Soil Inorganic Nitrogen

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Soil extractable nitrogen from soils of the Switchgrass Nitrogen/Harvest Experiment at the GLBRC Biofuel Intensive site. Plants are grown under 8 treatments of nitrogen fertilizer and two harvest strategies.

This datatable is part of the KBS GLBRC soil properties dataset. Soil property measurements from the surface soils of the intensive experiment
