Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use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 yield from the KBS GLBRC Scale-up fields at Lux Arbor Reserve and the Marshall Farm. Treatments were first applied in 2010; all fields were planted with soy in 2009. Stover was first harvested in 2015 and previously was not removed from M1 or L1.

This datatable is part of the KBS GLBRC Agronomic Yields dataset.

Agronomic yield record for the KBS Great Lakes Biofuels Research Center (GLBRC) Intensive site and the GLBRC scale-up fields.
