Planting details for the Cellulosic Biofuels Diversity Experiment

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.

2017-05-10 CE105 Dekalb DKC52-84 RIB Corn Hybrid 32000 seeds Planted corn in the Main Site LTER: CE study treatment CE3 plots (105, 207, 301, 403), T8nt plots, N-rate Studies (irrigated & non-irrigated), and Main Site LTER T2 replications (6, 5, and 4). CE1 treatment was fallow in 2017 so no corn was planted in CE1 plots: (108, 202, 304, 401). Broke a seed tube on the planter so we could not finish planting the remain replications. Planted with JD 7330 tractor and JD 1730 planter. Planted Dekalb DKC52-84 RIB seed corn at 32,000 seeds/acre. Planting depth: 1.5 inches. Dekalb DKC52-84 RIB has a relative maturity of 102 days (2550 growing degree units to black layer). DKC52-84A RIB is Roundup Ready Genuity Smartstax RIB (refuge in a bag) corn blend. Applied 19-17-0 liquid fertilizer at 14.0 gallons/acre. 14 gals/A of 19-17-0 supplies 29.22 lbs N/A and 26.14 lbs P205/A. The fertilizer was placed two inches to the side and two inches below the seed at planting.
