The LTAR Network

The Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Network is a new network developing national strategies for the sustainable intensification of agricultural production.

LTAR is a partnership among 18 premier long-term research sites across the United States.

The LTAR network has a multifaceted focus on satisfying increasing demand for agricultural commodities, protecting the quality of the environment, and enhancing the quality of life in rural areas and the Nation as a whole

This feed may have taken a break but #USLTAR research has continued non-stop! A huge THANK YOU goes out to all our followers and especially to all our network members. Stay tuned, the updates are about to resume...

Hi #ESA2020! Want to learn about a 25y survey of #Soil organic C and N changes up to 1m depth in 10 agroecosystems (Annual, Perennials & Forest) Check out my talk and leave questions! Session COS182 https://eco.confex.com/eco/2020/meetingapp.cgi/Paper/86752

The virtual #ESA2020 begins August 3. The "Jornada pack" below includes 23 presentations by Jornada scientists or that involve the Jornada @USLTER and @USLTAR programs. (I hope all were uploaded...). https://eco.confex.com/eco/2020/meetingapp.cgi/Search/0?sort=Relevance&size=10&page=1&searchterm=Jornada&ModelType=Paper

Years of watershed research in the Southern Great Plains sums up the effect of crop-livestock management versus plain, untended tallgrass prairie on runoff and water quality. Read about the @JEnvironQual research: http://ow.ly/hWoj50AAbOW
