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.

Data from: Earthworms increase the potential for enzymatic bio-activation of biochars made from co-pyrolyzing animal manures and plastic wastes

    Data supporting "Earthworms increase the potential for enzymatic bio-activation of biochars made from co-pyrolyzing animal manures and plastic wastes". We assessed the enzymatic activation of four different biochars produced from pyrolyzing swine manure and poultry litter, and by co-pyrolyzing these livestock residues with agricultural spent mulch plastic film wastes (plastichars).

    Dynamic Soil Properties for Soil Health projects-v2

      This version-2 expands and updates the first dataset from the Dynamic Soil Properties for Soil Health (DSP4SH) initiative. The dataset represents the data gathered, processed, and curated using scientifically based approaches to evaluate dynamic soil properties as soil health metrics. This dataset comprises of raw data collected from assessment of dynamic soil properties that may change due to agricultural land management.

        Data from: A database for global soil health assessment

          The SoilHealthDB database integrates soil health measurements conducted in the field from sites across the globe. SoilHealthDC currently focuses on four main conservation management methods: cover crops, no-tillage, agro-forestry systems, and organic farming. These studies represent 354 geographic sites (i.e., locations with unique latitudes and longitudes) in 42 countries around the world. The SoilHealthDB includes 42 soil health indicators and 46 background indicators that describe factors such as climate, elevation, and soil type.
