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

Location: Northwest Sustainable Agroecosystems Research

Project Number: 2090-11000-008-28-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

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

Objective:
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.

Approach:
Field and laboratory based research on climate change and management impacts on soil health issues including C, N, 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.
