Growth and Yield Data for the Bushland, Texas, Soybean Datasets

    This dataset consists of growth and yield data for soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] grown for seed at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 1995, 2003, 2004, 2010 and 2019. In the 1995, 2003, 2004, and 2010 seasons, soybean was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. In 2019, soybean was grown on four large, precision weighing lysimeters and their surrounding and contiguous 4.4 ha square fields. The entire datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data. This dataset focuses on the soybean growth and yield data.

    The Bushland, Texas Soybean Datasets

      This parent dataset links to five seasons of datasets on soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] grown for seed at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 1995, 2003, 2004, 2010, and 2019. In 1995, 2003, 2004, and 2010, soybean was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. In 2019, soybean was grown on four large, precision weighing lysimeters and on the 4.44 ha square fields surrounding each lysimeter. The datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data.

      Data and code from: Synergistic soil, land use, and climate influences on wind erosion on the Colorado Plateau: Implications for management

        This dataset includes code and data to recreate analysis from the manuscript "Nauman, T.W., Munson, S.M., Dhital, S, Webb, N.P., Duniway, M.C. Synergistic soil, land use, and climate influences on wind erosion on the Colorado Plateau: Implications for managemen". In prep for STOTEN. This includes R statistical code, aeolian monitoring data and associated soil, land use, and climate explanatory data for each site, and a raster map showing areas modeled to have more sediment transport.

        The Bushland, Texas Sunflower Datasets

          This parent dataset links to two seasons of datasets on sunflower grown for seed at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 2009, and 2011. Sunflower was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. The datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data.

          Data from: Late-season corn stalk nitrate measurements across the US Midwest from 2006 to 2018

            This dataset is based on field-guided corn stalk nitrate test surveys across the US Midwest from 2006 to 2018. In total, measurements from 10,675 corn fields were collected which represents 32,025 corn stalk nitrate measurements. Nitrogen form (commonly referred to as N source10) and the total N rate applied, US state, year of harvest, and climatic conditions are included for each site-year (trial location by growing season combination). When available, previous crop, manure source, tillage, and timing of N application are also included.

            TERRA-REF Season 4 and 6 Sorghum phenotypes and agronomic metadata in BrAPI format: ARDN Products

              ARDN (Agricultural Research Data Network) annotations for "TERRA-REF Season 4 and 6 Sorghum phenotypes and agronomic metadata in BrAPI format". The ARDN project ([https://data.nal.usda.gov/ardn](https://data.nal.usda.gov/ardn)) is a network of datasets harmonized and aggregated using the ICASA vocabulary, as recommended by USDA NAL ([https://data.nal.usda.gov/data-dictionary-examples](https://data.nal.usda.gov/data-dictionary-examples)) and described in detail here: [www.tinyurl.com/icasa-mvl](www.tinyurl.com/icasa-mvl) This data represents a small subset of the TERRA-REF release available on Dryad (LeBauer et al 2020), including harvested biomass for each cultivar, plot location, planting date, harvest date, fertilizer application, genotype / accession names and metadata, and additional agronomic management metadata for a population of Sorghum bicolor evaluated over two growing seasons. The data can be accessed through a BrAPI-compliant endpoint at terraref.org/brapi. This dataset is a snapshot of the TERRA-REF BrAPI endpoint contents, representing the minimum data and metadata required to run a crop model.

              Data from: Not just crop or forest: building an integrated land cover map for agricultural and natural areas (spatial files)

                To address the need for maps that characterize detailed land cover, including both agricultural and natural habitats, we combined two national datasets of land cover, the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools (LANDFIRE) National Vegetation Classification (NVC) and United States Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service (USDA-NASS) Cropland Data Layer (CDL). Our workflow leveraged strengths of the NVC and the CDL to produce annual land-use rasters for 2012-2021.
