Agricultural management accentuates interannual variability in water fluxes but not carbon fluxes in the U.S. Corn Belt. Schreiner-Mcgraw, A.P., Wood, J.D., Metz, M.E., Sadler, E.J., Sudduth, K.A. 2023. Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. 333. Article 109420.
- A no-till cropping system has higher carbon fluxes than a conventional field.
- A native prairie has higher evapotranspiration than the agricultural sites.
- The conventional field is most sensitive to changes in environmental conditions.
- Inter-annual variability in evaporation is accentuated by agricultural management.
