Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Datasets

    Site-based crop modeling data from field experiments, farm surveys, and yield trials. These data are in AgMIP harmonized format, ready for translation to multiple crop model formats using the data translation tools at [http://tools.agmip.org/](http://tools.agmip.org/). Details on AgMIP can be found at [http://www.agmip.org/](http://www.agmip.org/).

    Agricultural Collaborative Research Outcomes System (AgCROS)

      The Agricultural Collaborative Research Outcomes System (AgCROS) is a growing “network of networks” that presently consists of multiple agricultural data networks: Nutrient Uptake and Outcome Network (NUOnet), the Greenhouse gas Reduction through Agricultural Carbon Enhancement Network (GRACEnet), Resilient Economic Agricultural Practices (REAP), Dairy Agriculture for People and the Planet (DAPP; Dairy Grand Challenge), Soil Health Assessment Network (SHAnet), Agricultural Antibiotic Resistance (AgAR), and the Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Network. By integrating these diverse database networks, AgCROS facilitates the flow of information and increases the cooperation among researchers participating in these networks.

      FoodData Central

        Several USDA food composition databases, including the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies (FNDDS), Standard Reference (SR) Legacy, and the USDA Branded Food Products Database, have transitioned to FoodData Central, a new and harmonized USDA food and nutrient data system. FoodData Central will also include expanded nutrient content information never before available, as well as links to diverse data sources that offer related agricultural, food, health, dietary supplement, and other information.

        LTAR Phosphorus Budget Summary

          Surface agronomic P budgets for 61 cropping systems using field-scale P flux data across 24 research sites in the United States and Canada. Data are representative of P inputs and outputs associated with the production of each crop in a respective rotation year, ranging from 1 to 10 rotation years. This dataset provides a comparison of field-scale soil surface P fluxes and phosphorus budgets across sites and cropping systems.

          Agricultural land use by field: Upper Mississippi River Basin 2010-2020

            This database is structured around individual farm fields as the unit of record, providing a framework that enables land use to be assessed at the same scale that agricultural land uses shift, at an annual time step, and at the scale at which conservation practices are implemented. It is beneficial to document agricultural land cover and its rates of change to understand responses of watershed, landscape, and agroecosystem processes to changes in land use and to identify viable approaches that can be customized for local adoption and mitigate environmental impacts from agricultural production.

            Agricultural land use by field: Nebraska 2010-2020

              This database is structured around individual farm fields as the unit of record, providing a framework that enables land use to be assessed at the same scale that agricultural land uses shift, at an annual time step, and at the scale at which conservation practices are implemented. It is beneficial to document agricultural land cover and its rates of change to understand responses of watershed, landscape, and agroecosystem processes to changes in land use and to identify viable approaches that can be customized for local adoption and mitigate environmental impacts from agricultural production.

              Agricultural land use by field: Illinois 2010-2020

                This database is structured around individual farm fields as the unit of record, providing a framework that enables land use to be assessed at the same scale that agricultural land uses shift, at an annual time step, and at the scale at which conservation practices are implemented.

                TERRA-REF Season 6 phenotypes and agronomic metadata in BrAPI format

                  This data represents a small subset of the TERRA-REF release available on Dryad (LeBauer et al 2020), including harvested biomass for each cultivar, plot location, planting date, harvest date, fertilizer application, genotype / accession names and metadata, and additional agronomic management metadata for a population of Sorghum bicolor evaluated over two growing seasons. The data can be accessed through a BrAPI-compliant endpoint at terraref.org/brapi. This dataset is a snapshot of the TERRA-REF BrAPI endpoint contents, representing the minimum data and metadata required to run a crop model.
