Planting information from the Agronomic Log of the agronomic crops used on the Cellulosic Biofuels Experiment. See also Perennial seed species and seeding rate of all GLBRC Experiments .

This datatable is part of the Cellulosic Biofuels Diversity Experiment dataset. The Cellulosic Biofuels Diversity Experiment is an additional long-term study located within the LTER Main Site complex, in which a series of 12 different cropping systems vary in species makeup and nitrogen input. Treatments include continuous corn, corn-soybean, two variations of switchgrass fertilized differently, a C3 – C4 grass mix, and prairie grasses native to Michigan with different numbers of species. Switchgrass varieties are Cave-in rock (commercial non-native) and Southlow commercial native). Prairie grasses include switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), and Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans),

Treatment plots are 9.1 by 27m (30 × 40 feet) replicated in each of 4 randomized blocks. The study site was established in 2008. Click on the image for a printable map of the study area.

2021-05-17 CE105 Pioneer P0306Q corn hybrid 32000.0 seeds Planted corn in the LTER CE Study Treatments 1 and 3 (trt 1 plots: 108, 202, 304, and 401), (trt 3 plots: 105, 207, 301, and 403). Equipment used: Planted with JD 7330 tractor and JD 1730 planter. Variety Planted: Pioneer P0306Q seed corn Seed Rate: 32,000 seeds/acre. Planting depth: 1.75 inches. Pioneer P0306Q has a relative maturity of 103 days and is Roundup ready corn 2 and liberty link tolerant. Also has above and below ground traits (herculex extra, agrisureRW, Yield gard corn borer protection). Full fungicide, Insecticide, Nematicide seed treatment. Fertilizer Applied at Planting Time (starter fertilizer): Applied 16.5-16.5-0-2.9 liquid fertilizer at 16.3 gallons/acre. Fertilizer weighed 11.25 lbs per gallon. 16.3 gals/A of 16.5-16.5-0-2.9 supplies 30.25 lbs N/A, 30.25 lbs P205/A, 5.3 lbs of sulfur per acre. Zinc and boron were added to the starter fertilizer and supplied .2 lbs/A of zinc and .3 lbs/A of boron. The fertilizer was placed 3 inches to both sides of the seed trench and about 1/2" to 1" down.
