Geo-referenced Agronomic Yields – Raw Data — MCSE Scale-up Experiment

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Raw data on geo-referenced grain yields of corn, soybean, and wheat from the commercially managed fields of the MCSE Scale-up Experiment as collected by the GPS yield monitor on the LTER combine.

This datatable is part of the MCSE Scale-up Experiment dataset.

The MCSE Scale-up Experiment examined the scalability of plot-scale results from the annual cropping systems of the Main Cropping System Experiment (MCSE) at the LTER Main Site to field-scale conclusions. The MCSE Conventional (T1), Reduced-input (T3), and Biologically based (T4) management practices were each replicated in three commercially managed fields in the KBS landscape, with each crop in the corn-soybean-wheat rotation as an entry point for a total of 3x3x3 = 27 fields. The experiment was established in 2006 and retired in 2013. Agronomic yields and spatial yields were routinely monitored.
