Geo-referenced Annual Crop Yields - Processed

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Annual crop harvest yields of corn, soy and wheat from the Main Cropping System Experiment at the LTER Main Site as calculated by the John Deere Ag Office software using the grain flow-rate data as supplied by the GPS yield monitor on the LTER harvest combine (see the data in “Related Tables”).

This datatable is part of the Precision Agriculture Yield Monitoring in Row Crop Agriculture dataset. The LTER annual crops (corn, soy and wheat), treatments 1-4, are harvested annually using a combine equipped with a GPS and precision agriculture software to allow detailed yield measurements with coincident GPS latitude and longitude data..
