Technical Abstract: SoyFACE is the first FACE experiment to focus on a seed legume and on corn and the first to explore the interactions of both e[CO2] and e[O3] on the growth and development of an arable crop. The intent of the SoyFACE experiment is to orchestrate a coordinated and comprehensive investigation of the impact of atmospheric change on this expansive agroecosystem addressing questions ranging from rhizosphere biology through to seed composition and employing techniques from genomics to micrometeorology. SoyFACE completed its 5th season of operation in 2005. This presentation provides a description of the SoyFACE facility and its operation and overviews the highlights from the 2001 through 2005 growing seasons.
