Summary
Abstract: These data are from P.B. Ford, M.S. thesis work at the University of
GA. The data are the results of a controlled conditions study where
the residues of wheat, oats, barley, alfalfa, and sorghum were
placed in mesh bags and buried in soil held in aluminium pans. The
study was conducted in a growth chamber at 35 degrees C. Soil
moisture was maintained near 75% by weighing on alternate days. There
were four repetitions. Ten grams of each residue was placed in the
bags at the begining of the study, and the amount remaining was
measured five times in the 112 day long study. The percent carbon,
Nitrogen, and lignin of each residue was measured:

Wheat 43.82%C 0.45%N 10.65% lignin
oats 42.84%C 0.23%N 10.23% Lignin
barley 44.91%C 0.32%N 10.02%Lignin
(alfalfa and sorghum N/A)
