FACETS enterprise crop budgets for NE Florida and SW Georgia

    Enterprise budgets contained in this database were developed as part of the Floridian Aquifer Collaborative Engagement for Sustainability (FACETS), a large-scale, multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary project funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). The goal of this project is to promote the economic sustainability of agriculture and silviculture in North Florida and South Georgia while protecting water quantity, quality, and habitat in the Upper Floridan Aquifer and the springs and rivers it feeds. This dataset includes budgets developed for pine plantations, corn and peanut crops, and hay and pasture production in the Lower Suwannee River Basin, Florida.

    Floridan Aquifer Collaborative Engagement for Sustainability (FACETS) - Field trial data from University of Georgia Stripling Irrigation Research Park (SIRP): ARDN Products

      ARDN (Agricultural Research Data Network) annotations for "Floridan Aquifer Collaborative Engagement for Sustainability (FACETS) - Field trial data from University of Georgia Stripling Irrigation Research Park (SIRP)". The ARDN project (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) and described in detail here: www.tinyurl.com/icasa-mvl”. The original dataset presents evaluations of different irrigation and fertilization treatments (corn and cotton have three nitrogen fertilization and three irrigation treatments, peanut has nine irrigation treatments and no N fertilizer treatment) at the University of Georgia’s Stripling Irrigation Research Park (SIRP) located near Camilla, Georgia in a 4 ha research field.

      Floridan Aquifer Collaborative Engagement for Sustainability (FACETS) - Field trial data from Live Oak, Florida: ARDN products

        ARDN (Agricultural Research Data Network) annotations for "Floridan Aquifer Collaborative Engagement for Sustainability (FACETS) - Field trial data from Live Oak, Florida". The ARDN project (https://data.nal.usda.gov/ardn) is a network of datasets harmonized and aggregated using a common vocabulary termed ICASA. ICASA is a recommended data dictionary by USDA NAL (https://data.nal.usda.gov/data-dictionary-examples) described in detail here: www.tinyurl.com/icasa-mvl. Research was conducted at the North Florida Research and Education Center - Suwannee Valley, located near Live Oak, Florida (30°18’22” N, 82°54’00” W). Corn, carrots, peanuts, and rye (cover crop) were grown on Hurricane, Chipley, and Blanton soil complexes that are all over 90% sand. The experimental design utilized a randomized complete block design with split plot that incorporated two fields with eight blocks (treatment replicates) and fifteen plots per block. The main plots contained four irrigation treatments, and the sub-plots contained three different nitrogen rates. The SMS irrigation treatment contained three additional nitrogen treatments. The north field in the study (System 2) was a corn-cover crop-peanut-cover crop rotation, while the south field (System 1) was a corn-carrot-peanut-cover crop rotation. During each growing season, soil moisture was monitored using capacitance type soil moisture sensors, soil nitrogen was measured through bi-weekly soil samples at four depths, and biomass was collected four times with the final sample being collected just prior to harvest.
