Soil Water Chemistry — Switchgrass Nitrogen Rate Experiment
Soil water (leachate) samples collected biweekly throughout the growing season from low-tension soil water samplers (also called suction lysimeters) buried ~1.2 meters deep in replicates R2-R4 of the Switchgrass Nitrogen Rate Experiment and analyzed for a range of chemical parameters.
This datatable is part of the Switchgrass Nitrogen Rate Experiment dataset. Data from the Switchgrass Nitrogen Rate Experiment (formerly Nitrogen/Harvest) at the KBS GLBRC Intensive Field Site. Switchgrass is grown under 8 rates of nitrogen fertilization (F1-F8; 0-196 kg N/ha) with each treatment plot replicated in four blocks (R1-R4). From 2010–2012, the experiment also included split plots with two harvest strategies (H1, H2; 1 vs 2 harvests/yr) for each nitrogen treatment; from 2013 onward all split plots are harvested only once in the fall, with yields measured separately 2013-2022 and combined starting in 2023.
See the Switchgrass Nitrogen Rate Experiment map for further details.
