Crop Residue Decomposition as Affected by Soil Erosion and Tillage, USDA-ARS
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.CPCRC.ResidueDecomp

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set is a result of a study to determine the rates of
different crop residue decomposition (clover and wheat), under two different
cropping regimes (grain sorghum plots with: no till and no nitrogen or
fall disking, spring cultivating with 90 kg Nitrogen), on two
different levels of eroded soils (severly eroded and slightly
eroded). The experiment was replicated 3 times. The nitrogen content
of the wheat was 0.98%. The nitrogen content of the clover was 2.53%.
All residues were placed on the surface in 0.25 mm mesh 15X23 cm
bags. Grain sorghum was planted in May.
