Agronomic Yields -- Wheat Straw — Main Cropping System Experiment (MCSE)

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Wheat straw is harvested and baled and weighed in the years when wheat is grown on the site. The whole plot is baled as one instead of being split into east and west sections as is done for the grain harvest.

This datatable is part of the Agronomic Yields in Row Crop Agriculture dataset. This data set contains information about agronomic yields for the Main Cropping System Experiment which include treatments 1-4 (corn – wheat – soybean rotations) and after 1994 treatment 6 (alfalfa). Agronomic yields are measured during normal crop harvest; yields are determined by machine harvesters appropriate to each crop as described in the Agronomic protocol.
