OMS01 Microbial and soil data in the Belowground Plot Experiment at konza prairie since 2017

Summary

Short name: 

OMS01

Abstract: 

Data describe the soil chemistry and microbial diversity at the Belowground Plot Experiment (BGP) from the 2017 summer growing season. Whole plot-scale nitrogen fertilization at the BGP ceased in 2017. Four subplots within each historically fertilized plot were established to continue the annual fertilization treatment for soil chemistry and microbial diversity.
