The Ag Data Commons is migrating

The Ag Data Commons is migrating to a new institutional portal on Figshare. The current system is available for search and download only. The new platform is open for submission with assistance from Ag Data Commons curators. Please contact NAL-ADC-Curator@usda.gov, if you need to publish or update your datasets.

Southeast Purdue Agricultural Center (SEPAC) drainage research data, 1984-2020

    This dataset contains research data obtained during a long-term subsurface drainage research project conducted at the Southeast Purdue Agricultural Center in Jennings County, Indiana, from 1984 to 2020. The original goals of the project were to evaluate the effects of different subsurface drain spacings (drainage intensities) on drain flow and corn growth and yield. Additional objectives were added over the years, especially related to movement of agricultural chemicals (nitrate-N, other nutrients, and pesticides) through the soil into the drainage waters.

    Clean Air Status and Trends Network (CASTNET) - Beltsville, United States Environmental Protection Agency

    NAL Geospatial Catalog
      CASTNET measures ambient concentrations of sulfur and nitrogen species as well as rural ozone concentrations. The network includes 90 sites located throughout the US and Canada. Each site measures weekly concentrations of acidic pollutants, base cations and Cl- using a 3-stage filter pack with a controlled flow rate. Most CASTNET sites also include a temperature controlled shelter and continuous ozone monitoring system.
