GEOGLAM (GEO Global Agricultural Monitoring) Crop Assessment Tool

    The Group on Earth Observations, a partnership of governments and international organizations, developed the Global Agricultural Monitoring (GEOGLAM) initiative in response to the growing calls for improved agricultural information. The goal of GEOGLAM is to strengthen the international community’s capacity to produce and disseminate relevant, timely and accurate forecasts of agricultural production at national, regional and global scales through the use of Earth Observations (EO), which include satellite and ground-based observations. This initiative is designed to build on existing agricultural monitoring programs and initiatives at national, regional and global levels and to enhance and strengthen them through international networking, operationally focused research, and data/method sharing.

    GrainGenes, the genome database for small-grain crops

      GrainGenes is a popular repository for information about genetic maps, mapping probes and primers, genes, alleles and QTLs for the following crops: wheat, barley, rye and oat. Documentation includes such data as primer sequences, polymorphism descriptions, genotype and trait scoring data, experimental protocols used, and photographs of marker polymorphisms, disease symptoms and mutant phenotypes. These data, curated with the help of many members of the research community, are integrated with sequence and bibliographic records selected from external databases and results of BLAST searches of the ESTs.

      Sustainable Corn CAP Research Data (USDA-NIFA Award No. 2011-68002-30190)

        The Sustainable Corn CAP (Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project: Climate Change, Mitigation, and Adaptation in Corn-based Cropping Systems) was a multi-state transdisciplinary project supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (Award No. 2011-68002-30190). Research experiments were located through the U.S. Corn Belt and examined farm-level adaptation practices for corn-based cropping systems to current and predicted impacts of climate change.

        Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Tools

          Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) datasets are stored in the harmonized AgMIP Crop Experiment (ACE) format. Translation tools available for download at [http://tools.agmip.org/](http://tools.agmip.org/) allow re-formatting of the data to model-specific formats for various crop simulation models.

          Unit process data for Rapeseed production in the U.S. wheat belt

            Unit processes represent wheat-wheat-fallow and wheat-wheat-rapeseed crop production simulations that illustrate using the IPCC (Tier 1) method for calculating changes in soil C and the roundtable on sustainable biomaterials (RSB) method for estimating N2O emissions in different locations for the use in modeling the crop production portion of the HRJ lifecycle. Data are archived in a SimaPro .csv file, which can be imported into various life cycle assessment modeling tools.

              Eastern Potato Variety Development Database, (NE1231)

                This is an interactive potato variety database that allows researchers and end-users to access and obtain potato variety trial results in one centralized site. It was developed primarily for scientists interested in potato variety development, growers, and allied industry members. The database is populated with the results of potato variety trials conducted in eight states (Florida, Maine, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia) and two Canadian provinces (Prince Edward Island and Quebec).
