Long Term Agroecosystem Research Overview
- Agroecosystem productivity is sustainably enhanced by the development and application of new technologies
- Mitigation and adaptation of agroecosystems to climate change is improved by more accurate predictions of resource responses to system drivers
- Stronger linkages to other long-term research networks improves conservation and environmental quality in agricultural landscapes
- The socio-economic viability of, and opportunities for, rural communities are enhanced through educational outreach by LTAR scientists and collaborators
LTAR Research Sites
Data from the following LTAR sites are presented. They are related to topics such as agricultural sustainability, climate change, ecosystem services, and natural resource conservation at the watershed or landscape scale.
Main Cropping System Experiment at the Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI (1988 to 2015)
This dataset includes information about the LTER main site treatments, agronomic practices carried out on the treatments and approved site use requests.
Baseline Spatial Variability Study at the Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI (1988 to 1988)
A spatial variability study conducted across the LTER Main Site area (45 ha) at KBS prior to dividing the site into 1-ha experimental plots.
Soil Moisture on the Main Cropping System Experiment at the Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI (1989 to 2014)
Measurements of soil moisture began in 1989 for all treatments on the LTER main site and in 1993 on the successional and forest sites.
