Influence of Weather Parameters on Corn Yields and Composition of Soil Over 100 Years in Morrow PlotsEntry ID: USDA0594
Abstract: The purpose of the data in "Influence of Weather Parameters on
Corn Yields and Composition of Soil Over 100 Years in Morrow
Plots" is to assess the inter-relationship between yield soil
contents and climatic factors on corn yields, and composition of
soil over 100 years in Morrow Plots.
Collection Organization: University of Illinois
Collection Methodology: Analysis of the available data ... combined
from various sources. Since modification in the experimental
conditions have occurred from time to time, certain modification
of available analysis tools needed.
Collection Frequency: Yield, yearly, bi-yearly and tri-yearly,
depending on rotation, soil composition about every 10 years.
Update Characteristics: Yield and weather data are updated, soil
composition data are not updated.
