Research Project: Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) for Dryland Cropping Systems of the Northwest

Location: Northwest Sustainable Agroecosystems Research

Project Number: 2090-11000-010-005-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2019
End Date: Jul 31, 2024

To strengthen and enhance ongoing research for the Cook Agronomy Farm Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) with emphasis on long-term assessment of soil health, nutrient cycling, crop performance, water quality and greenhouse gas emissions.

Field and laboratory based research on climate change and management impacts on soil health issues including carbon (C), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) cycling and flows, soil acidification, greenhouse gas fluxes, crop performance including nutrient use efficiency metrics and soil chemical balances associated with inputs and losses via crop, water, soil and air.
