Agronomic Yields - Unfertilized/Fertilized Microplots

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Microplots were established on the perennial crops to look at the affects of fertilization on yield. Treatments G5, G6, G7, G9 are normally fertilized so the microplot is unfertilized; Treatment G10 does not receive fertilizer so the G10 microplot is fertilized.

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.
