Data from: Chapter 3: Cropland Agriculture. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

    The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 3, Cropland Agriculture, of the report. Data are presented for Cropland Soils (N2O), Rice Cultivation + Residue Burning (CH4 + N2O), and Agricultural Soil Carbon and Amendments (CO2).

    Data from: Temporal and agricultural factors influence E. coli survival in soil and transfer to cucumbers

      Data from the current study were collected to examine the survival of non-pathogenic Escherichia coli and transfer to cucumbers grown in same field in two separate years. Soil moisture, total nitrogen, nitrate, total carbon, soluble carbon, soluble solids, rainfall, soil temperature and air temperature, along with the number of days needed for E. coli to decline by 4 log CFU/gdw, were included in random forest models used to a) predict 4-log declines of E. coli inoculated to soils and b) transfer of E. coli to cucumbers from soils with different biological soil amendments.
