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

Location: Northwest Sustainable Agroecosystems Research

Project Number: 2090-11000-010-023-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 1, 2024
End Date: Jan 31, 2028

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, cropping systems modeling, stakeholder survey development, nutrient cycling, crop performance, water quality and greenhouse gas emissions.

Field, laboratory and cropping systems modeling 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. Stakeholder survey development consistent with national LTAR approach.
