Ag Data Commons Maintenance - Monday 03/01/2021

The Ag Data Commons technical team needs to apply security updates to the system. This maintenance will take place on Monday, March 1, 2021, between 7:00 am ET and 12:00 pm ET. The website and application may experience brief, intermittent outages during this period. Avoid adding or editing datasets during this period to prevent losing information. A message will be sent to the Ag Data Commons registered users once all maintenance is complete.

NUOnet (Nutrient Use and Outcome Network) database

    The Nutrient Uptake and Outcomes (NUOnet) database will be able to help establish baselines on nutrient use efficiencies; processes contributing to nutrient losses; and processes contributing to optimal crop yield, nutritional and organoleptic quality. This national database could be used to calculate many different environmental indicators from a comprehensive understanding of nutrient stocks and flows.

    USDA Table of Nutrient Retention Factors, Release 6 (2007)

      Release 6, of this data set, replaces the previous release, Release 5, issued in 2003. The data set contains the factors for calculating retention of 26 vitamins, minerals and alcohol during food preparation. Factors for the other 25 food components in Release 4 are unchanged. Factors for total choline have been added to this release.

      Low-Disturbance Manure Incorporation

        The LDMI experiment (Low-Disturbance Manure Incorporation) was designed to evaluate nutrient losses with conventional and improved liquid dairy manure management practices in a corn silage (*Zea mays*) / rye cover-crop (*Secale cereale*) system. The improved manure management treatments were designed to incorporate manure while maintaining crop residue for erosion control. Field observations included greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes from soil, soil nutrient concentrations, crop growth and harvest biomass and nutrient content, as well as monitoring of soil physical and chemical properties. Observations from LDMI have been used for parameterization and validation of computer simulation models of GHG emissions from dairy farms (Gaillard et al., submitted). The LDMI experiment was performed as part of the Dairy CAP.

        USDA Special Interest Databases on Flavonoids

          The US Department of Agriculture has published several Special Interest Databases (SID) on flavonoids. The resource linked to here is where the most current versions of these databases are maintained. It contains direct data downloads, and more detailed information for the following USDA Special Interest Databases on Flavonoids: USDA Database for the Flavonoid Content of Selected Foods, Release 3.2 (November 2015), USDA Database for the Isoflavone Content of Selected Foods, Release 2.1 (November 2015), USDA Database for the Proanthocyanidin Content of Selected Foods, Release 2 (2015), and USDA's Expanded Flavonoid Database for the Assessment of Dietary Intakes (September 2014)
