Name: truck - for hauling

2000-06-01 Harvest Cut Alfalfa in the Lysimeter area. June 1, 2000: mowed alfalfa in the lysimeter field. June 2, 2000: raked and chopped alfalfa in the lysimeter field. Not sure who complete this work or what equipment was used. Either Joe S. or John S. mowed the alfalfa in the lysimeter field. Joe S. or John S. most likely raked the alfafla; The KBS dairy chopped the alfalfa out of the lysimeter field.

2005-06-02 Harvest Mick chopped the alfalfa on the main site treatment 6 replications 1, 2, and 3. Jim B. drove the truck to haul the alfalfa and Matt packed the bunker soil.

2010-10-22 Harvest Baled corn stover from all reps of G1 and G3 in the GLBRC. Plots were first cut and windrowed with John Deere 4995 Discbine. Windrowed stover material was collected and baled with the JD 7420a tractor and JD 385 round baler. Bales were loaded onto a trailer and taken to the KBS Dairy to be weighed. Each bale had three moisture readings taken using a hand-held Farmex® DHT-1 Digital Hay Tester with 32” Probe.

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.

2008-11-04 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC G1 and G2 plots.

2010-10-14 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC today G1 and G3 plots, all reps.

2013-07-25 Harvest Baled straw from the LTER Main Site Treatments T1 and T2, all replications. Straw from the wheat harvest was cut one day before it was baled except for rep 6. Each plot was then individually round baled. In most plots, multiple round bales were made; at the end of each plot remaining straw in the baler was baled regardless of the size of the bale. Bales were removed during harvest and weighed to determine the amount of straw per plot.

2013-07-26 Harvest Baled straw from the LTER Lysimeter field. Straw from the wheat harvest was left to dry in the sun for 2 days then was round baled. Bales were removed and weighed to determine the amount of straw within that field. There was 14 bales picked up that totaled 7900 lbs.

2008-11-03 Harvest Harvested corn in the LTER main site T3 and T4 plots, all reps. T1 and T2 plots were harvested on October 20-21, 2008. Entire plot weight was determined by unloading corn from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co.

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.

2006-10-10 Harvest 2006 soybean harvest took place between October 9-25, 2006. Because of rain during October of 2006 the east side of T4R6 was not harvested until October 25, 2006. Please see notes below for specific dates for individual harvest dates for specific plots. At harvest each plot was split into two distinct sides, the west side and the east side. For 2006 the west side of each plot contained a headland pass across the entire width of the plot and ~ 109-111 rows of soybeans for T1 and T2 plots, T3 and T4 plots had 60 rows located on the west side of each plot. The created headland was one pass across the headland with the JD grain head (15 feet wide). For 2006 the east side of each plot had ~ 109-111 rows of soybeans for T1 and T2 plots, T3 and T4 plots had 54 rows located on the east side of each plot. Soybeans harvested were NKS20-F8 for T1, T2, T3, and T4. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. 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 treatments 1-4 across all six replications were recorded. However, the standard agronomic yields recorded on the web page, for the year 2006, 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.

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.

2006-06-08 Harvest Mowed alfalfa in LTER T6 plots. The Dairy chopped the alfalfa on June 9, 2006.

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.

2001-06-08 Harvest Lysimeter alfalfa field was chopped today. The KBS Dairy chopped the alfalfa.

2004-07-13 Harvest 2004 wheat harvest took place between July 12-15, 2004. 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.

At harvest each plot was split into two distinct sides, the west side and the east side. 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 2004, 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 12, 2004; T1R2: west and east side July 13, 2004; T1R3: west and east side July 13, 2004; T1R4: west and east side July 13, 2004; T1R5: west and east side July 12, 2004; T1R6: west and east side July 13, 2004; T2R1: west and east side July 13, 2004; T2R2: west and east side July 12, 2004; T2R3: west and east side July 12, 2004; T2R4: west and east side July 12, 2004; T2R5: west and east side July 12, 2004; T2R6: west and east side July 13, 2004; T3R1: west and east side July 13, 2004; T3R2: west and east side July 13, 2004; T3R3: west and east side July 14, 2004; T3R4: west and east side July 14, 2004; T3R5: west and east side July 15, 2004; T3R6: west and east side July 15, 2004; T4R1: west side July 13, 2004 and east side July 14, 2004; T4R2: west and east side July 13, 2004; T4R3: west and east side July 13, 2004; T4R4: west and east side July 14, 2004; T4R5: west and east side July 14, 2004; T4R6: west and east side July 15, 2004.

2007-07-05 Harvest Harvested wheat from the lysimeter field today.

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.

2016-10-12 Harvest Harvested soybeans in GLBRC G4 plots, all reps. 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. 11 rows on each side of each plot was 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 were Pioneer ? RR.

2016-10-12 Harvest Harvested soybeans in GLBRC bait crop along the inside edge and also the first 2 plots to the east of the miscanthus in rep 6.

2016-10-24 Harvest Corn Micro-plot harvest. Harvested GLBRC G1 corn from the micro-plot area, all reps, (plus corn stover, and minus corn stover micro plots)(west and east side of all plots). Harvested with the Kincaid plot combine. For each micro-plot all six rows were harvested (the six rows on the west and east side of each plot were harvested). The middle two rows of the six row micro-plot area was reported as the micro-plot yield. Plot weight and moisture were obtained from the on-board Mirus Harvest Master computer/software weighing system. Estimated harvest time was from 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time). Harvested Di's and Kate's micro-plot area in G1 reps 1, 2, 3, and 4 only. Micro-plot area was 15 ft (6 rows) by 50 ft.

2016-10-24 Harvest Harvested corn in the LTER Biodiversity Study and CE Study today. Biodiversity treatments and plots harvested: B5: plots 114, 217, 312, 405; B8: plots 118, 214, 310, 408; B11: plots 110, 216, 309, 411; B12 plots 109, 202, 313, 412; B15 plots 112, 213, 301, 415; B18 plots 108, 208, 311, 418. CE treatments and plots harvested: CE2 plots 112, 210, 312, 402. CE1 plots were fallow during 2016 growing season so no harvest from the CE1 plots in 2016. CE1 plots were fallow for a project from the Landis Lab with Monarch butterflies. CE1 plots 108, 202, 304, 401. Two rows of corn spaced 30 inches apart and 90 feet long were harvested. Harvested with the Kincaid 8XP plot combine. Plot weight and moisture content were determined by the the the on-board Mirus Harvest Master computer/software weighing system. Brook Wilke harvested the remaining rows of corn in the biodiversity October 25, 2016 with the JD 9410 combine.

2016-11-07 Harvest Harvested GLBRC Switchgrass Fertility Study (Switchgrass N-rate Study), all replications. In 2016 the H1 and H2 harvest timing of the Switchgrass Fertility Study were only harvested once. We did harvest and record plot weights from all H1 and H2 separately however the H2 plots were not harvested in July. Harvested with JD 7330 tractor using the 7.5 ft wide Kemper head and Wintersteiger biomass harvester weighing system. The middle 7.5 ft of each plot was harvested. Plot weight were obtained from the on-board Mirus software by Harvest Master computer weighing system, by Juniper Systems. Cutting height of plant stubble was 4 - 6 inches. Grab samples from each rep was placed in paper bags weighed for wet weight and placed in plant dryer and reweighed to determine percent moisture for each treatment and replication. Harvested the remaining plot area on November 1?, 2016 with the JD 7350 chopper (Justin Mezo) and MSU truck # 1270 (Ryan Anthony).

2016-11-11 Harvest Mowed and baled stover at Marshall Farm corn field (M1). ~ 82 total bales were taken from the field. 10:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. was baling time. Does not include set up and travel time. Matt removed bales from the field on Saturday and Monday (Gary helped on Monday).

2016-10-10 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC G2 and G3 plots, all reps. 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 G2 and G4 (Pioneer P8906AM) corn hybrid. Estimated harvest time was from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon (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: 12 rows of corn harvested on the south and east sides of the bait crop area. The 12 rows were the 30' most southern area and the 30' most eastern area of the bait crop area. Keep are area on ~ 100' on the south side and eastern side for hunting blinds. We did not harvest any of the northern bait crop area today. Estimated harvest time to harvest the bait crop was from 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time).

2017-12-13 Observation Placed around 370 yards of gravel on the 'lane' or 'road' that goes from the KBS FSC farm to the GLBRC intensive site. Started on Wednesday December 13, 2017 and finished Thursday December 14, 2017. Purpose for more gravel: To help stabilize the road after rain or any moisture. Road would become sticky and muddy after rainfall or moisture. Gravel was added to help equipment, trucks, and other equipment have better access to the GLBRC plots. Having the new road will allow staff to stay off 40th St. (busy road for farm and lab equipment). Source of gravel: Carpenter Gravel, Inc. Delton, MI (269) 721-9989 Type of gravel: 22A stabilized road gravel. Carpenter Gravel delivered the gravel in 10 yards trucks (two of them), they spread the gravel out as best as they could coming out of the tailgate of the trucks. We moved/leveled the gravel around with the loader on the JD 7420b tractor.

2021-10-20 Harvest Harvested soybeans on the LTER Main Site on October 20, 2021, treatment T4, all replications. T4R2 was harvested on October 19, 2021. 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 (plots were NOT harvested with the west side and the east side). Before harvesting the plot area we harvested a 20' 'headland pass' on the north and south end of each plot. The 'headland pass' area was NOT included in the harvested data area. The reason that we need to create an 'artificial' headland was because we needed more room to turn the combine around. The current 30 ft grass alleyway is not enough room to turn the combine around. Yes, we harvested a 20' 'headland pass' not a 15' headland pass as was the case with T1 and T2 plots in 2021. The new grain head is 20' wide not 15' wide so the 'headland pass' harvested was 20' NOT 15'. Grain yield and moisture from treatments across all six replications were recorded. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Kellogg Dairy Staff help move and unload soybeans form trucks and wagons.

2021-10-22 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC treatment G1 and bait crop corn in plot 603 (did not harvest the bait crop around the perimeter woods yet). 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 (these six rows are recorded as micro-plot yield data). Moisture and test weights were determined using grain analysis moisture tester. Moisture and test weights were determined using a Dicky-john GAC2100b grain analysis moisture tester.

2022-11-09 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC treatment G1 and bait crop corn in plots 604 and 605, and bait crop around the perimeter woods. 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.
