92 Symposium--Rigor and Relevance in Semiarid Dryland Cropping Systems

Oral Session
ASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems
Data rigor and relevance will be explored in four thematic papers: 1) international agriculture, 2) farmer-conducted on-farm experimentation, 3) optimizing data access for long-term cropping systems studies, and 4) review of yield effects of no-till in the semiarid Great Plains.

Approved for 2.5 CM CEUs.
