Data from: Plant Tissue Characteristics of Miscanthus x giganteus v2

    As part of a study identifying relationships between environmental variables and insect distributions within a bioenergy crop, giant miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus) samples were collected in October 2016 at 33 locations within a field in southeast Georgia, USA. This dataset describes the chemical composition of giant miscanthus leaves and stems including the total carbon (TC) and nitrogen (TN) content, total macro- and micronutrients.

      Alfalfa Response to Potassium Rate and Timing of Application

        Alfalfa production is a key component of livestock production in Tennessee. Alfalfa has the ability to take up luxury amounts of potassium, which can lead to high plant tissue K concentrations and lower concentrations of other nutrients. The objectives of this research were to determine 1) whether Tennessee K recommendations for alfalfa were sufficient and accurate, and 2) if splitting K applications impacted alfalfa yield.

        Kellogg Soil Survey Laboratory (KSSL) POX-C dataset

          Forty two samples were selected from the Kellogg Soil Survey Laboratory (KSSL) archive. The soils (41) were taken from the A horizon except for one sample that came from an O horizon. The samples represented 9 of the 12 US soil Orders, including Mollisols (23), Alfisols (5), Ultisols (5), Andisols (2), Entisols (2), Inceptisols (2), Aridisols (1), Histosols (1) and Vertisols (1). The soils varied widely in SOC (3.0 – 288.4 g kg-1; mean 31 g kg-1), pH (4.3 – 8.5; mean 6.2) and clay content (3.6 – 47.0%; mean 21.5%) The geographic origin of the selected samples and the distribution of SOC concentrations, clay contents and pH values are in the sample selected materials.
