IPM Images: The Source for Agriculture and Pest Management Pictures

    A joint project of The University of Georgia - Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, The Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Southern Integrated Pest Management Center, Southern Plant Diagnostic Network, and USDA/APHIS Identification Technology Program, [IPM Images](https://www.ipmimages.org/) image categories include: Commodity Groups; Taxonomy; Biological Controls; Damage Types; and Diseases.

    Plant Variety Protection Office - Scanned Certificates

      This dataset provides the scans of issued certificates for a variety of plants. If you know the certificate number or applicant name simply enter the information in the search box. For certificates issued between 1970 and 1999, add two zeroes in front of the 7-digit number. Alternatively, you can search by selecting a crop from the list.

      AMIS Market Database

        Statistics at a Glance provides summary tables of the main data items currently covered by AMIS (Agricultural Market Information System). There are production, supply, utilization, trade and closing stocks. Users can select a country on the world map and specify their request by selecting one of the four AMIS crops: wheat, maize, rice, or soybeans. Alternatively, users can display aggregate values for total cereals and coarse grains.

        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.

          GrainGenes, the genome database for small-grain crops

            GrainGenes is a popular repository for information about genetic maps, mapping probes and primers, genes, alleles and QTLs for the following crops: wheat, barley, rye and oat. Documentation includes such data as primer sequences, polymorphism descriptions, genotype and trait scoring data, experimental protocols used, and photographs of marker polymorphisms, disease symptoms and mutant phenotypes. These data, curated with the help of many members of the research community, are integrated with sequence and bibliographic records selected from external databases and results of BLAST searches of the ESTs.

            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.
