Interpretive Summary: The USDA-ARS Grazinglands Research Laboratory (GRL) plays an active role in water quality and erosion research. The Water Resources and Erosion (WRE) watersheds have been used for almost thirty years to study the influence of agriculture on surface water runoff and sediment movement. Historic data collected from this research are archived and published in a number of technical reports. The objective of this report is to provide a tabular listing of plant biomass data collected on the WRE watersheds from December 1998 to November 2002 in order to complete and complement existing technical information. A few measurements from the relic pasture referred to as the triangle are also included. Eventually, this information will be incorporated into the STEWARDS (Sustaining The Earth’s Watersheds Agricultural Research Data System) and available online.

Technical Abstract: The Water Resources and Erosion (WRE) watersheds, located the USDA-ARS, Grazinglands Research Laboratory (GRL), have supported water quality and erosion research programs for almost thirty years. Past and current research on the WRE watersheds deals with the influence of agriculture management (tillage cropping and livestock grazing) on surface water runoff and sediment movement. Data collected from this research are archived and published in a number of technical reports. The objective of this report is to provide a tabular listing of available above ground plant biomass collected on the WRE watersheds from December 1998 to November 2002 and to complete and complement existing technical information. A few measurements from the relic pasture referred to as the triangle are also included. Eventually, this information will be incorporated into the STEWARDS (Sustaining The Earth’s Watersheds Agricultural Research Data System) and available online.
