GLBRC083-001 Agronomic Field Log and Activity Reports
Log of the agronomic activities on the GLBRC sites. See here for an interactive version
GLBRC083-003 Activity Report
This tables lists the activities and equipment used on replicate 1 of the GLBRC intensive experiment. This table only lists one replicate since most activities are the same between replicates.
GLBRC083-006 Insecticide Use by Year and Treatment
A report of the insecticides used on all treatments and replicates of the GLBRC Intensive site.
GLBRC083-007 GLBRC Intensive Site GPS Coordinates
Point location coordinates for various features on the GLBRC Intensive experiment collected with GPS (global positioning system).
GLBRC083-008 GLBRC KBS Marshall Farm Scale-up Site GPS Coordinates
Point location coordinates for various features on the KBS GLBRC Scale-up fields collected with GPS (global positioning system).
GLBRC083-009 Elevations measured with RTK GPS
Elevations of the KBS GLBRC Intensive site as measured by survey-grade gps from a tractor-mounted real-time kinetic GPS.
GLBRC083-010 GLBRC KBS Lux Arbor Reserve Scale-up Site GPS Coordinates
Point location coordinates for various features on the KBS GLBRC Scale-up fields collected with GPS (global positioning system).
GLBRC083-011 KBS GLBRC Intensive Site Crop History
Crop history on GLBRC Intensive Site ("field 98") prior to the start of the GLBRC project. Field 98-1 (5.8 acres) is approximately the field area west of the GLBRC Biofuel Cropping System Experiment, field 98-2 (23.4 acres) is approximately the northern section of the GLBRC Biofuel Cropping System Experiment where blocks 1-3 are located and field 98-3 (26 acres) is approximately the southern section of the GLBRC Biofuel Cropping System Experiment where blocks 4-5 are located. Prior to 1988, field 98 was managed by the KBS Dairy Farm. Crop rotations or rotation duration for specific years prior to 1988 can not be identified. With relative confidence we can say that the crops produced prior to 1988 consisted of four types: alfalfa, corn, soybeans, and wheat. By verbal communication from KBS Dairy Farm members KBS has owned/managed field 98 in 1980 and most likely as far back as the 1950’s-1960.
GLBRC083-012 Other Materials applied by Year and Treatment
A report of the miscellaneous materials used on all treatments and replicates of the GLBRC Intensive site.
GLBRC083-013 KBS GLBRC Scale-up Site Crop History
Crop history on GLBRC Scale-up Sites prior to the start of the GLBRC project. Lux Arbor fields: Field 62 = L1 (Continuous Corn), field 63 = L2 (switchgrass), field 64 and 65 = L3 (prairie). Marshall Farm fields: Field 44-1 = M1 (continuous corn), field 44-2 = M2 (prairie) and field 44-3 = M3 (switchgrass). Some fields were not always operated by KBS so we don't have information about what was growing during that time period.
GLBRC083-014 Switchgrass Varieties Planted on GLBRC Research Experiments
Switchgrass has been planted on various GLBRC experiments. This table indicates which variety of switchgrass was planted. Panicum virgatum var. Cave-in-Rock is a non-native variety and Panicum virgatum var. Southlow is a native variety.
