2008-10-20 Harvest 2008 corn harvest took place between October 20-21, 2008. Harvested corn in the LTER main site T1 and T2 plots, all reps. T3 and T4 plots were harvested on November 3, 2008. Please see notes below for specific dates for individual harvest dates for specific plots. Plots harvested on October 20, 2008 were: T1R6, T2R6, T2R1, T1R3, T1R2, and T1R4. Plots harvested on October 21, 2008 were: T1R1, T1R5, T2R2, T2R5, T2R3, and T2R4. Entire plot weight was determined by unloading corn from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. Number of corn rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Corn harvested was Pioneer 36W66 corn hybrid for T1, T2, and T3. Corn harvested for T4 was untreated Pioneer 36W66. At harvest each plot was split into two distinct sides, the west side and the east side. For 2008 the west side of each plot contained a headland pass across the entire width of the plot and 54 rows of corn located on the west side of each plot. The created headland was one pass across the headland with the JD 6 row corn head (15 feet wide). The reason that we need to create an artificial headland was because we needed more room to turn the combine around in the field/alleyways. Grain yield and moisture from treatments across all six replications were recorded. However, the standard agronomic yields recorded on the web page, for the year 2008, were taken only from the east side of the plots. The decision to post the yield from only the east side of the plots stems from the fact that on the west side of the plot contains a micro plot area. In northwest corner of treatments 1 and 2 are the micro plots that did not receive any weed control, cultivation or herbicides. Because of the competition from the weeds in the micro plots the decision was made to record the official yields from the east side of the plots. The micro plot area measures 50 ft (15 meters) from the north edge of the plots towards to south and 133.3 ft (40 meters) from the west edge of the plots towards the east. The micro plot area in treatments 1 and 2 that did not receive any weed control was mowed down before harvest.

2008-07-23 Harvest Harvested the wheat in the LTER main site T6 plots, reps: 1, 2, 4, 3, 5, and 6. Treatment 6 is normally planted to alfalfa however we planted wheat in the T6 plots in the fall of 2007 so that we would have a crop rotation between removing the old seeding of alfalfa and the new seeding of alfalfa. At harvest all wheat straw was chopped back onto the T6 plots.

Harvest dates for specific plots: T1R1: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T1R2: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T1R3: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T1R4: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T1R5: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T1R6: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T2R1: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T2R2: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T2R3: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T2R4: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T2R5: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T2R6: West and East side Oct. 9, 2006; T3R1: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T3R2: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T3R3: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T3R4: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T3R5: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T3R6: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T4R1: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T4R2: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T4R3: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T4R4: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T4R5: West and East side Oct. 10, 2006; T4R6: West side Oct. 10, 2006 and T4R6 East side Oct. 25, 2006.

2010-07-16 Harvest Harvested LTER Main Site Treatments T3 and T4 soft red winter wheat, (replications T3R4, T4R3, T3R2, T4R2, T3R3, T4R1, T3R1, T4R6 & T3R6). Harvest started at approximately 2:00 pm and finished at 9:30 pm. For all plots, collected the weight of grain in the east and west sides of the plot, percent moisture, and test weight. The west side of plot consisted of a headland (15' wide) pass along both the north and south side of the plot and then the remaining west half of the plot. The east side of the plot consisted of the remaining half of the plot. The number of rows of grain in both the east and west sides of the plot were counted and marked prior to harvesting. Wheat was combined off the plots using a John Deere 9410 combine. Weights were determined using a Unverferth weigh wagon equipped with weigh cells. Moistures were determined using a portable Dicky John grain analysis computer.

2007-07-10 Harvest 2007 wheat harvest took place between July 9-10, 2007. Please see notes below for specific dates for individual harvest dates for specific plots. Straw was put in windrows behind the combine in T1 and T2 plots so that the straw could be baled and removed from the plots. Straw was chopped back onto the T3 and T4 plots. The chopper is part of the combine when you do not want to bale straw you engage the chopper to chop all the straw behind the combine. Wheat was combined off the plots using a John Deere 9410 combine. Weights were determined using a Unverferth weigh wagon equipped with weigh cells. Moistures were determined using a portable Dicky John grain analysis computer. For all plots, collected the weight of grain in the east and west sides of the plot, percent moisture, and test weight. At harvest each plot was split into two distinct sides, the west side and the east side. The west side of plot consisted of a headland (15' wide) pass along the north and south side of each plot and then the remaining west half of the plot. The east side of the plot consisted of the remaining half of the plot. The number of rows of wheat in both the east and west sides of the plot were counted and marked prior to harvesting. The reason that we need to create an artificial headland was because we needed more room to turn around the combine. Grain yield and moisture from all treatments across all six replications were recorded. However, the standard agronomic yields recorded on the web page, for the year 2007, were taken only from the east side of the plots. The decision to post the yield from only the east side of the plots stems from the fact that on the west side of the plot contains a micro-plot area. In northwest corner of treatments 1 and 2 are the micro-plots that did not receive any weed control, cultivation or herbicides. Because of the competition from the weed in the micro-plots the decision was made to record the official yields from the east side of the plots. The micro plot area measures 50 ft (15 meters) from the north edge of the plots towards to south and 133.3 ft (40 meters) from the west edge of the plots towards the east. The micro-plot area in treatments 1 and 2 that did not receive any weed control was mowed down before harvest. Harvest dates for specific plots: T1R1: west and east side July 9, 2007; T1R2: west and east side July 10, 2007; T1R3: west and east side July 10, 2007; T1R4: west and east side July 9, 2007; T1R5: west and east side July 9, 2007; T1R6: west and east side July 10, 2007; T2R1: west and east side July 10, 2007; T2R2: west and east side July 9, 2007; T2R3: west and east side July 9, 2007; T2R4: west and east side July 9, 2007; T2R5: west and east side July 9, 2007; T2R6: west and east side July 10, 2007; T3R1: west and east side July 10, 2007; T3R2: west and east side July 10, 2007; T3R3: west and east side July 10, 2007; T3R4: west and east side July 10, 2007; T3R5: west and east side July 10, 2007; T3R6: west and east side July 10, 2007; T4R1: west and east side July 10, 2007; T4R2: west and east side July 10, 2007; T4R3: west and east side July 10, 2007; T4R4: west and east side July 10, 2007; T4R5: west and east side July 10, 2007; T4R6: west and east side July 10, 2007.

2015-07-24 Harvest Cleaned up wheat in Biodiversity Plots

2015-09-30 Harvest Harvested soybeans on the LTER Main Site between September 30, and October 2, 2015, treatments T1, T2, and T3; all replications. Please notes below for specific dates for individual harvest dates for each specific plot. Number of soybean rows harvested from both east and west sides were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Plot weight was determined by unloading soybeans from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. At harvest each plots were divided into two distinct sides, the west side and the east side. With 15' of the north and south ends 'headland passes of each plot being included in the west side data. The west side of each plot contained a headland pass across the entire width of the plot on the north and south end of each plot and ~ 107-110 rows of soybeans for T1-T3 and 54 rows for T4 located on the west side of each plot. The created headland was one pass across both north and south headland with the JD 9410 combine with a grain head (15 feet wide). The reason that we need to create an artificial headland was because we needed more room to turn the combine around. Grain yield and moisture from treatments 1-4 across all six replications were recorded. However, the standard agronomic yields recorded on the web page were taken only from the east side of the plots. The decision to post the yield from only the east side of the plots stems from the fact that on the west side of the plot contains a micro plot area and headland passes. In northwest corner of treatments 1 and 2 are the micro plots that did not receive any weed control, cultivation or herbicides. Because of the competition from the weed in the micro plots the decision was made to record the official yields from the east side of the plots. The micro plot area measures 50 ft (15 meters) from the north edge of the plots towards to south and 133.3 ft (40 meters) from the west edge of the plots towards the east. The micro plot area in treatments 1 and 2 that did not receive any weed control was mowed down before harvest.

2009-11-03 Harvest GLBRC Soybean Harvest

2009-11-05 Harvest GLBRC Soybean Harvest

2009-11-06 Harvest GLBRC Soybean Harvest

2016-07-12 Harvest Harvested LTER Main Site Treatments T1 and T2 soft red winter wheat, T1 all replications were harvested on July 12, 2016. T2R6 was harvested on July ?, 2016. Before harvest we removed 'harvested' a 15' headland pass on all north and south end of each plot. The grain harvested from the 'headland pass' was not recorded as weight of grain removed from each plot. The reason for the 15' headland pass on both end of each plot was so that we would have room to turn the combine around in the alleyway. We harvested 10 passes with the combine on each side of the plot. i.e. harvested 10 passes on the east side of the plot and harvested 10 passes on the west side of the plots. We record a weight from all the east and west sides of all the plots however all the plot weights were joined and one weight was recorded from each plot. 2016 was the first year that the harvest plot weight was from the entire plot area not just the weight from the east side of each plot. The amount of wheat harvested from each plot would not fit into the JD 9410 grain tank so we split the plots in half (based on number of passes needed to harvest each plot). 2016 was the first year that the harvest plot weight was from the entire plot area not just the weight from the east side of each plot. For all plots one wheat grain sample was collected to be used to analyze for percent moisture and test weight of the wheat grain. Straw was wind-rowed behind the combine so that we could bale and remove the straw from all T1 and T2 plots. Total number of wheat rows were determined prior to harvesting the wheat to determine the width of the area harvested. At planting time in fall of 2015 we made 19 passes with a 15' JD 1590 grain drill. 15' * 12"/ft = 180". 180" / 7.5" per row = 24 rows of wheat planted at each pass. 24 rows of wheat each pass * 19 passes per plot = 456 rows of wheat planted in each plot. A John Deere 9410 combine was used to harvest the wheat from all the plots. Weight of the wheat grain was determined using a Unverferth weigh wagon equipped with weigh cells on the axle and tough of the wagon. Moisture of the grain was determined using a portable Dicky John grain analysis computer.

Dates plots were harvested: October 18, 2017: T1R1, T1R2, T1R3, T1R4, T2R1, T2R2, T2R3, T2R3, T3R1, T3R2, T3R3, and T3R4. October 19, 2017: T1T5 T1R6, T2R5 T2R6, T3R5, T3R6, T4R1, T4R2, T4R3, T4R4, T4R5, and T4R6. Before harvest we removed 'harvested' a 15' headland pass on all north and south end of each plot. The grain harvested from the 'headland pass' was not recorded as weight of grain removed from each plot. The reason for the 15' headland pass on both end of each plot was so that we would have room to turn the combine around in the alleyway. We record a weight from all the east and west sides of all the plots however all the plot weights were joined and one weight was recorded from each plot. 2016 was the first year that the harvest plot weight was from the entire plot area not just the weight from the east side of each plot. 2017 was the second year (first year for corn) that the weight from each plot was from the entire plot area not just the weight from the east side of each plot. Total number of corn rows were determined prior to harvesting the corn to determine the width of the area harvested. At planting time in spring of 2017 we made 19 passes with a 15' JD 1730 corn planter (30 inch rows). 19 * 6 rows/pass = 114 rows. Corn was harvested with a John Deere 9410 combine. Plot weight was determined by unloading corn from the combine in to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co., equipped with three load (weigh) cells. The three load cells are located on the axle and tow tongue (hitch) of the wagon. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Corn variety harvested was (Dekalb DKC52-84 RIB) corn hybrid in T1, T2, and T3 plots. Corn variety harvested was ? in T4 plots. Estimated harvest time was from 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time).

2017-10-20 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC G1, G2, and G4 plots, all reps on October 20, 2017. Entire plot weight was determined by unloading corn from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. Number of corn rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Each plot had 24 rows of corn harvested has the main plot harvest data. Six rows on each side of each plot were harvested with the Kincaid plot combine and was not included in the total plot weight. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Corn harvested was G1 (Dekalb DKC52-84 RIB) corn hybrid and G2 and G4 (Pioneer P9188AMX) corn hybrid. Estimated harvest time was from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time). Harvested corn in the bait crop around the GLBRC site, 'rep 6' plots (3 east plots), area by the brown house, and the north half of the old productively study. Estimated harvest time to harvest the bait crop was from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time).

2017-11-10 Harvest Harvested soybeans in the GLBRC G3, all reps (1, 2, 3, 5, and 4) on November 10, 2017 (yes, November 10th we had so much rain in October we could not harvest them before November). Entire plot weight was determined by unloading soybeans from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. Number of soybean rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Each plot had 51 rows of soybeans harvested as the main plot harvest data. Eleven rows on each side (micro-plot area) of each plot were harvested with the Kincaid plot combine and was not included in the total plot weight. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Soybeans harvested in G3 were (Pioneer P22T69R). Estimated harvest time was from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time). Harvested soybeans in the bait crop around the GLBRC site, 'rep 6' plots (2 west plots), and north half of the ('old' Productivity study area). Amount of soybeans harvested in the bait crop area: The two 'rep 6' plots were 1040 lbs at 16.1% moisture and 55.0 lbs/bu (test weight). Amount of soybeans harvested in the bait crop area: The soybean bait crop around the GLBRC main plots, which consisted of one strip on beans (south strip) on the north side of the field and two strips on the east and south strips (both east and south strips of beans in the two outer strips i.e. of the three bait strips on the east side we had soybeans in the west and east strips of the three strips of beans. On the south side of the three bait strips we had soybeans in the north and south strips of beans). Also we had beans in the north half of the 'old' Productivity study area. Total amount harvested in the five strips of beans and 'old' productivity study was 8140 lbs at 16.1 % moisture and 52.9 lbs/bu (test weight). Estimated harvest time to harvest the bait crop was from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time).

2018-07-17 Harvest Harvested wheat plots to clean up plots after yield harvest with the Kincaid

2018-10-05 Harvest Harvested corn in G1.

2018-10-09 Harvest Harvested soybeans on the LTER Main Site between October 9, and October 10, 2018, treatments T1, T2, and T3; all replications. Please notes below for specific dates for individual harvest dates for each specific plot. Number of soybean rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Plot weight was determined by unloading soybeans from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. At harvest each plot was harvested as one plot area (was not harvested with the west side and the east side). Before harvesting the plot area we harvested a 15' 'headland pass' on the north and south end of each plot. The 'headland pass' area was not included in the harvested data area. The west side of each plot contained a headland pass across the entire width of the plot on the north and south end of each plot and ~ 107-110 rows of soybeans for T1-T3 and 54 rows for T4 located on the west side of each plot. The created headland was one pass across both north and south headland with the JD 9410 combine with a grain head (15 feet wide). The reason that we need to create an artificial headland was because we needed more room to turn the combine around. Grain yield and moisture from treatments 1-4 across all six replications were recorded. The micro plot area measures 50 ft (15 meters) from the north edge of the plots towards to south and 133.3 ft (40 meters) from the west edge of the plots towards the east. The micro plot area in treatments 1 and 2 that did not receive any weed control was mowed down before harvest. Harvest dates for specific plots: October 9, 2018: T1R1, T1R2, T1R3, T1R4; T2R1, T2R2, T2R3, T2R4, T2R5, and T2R6; T3R1, T3R2, T3R3, T3R4. October 10, 2018: T1R5 and 7 passes on the west side of T3R5. October 16, 2018: The remaining east side of T3R5, T3R6, and T1R6. T4: October ?, 2018.

2018-10-18 Harvest Harvested soybeans in LTER Main Site, treatments T4 all replications, reps: 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. Entire plot weight was determined by unloading soybeans from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. A 15' 'headland' pass from the north and south ends were harvested before the plots. The 'headland pass' was not included in the plot weight. Number of soybean rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Viking Organic Soybean Seed Variety ? , certified organic soybean seed is what was being harvested.

2019-10-29 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC treatment G1 and bait crop corn (very east plot rep 6, outside perimeter on south and east side and inside perimeter on north side as well as north half of old productivity study).

Number of corn rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Each plot had 24 rows of corn harvested has the main plot harvest data. Six rows on each side of each plot were harvested with the Kincaid plot combine and was not included in the total plot weight. Moisture and test weights were determined using grain analysis moisture tester.

2019-11-04 Harvest Harvested corn and soybeans in the lysimeter field today.
