MEASURING SOIL CARBON IN THE LONG TERM EXPERIMENTS AT THE COLUMBIA BASIN AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH CENTER
Project Number: 5356-21610-001-11
Start Date: Dec 28, 2011
End Date: Jun 30, 2012
This project will investigate changes in rapid, intermediate, and stable soil C and N pools that have occurred over a 10-yr period (2000-2010) as a result of tillage and cropping treatments in Pendleton's long term experiments.
Soil samples will be analyzed using USDA-ARS instruments housed in the chemistry laboratory of the Columbia Plateau Conservation Research Center.
