Research Project: EVALUATION OF THE IMPACT OF IMPROVED MANAGEMENT ON CORN-SOYBEAN PRODUCTION SYSTEMS

Location: Soil, Water & Air Resources Research

Project Number: 5030-11610-001-09-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 29, 2009
End Date: Jun 29, 2014

Objective:
Quantify the potential for enhanced carbon sequestration as well as possible improvements in water and nutrient uptake efficiencies as a result of specific technologies and agronomic practices in corn-soybean cropping systems.

Approach:
Experiments will be conducted in a combination of rhizotron and growth chambers in the National Soil Tilth Laboratory. These experiments will be conducted as a series of comparisons of seed treatments and genetic material on the early growth of corn and soybean using controlled conditions of soil water, soil temperature, and air temperature.
