The objective of the "Carbon Sequestration by Switchgrass
Managed as an Energy Crop" dataset is to monitor carbon
sequestration over time in switchgrass and to compare the
economic and carbon sequestration ...
(adapted from project summary)
Problems: Carbon in soils varies quantitatively and with depth
depending on theland use management. Some management practices allow
for considerable sequestration and ...

This experiment began in 1968 on a natural grassland area of Poland.
The site was arable crops to 1945 and later returned to grassland.
The land use of this area is permanent meadow now. Treatments ...

The Deherain long-term field experiment was started in 1875 to study the
impact of fertilization on crop yield. Before 1875, the soil was
cultivated with alfalfa without fertilization. Between 1929 ...
The "Denitrifying Activity in Deep Soil Profiles" dataset
contains data on what factors control denitrifying activity in
deep soil profiles. Its purpose is to evaluate an N-based method
for measuring ...
(adapted from project description)
