Ag Data Commons migration begins October 18, 2023

The Ag Data Commons is migrating to a new platform – an institutional portal on Figshare. Starting October 18 the current system will be available for search and download only. Submissions will resume after the launch of our portal on Figshare in November. Stay tuned for details!

Growth and Yield Data for the Bushland, Texas, Cotton Datasets

    This dataset consists of growth and yield data for upland cotton [*Gossypium hirsutum* (L.)] grown for lint and seed at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Research Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 2000 through 2004, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2020 on up to four large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field similarly cropped. Crops were grown variously under irrigated, deficit irrigated, and dryland conditions. The datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data. Water management treatments ranged from irrigation replenishing crop water use fully every week (full) to deficit irrigations ranging down to 1/3 of full, and to dryland cropping without irrigation. Irrigation application methods included sprinkler and subsurface drip irrigation. The entire datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data. This dataset focuses on the cotton growth and yield data.

    Growth and Yield Data for the Bushland, Texas, Sorghum Datasets

      This dataset consists of growth and yield data for sorghum [*Sorghum bicolor* (L.)] grown for grain at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 1988, 1991, 1993, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2003 through 2007, 2014, and 2015 (13 years). In 2006 and 2007, sorghum was also grown for forage. Sorghum was grown on from one to four large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field, and in those surrounding fields. Water management treatments ranged from irrigation replenishing crop water use fully every week (full) to deficit irrigations ranging down to 1/3 of full, and to dryland cropping without irrigation. Irrigation application methods included sprinkler and subsurface drip irrigation. The entire datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data. This dataset focuses on the sorghum growth and yield data.

      Growth and Yield Data for the Bushland, Texas, Soybean Datasets

        This dataset consists of growth and yield data for soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] grown for seed at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 1995, 2003, 2004, 2010 and 2019. In the 1995, 2003, 2004, and 2010 seasons, soybean was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. In 2019, soybean was grown on four large, precision weighing lysimeters and their surrounding and contiguous 4.4 ha square fields. The entire datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data. This dataset focuses on the soybean growth and yield data.

        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.

            Data are presented to evaluate 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.

            AmeriFlux ecosystem observation datasets - University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Agricultural Research Service rainfed maize-soybean rotation site

            NAL Geospatial Catalog
              The study site is one of three fields (all located within 1.6 km of each other) at the University of Nebraska Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead, Nebraska. While the other two sites are equipped with irrigation systems, this site relies on rainfall. A tillage operation (disking) was done just prior to the 2001 planting to homogenize the top 0.1 m of soil, incorporate P and K fertilizers, as well as previously accumulated surface residues. Since initiation of the study in 2001, this site has been under no-till management.

              PIVNOZ-PIPELOSS

                These two software programs have been developed to aid in the design and analysis of center pivot and traveling lateral sprinkler irrigation systems.

                Data from: Biological control of boxwood blight by Pseudomonas protegens recovered from recycling irrigation systems

                  A total of 1547 bacterial strains recovered from recycling irrigation systems were evaluated *in vitro* and *in planta* for their biological control efficacy against boxwood (*Buxus* spp.) blight caused by *Calonectria pseudonaviculata* (*Cps*), an emerging fungal disease in the United States. *Pseudomonas protegens* strains produced antifungal secondary metabolites that reduced *Cps* growth and infection.
