USDA-ARS Colorado Maize Water Productivity Dataset 2008-2011

Metadata Updated: February 4, 2022

The USDA-Agricultural Research Service carried out a water productivity field trial for irrigated maize (Zea mays L.) at the Limited Irrigation Research Farm (LIRF) facility in northeastern Colorado in 2008 through 2011. The dataset includes daily measurements of irrigation, precipitation, soil water storage, and plant growth; daily estimates of crop evapotranspiration; and seasonal measurement of crop water use and crop yield. Soil parameters and hourly and daily weather data are also provided. The dataset can be useful to validate and refine maize crop models. The data are presented in spreadsheet format. The primary data files are the four annual LIRF Maize 20xx.xlsx files that include the daily water balance and phenology, final yield and biomass data, and crop management logs. Annual LIRF Weather 20xx.xlsx files provide hourly and daily weather parameters including reference evapotranspiration. The LIRF Soils.xlsx file gives soil parameters. Each spreadsheet contains a Data Descriptions worksheet that provides worksheet or column specific information. Comments are embedded in cells with specific information. A LIRF photos.pdf file provides images of the experimental area, measurement processes and crop conditions. Photo credit Peggy Greb, ARS; copyright-free, public domain copyright policy.
