Agronomic Yields — MCSE Scale-up Experiment

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Agronomic yields of corn, soy and wheat from the Main Cropping System Experiment Scale-up sites in bushels/acre at standard crop moistures.

This datatable is part of the MCSE Scale-up Fields dataset. This study investigates the viability of extending the Main Cropping System Experiment (MCSE) treatments on the LTER Main Site to larger areas, in a conventional farming system. Agronomic yield and spatial yields are monitored as part of the baseline sampling.
