The Wheat straw harvest data from the LTER Scale-up experiment

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.
