Direct Certification with Medicaid for Free and Reduced-Price Meals (DCM-F/RP) Demonstration

    The demonstration of Direct Certification with Medicaid for Free and Reduced-Price Meals (DCM-F/RP) allows authorized States and school districts to use information from Medicaid to identify students eligible to receive meals under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) for free or at a reduced price. District-level administrative records data on certification and NSLP and SBP participation were collected to evaluate the demonstration. The analysis sample includes 5,966 public, private, and charter school districts in the 15 States participating in the DCM-F/RP demonstration in school year (SY) 2019-20.

    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.

      Operational Tillage Information System (OpTIS) tillage, residue, and soil health practice dataset

        CTIC has partnered with Applied GeoSolutions and The Nature Conservancy on the development, testing and application of the Operational Tillage Information System (OpTIS), an automated system to map tillage, residue cover, winter cover, and soil health practices using remote sensing data. While OpTIS calculations are performed at the farm-field scale using publicly available data, the privacy of individual producers is fully protected by reporting only spatially-aggregated results at regional and watershed scales. OpTIS-based data are currently available for the years 2005 through 2018 for the US Corn Belt, including all of Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa, as well as parts of: Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

        Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) cultivars mean annual forage yield (US Ton ac-1) from Northeast USA and Ontario (Canada) from 1995 to 2013

          Database of forage yield for 679 alfalfa cultivars from 1060 public trials conducted between 1995 and 2013, comprising 86 locations in 11 US states (Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) and one Canadian province (Ontario). Includes 28,070 observations, with an observation defined as a cultivar total annual forage yield mean across three to eight replicates per trial-year. Dataset includes Years 1 (establishment year) through 4 to 6 (depending on location and year).

          Uniform Soybean Tests, Northern Region

            The Uniform Soybean Tests, Northern Region, in place since 1941, evaluate yield, disease resistance, and quality traits of public breeding lines from northern states of the USA and Canadian provinces. The annual reports which compile the test results (PDF format) are available, and new reports are added annually.

            NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Great Lakes Region

              America’s Great Lakes — Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario — hold 21 percent of the world’s surface fresh water and host habitat for a variety of fish and wildlife species of concern. They provide drinking water for more than 40 million people and economic benefits from fishing and recreation. The Great Lakes Region is also a major agricultural area, with more than 55 million acres of land under production. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

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

                The Sustainable Corn CAP (Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project: Climate Change, Mitigation, and Adaptation in Corn-based Cropping Systems) was a multi-state transdisciplinary project supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (Award No. 2011-68002-30190). Research experiments were located through the U.S. Corn Belt and examined farm-level adaptation practices for corn-based cropping systems to current and predicted impacts of climate change.

                Data from: Population dynamics of an invasive forest insect and associated natural enemies in the aftermath of invasion

                  Datasets archived here consist of all data analyzed in Duan et al. 2015 from Journal of Applied Ecology. Specifically, these data were collected from annual sampling of emerald ash borer (*Agrilus planipennis*) immature stages and associated parasitoids on infested ash trees (*Fraxinus*) in Southern Michigan, where three introduced biological control agents had been released between 2007 - 2010.
