Narrative Agronomic Log

A narrative of the agronomic events on the Biodiversity Gradient Experiment

This datatable is part of the Agronomic Yields on the Biodiversity Gradient Experiment dataset. Agronomic yields have been measured on the Biodiversity Gradient Experiment since 2000. Samples are collected from the corn, soy and winter wheat plots before harvest by harvesting a subplot with a plot combine.

Initial soil moisture from the Biodiversity Gradient baseline sampling is also available for corn, soy and wheat plots.

2017-12-01 Flail mowed corn stalks in LTER N-Rate Nitrogen study both irrigated and non irrigated, CE study corn plots, corn and soybean plots in biodiversity as well as the spring fallow plots. Justin Mezo
2017-12-01 No-till planted wheeler rye in the LTER Biodiversity study treatments B3 (111, 203, 306, 409), B4 (104, 220, 307, 404), B16 (101, 210, 308, 416). Plots B3 (111, 203,306, 403), B16 (101, and half of 210) were planted on November 14, 2017 but conditions were to wet to plant any more so all other plots were planted on December 1, 2017. Rye was planted with a target rate of 2.8 bu/A or 157lbs/A. Rye was actually seeded at 2.7 bu/A or 149 lbs/A. Planting depth was 1 to 1-1/2 inches deep and setting on drill was #39. Justin Mezo
2017-12-01 Planted winter wheat in the LTER Biodiversity Study treatments: B5 (114, 217, 312, 405), B8 (118, 214, 310, 408), B11 (110, 216, 309, 411), B14 (115, 204, 304, 414), B17 (116, 211, 302, 417), B20 (120, 215, 318, 420). Justin Mezo
2017-12-01 Soil finished the LTER Biodiversity Study treatments: B5 (114, 217, 312, 405), B8 (118, 214, 310, 408), B11 (110, 216, 309, 411), B14 (115, 204, 304, 414), B17 (116, 211, 302, 417), B20 (120, 215, 318, 420) Each plot was gone over with three passes two times to get a good even seed bed.

2017-11-30 Chisel Plowed the LTER Biodiversity Study treatments: B5 (114, 217, 312, 405), B8 (118, 214, 310, 408), B11 (110, 216, 309, 411), B14 (115, 204, 304, 414), B17 (116, 211, 302, 417), B20 (120, 215, 318, 420) Chisel plowed treatments that were being planted to wheat. Chisel plowed with JD 7330 tractor and JD 714 chisel plow. Justin Mezo
