Long Term Ecological Research (LTER), Jornada Basin Data Catalog

    This dataset links to the Jornada data homepage, which links to 153 individual datasets. Those datasets can then be searched based on Title, Keyword, or Investigator. The Jornada Basin Long Term Ecological Research Program (JRN LTER) has been investigating desertification processes since 1982.

    Southeast Purdue Agricultural Center (SEPAC) drainage research data, 1984-2020

      This dataset contains research data obtained during a long-term subsurface drainage research project conducted at the Southeast Purdue Agricultural Center in Jennings County, Indiana, from 1984 to 2020. The original goals of the project were to evaluate the effects of different subsurface drain spacings (drainage intensities) on drain flow and corn growth and yield. Additional objectives were added over the years, especially related to movement of agricultural chemicals (nitrate-N, other nutrients, and pesticides) through the soil into the drainage waters.

      Data and code from: Synergistic soil, land use, and climate influences on wind erosion on the Colorado Plateau: Implications for management

        This dataset includes code and data to recreate analysis from the manuscript "Nauman, T.W., Munson, S.M., Dhital, S, Webb, N.P., Duniway, M.C. Synergistic soil, land use, and climate influences on wind erosion on the Colorado Plateau: Implications for managemen". In prep for STOTEN. This includes R statistical code, aeolian monitoring data and associated soil, land use, and climate explanatory data for each site, and a raster map showing areas modeled to have more sediment transport.

        The Bushland, Texas Sunflower Datasets

          This parent dataset links to two seasons of datasets on sunflower 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 2009, and 2011. Sunflower was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. 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.

          Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Datasets

            Site-based crop modeling data from field experiments, farm surveys, and yield trials. These data are in AgMIP harmonized format, ready for translation to multiple crop model formats using the data translation tools at [http://tools.agmip.org/](http://tools.agmip.org/). Details on AgMIP can be found at [http://www.agmip.org/](http://www.agmip.org/).

            Data from: Earthworms increase the potential for enzymatic bio-activation of biochars made from co-pyrolyzing animal manures and plastic wastes

              Data supporting "Earthworms increase the potential for enzymatic bio-activation of biochars made from co-pyrolyzing animal manures and plastic wastes". We assessed the enzymatic activation of four different biochars produced from pyrolyzing swine manure and poultry litter, and by co-pyrolyzing these livestock residues with agricultural spent mulch plastic film wastes (plastichars).

              Standard Quality Controlled Research Weather Data – USDA-ARS, Bushland, Texas

                The dataset contains 15-minute weather data from the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU) research weather station, Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL). The data are from sensors deployed at standard heights over grass that is irrigated and mowed during the growing season to reference evapotranspiration standards.

                The Bushland, Texas, Winter Wheat Datasets

                  This parent dataset links to three seasons of datasets on winter wheat 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 1989-90, 1991-92, and 1992-93. Winter wheat was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. The datasets for individual 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. Additional resources provide metadata on conventions, symbols used, geographic coordinates of fields, lysimeters and weather stations, and soil properties.

                  The Bronson Files, Dataset 10, Field 113, 2018 Cotton

                    Dr. Kevin Bronson provides a dataset representing the third of three consecutive years of cotton and nitrogen management experimentation in Field 113 of the Maricopa Agricultural Center, Arizona USA. Included is an intermediate analysis mega-table of correlated and calculated parameters, laboratory analysis results generated during the experimentation, plus high-resolution plot level intermediate data analysis tables of SAS process output, as well as the complete raw data sensor recorded logger outputs. Note that the second and third year of F113 cotton experimentation includes a large utilization of depleted nitrogen-15 isotope tracing to support evaluation of nitrogen use and uptake.
