Geo-referenced Agronomic Yields - Raw Data

Raw data on geo-referenced crop yields of corn, soy and wheat from the Main Cropping System Experiment Scale-up sites as collected by the GPS yield monitor on the LTER combine.

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.
