Agronomic Yields - Alfalfa
Yields from the alfalfa (treatment 6) harvests of the Main Cropping System Experiment at the LTER Main Site.
This datatable is part of the Agronomic Yields in Row Crop Agriculture dataset. This data set contains information about agronomic yields for the Main Cropping System Experiment which include treatments 1-4 (corn – wheat – soybean rotations) and after 1994 treatment 6 (alfalfa). Agronomic yields are measured during normal crop harvest; yields are determined by machine harvesters appropriate to each crop as described in the Agronomic protocol.
