“The century experiment: the first twenty years of UC Davis’ Mediterranean agroecological experiment” available online!

This manuscript comes with a large 20-year dataset characterizing various physicochemical soil and crop productivity parameters over a twenty-year period at UC Davis’ long-term agricultural experiment station, otherwise known as “Russell Ranch”. Abstract. The Century Experiment at the Russell Ranch Sustainable Agriculture Facility at the University of California, Davis provides long-term agroecological data from row…

Trade-offs of 20 years of management on sequestration, stabilization, and stratification of soil organic matter

Soil carbon sequestration and nitrogen are hot topics in cropland management. The Russell Ranch Sustainable Agriculture Facility conducts decadal soil sampling across cropping systems that are part of the Century Experiment to investigate soil physicochemical dynamics over time, and results of our 20-year sampling were recently presented in a poster at the international tri-society ASA-SSSA-CSSA meeting.
