agriculture.
NASS Data Visualization provides a dynamic web query interface supporting searches by Commodity (e.g. Cotton, Corn, Farms & Land, Grapefruit, Hogs, Oranges, Soybeans, Wheat), Statistic type (automatically refreshed based upon choice of Commodity - e.g. Inventory, Head, Acres Planted, Acres Harvested, Production, Yield) to generate chart, table, and map visualizations by year (2001-2016), as well as a link to download the resulting data in CSV format compatible for updating databases and spreadsheets.
The Quick Stats Database is the most comprehensive tool for accessing agricultural data published by the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). It allows you to customize your query by commodity, location, or time period. You can then visualize the data on a map, manipulate and export the results as an output file compatible for updating databases and spreadsheets, or save a link for future use. Quick Stats contains official published aggregate estimates related to U.S. agricultural production. County level data are also available via Quick Stats.
Long Term Agroecosystem Research Network (LTAR) Meteorological Station Data on the Central Plains Experimental Range (CPER)
Provisional 15- minute Meteorological data collected on the Central Plains Experimental Range according to concept of operations created for the LTAR Network, NP215
The USDA-ARS Southwest Watershed Research Center (SWRC) operates the Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed (WGEW) in southeastern Arizona as an outdoor laboratory for studying semiarid rangeland hydrologic, ecosystem, climate, and erosion processes.
Since its establishment in 1953, the SWRC in Tucson, Arizona, has collected, processed, managed,…
The SWRC operates the Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed (WGEW) in southeastern Arizona as an outdoor laboratory for studying semiarid rangeland hydrologic, ecosystem, climate, and erosion processes.
WGEW is currently contributing meteorological data from 4 stations to the NAL data repository.
A Year-round stationary camera from a fixed position overlooking sagebrush rangeland dominated by Wyoming Big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata ssp. Wyomingensis). Color and infrared images are taken every 30 minutes between 10 am and 2 pm Mountain Standard Time. The camera points north and incorporates a…
This product system represents the poultry meat produced for human consumption as a result of producing one broiler. Both types of live weight poultry are at the farm gate, ready for transport to the processing plant, although not necessarily at the same farm. It includes the fraction of a spent hen attributable to the production of one broiler.
The periderm (skin) and stele (flesh) of sweet potato storage roots were measured using a Konica Minolta Chroma Meter, and data were recorded using the CIE 1976 L*a*b* and CIE L*C*h* color spaces. Data parameters presented are lightness (L*), red-green coordinate (a*), yellow-blue coordinate (b*), color intensity or chroma (C*), and hue angle (H*). Also included in this data set are percentage dry matter and root densities as these data are correlated to color values.
