Agronomic Yields — MCSE Scale-up Experiment
Agronomic grain yields of corn, soybean, and wheat harvests, reported at standard moisture, from the commercially managed fields of the MCSE Scale-up Experiment.
This datatable is part of the MCSE Scale-up Experiment dataset.
The MCSE Scale-up Experiment examined the scalability of plot-scale results from the annual cropping systems of the Main Cropping System Experiment (MCSE) at the LTER Main Site to field-scale conclusions. The MCSE Conventional (T1), Reduced-input (T3), and Biologically based (T4) management practices were each replicated in three commercially managed fields in the KBS landscape, with each crop in the corn-soybean-wheat rotation as an entry point for a total of 3x3x3 = 27 fields. The experiment was established in 2006 and retired in 2013. Agronomic yields and spatial yields were routinely monitored.
