NAL Agricultural Thesaurus and Glossary

The NAL Agricultural Thesaurus (NALT) was first released by the National Agricultural Library in 2002, with in-depth coverage of agriculture, biology, and related disciplines. It contains over 135,000 terms, including 63,000 cross references, and is arranged into 17 subject categories which are used to…

Data from: Sporobolus stapfianus: Insights into desiccation tolerance in the resurrection grasses from linking transcriptomics to metabolomics

Non-targeted metabolomics, combined with transcriptomics via a NimbleGen array platform, are used to study how gene expression and metabolite profiles can be linked to generate a more detailed mechanistic appreciation of the cellular response to both desiccation and rehydration in the C4 resurrection grass, Sporobolus stapfianus Gandoger, as a member of a group of important forage grasses.

USDA/ARS Kimberly, ID - Furrow Infiltration and Erosion Data, 1998 to 2016

The data are derived from the field monitoring of irrigated furrows from 1998 to 2016 at the research farm of the USDA/ARS-Northwest Irrigation and Water Research Laboratory in Kimberly, Idaho, USA (south-central Idaho). For each monitored furrow, irrigation inflow rates, outflow rates, and sediment concentrations were recorded periodically during the irrigation. A gated pipe conveyed irrigation water across the plots at the head, or inflow-end, of the furrows and adjustable spigots supplied water to each irrigated furrow.

Automated Water Supply Model (AWSM)

Automated Water Supply Model (AWSM) was developed at the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Boise, ID, to streamline the workflow used to forecast the water supply of multiple water basins.
