Data from: Chapter 3: Cropland Agriculture. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

    The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 3, Cropland Agriculture, of the report. Data are presented for Cropland Soils (N2O), Rice Cultivation + Residue Burning (CH4 + N2O), and Agricultural Soil Carbon and Amendments (CO2).

    Data from: Chapter 2- Livestock and Grazed Lands Emissions. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

      The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 2, Livestock and Grazed Lands Emissions, of the report. This chapter covers carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions and removals due to enteric fermentation, animal waste management, and land use for confined and grazed animals.

        Swan Lake Research Farm Weather Station LTAR UMRB-Morris Minnesota

          The United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) North Central Soil Conservation Research Laboratory - Soil Management Unit established a weather data collection system at the Swan Lake Research Farm in 1997. Weather data collected include wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, relative humidity, air temperature, soil temperatures, soil heat flux, solar radiation, photosynthetic active radiation, and precipitation. In 2015 the site became part of the Long Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) project. The Swan Lake Research Farm is located in Stevens County Minnesota, in the Upper Mississippi River Basin (UMRB) watershed.

          Organic Amendment Study for Greenhouse gas Reduction through Agricultural Carbon Enhancement network and Nutrient Use and Outcome Network in Fort Collins, Colorado

            Dairy manure is commonly used in place of inorganic N fertilizers but the impacts on trace gas flux, yields and soil N are not well understood in the semiarid western US. CO2, N2O, and CH4 were monitored using surface chamnbers from 5 N treatments to determine their effect on greenhouse gas emissions from a tilled clay loam soil under irrigated, continuous corn production for a 3 yr. time period.

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

              ARDN (Agricultural Research Data Network) annotations for Sustainable Corn CAP Research Data (USDA-NIFA Award No. 2011-68002-30190). These data are a subset of the Sustainable Corn CAP (Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project: Climate Change, Mitigation, and Adaptation in Corn-based Cropping Systems) data specifically developed for Agricultural Research Data Network with csv and json files for easy ingestion into crop models.

              Data from: A deletion mutation in TaHRC confers Fhb1 resistance to Fusarium head blight in wheat

                Fusarium head blight (FHB), which is mainly caused by *Fusarium graminearum*, is a destructive wheat disease that threatens global wheat production. *Fhb1*, a quantitative trait locus discovered in Chinese germplasm, provides the most stable and the largest effect on FHB resistance in wheat. Here we show that *TaHRC*, a gene that encodes a putative histidine-rich calcium-binding protein, is the key determinant of *Fhb1*-mediated resistance to FHB.

                Global Land Analysis & Discovery (GLAD) Global Cropland Extent

                  This study utilized 250m MODIS (MODerate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data to map global production cropland extent. A set of multi-year MODIS metrics incorporating four MODIS land bands, NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) and thermal data was employed to depict cropland phenology over the period 2000-2008. The probability and discrete cropland/non-cropland data are available for download by MODIS tile at the full ~250m resolution or as global mosaics at ~1km resolution.

                  Economic Model of Deficit Irrigation

                    The model calculates net income from a crop on a unit of land based on a quadratic crop water production function, amount of effective precipitation, irrigation efficiency, cost of the irrigation water supply, crop production costs, and revenue from selling the crop. The model includes potential income from leasing out saved irrigation water. All biophysical variables are defined in terms of the relative evapotranspiration. Net income is maximized by optimizing the amount of water consumed by the crop.
