1PlotPlot
2Treatment vegetation typeIndicates plot vegetation typeP=prairie, H=hay, B=bareground, C=corn
3Treatment Treatments applied to plot C=control/nothing added, T=treated/contaminants and nitrogen fertilizer applied
4YearField season in which the harvest occurred (YYYY)
5SampleDate (YYYYMMDD)Date on which the plot was harvested
6HarvestTypeDifferentiates between a variety of harvest typesWhole Plot Harvest=Entire plot mowed with a sicklemower and biomass collected, StubbleHarvest=conducted after a whole plot harvest to determine amount of biomass left behind using hand clippers to harvest 2 strips in each plot, CornKernelEstimate=done differently in 2008 and 2009, Mow Rake=only done in 2007, sicklemower strip=only done in 2007
7BiomassTypeIndicates whether biomass was harvested from Aboveground or Belowground (roots)
8RepIf there were replicate samples or values taken (i.e. the two stubble strips) dimensionless
9SampleAreaLengthEW_mThe length of the area harvested, measured from East to West ends of the plotmeter
10SampleAreaWidthNS_mThe width of the area harvested measured from the North to South ends of the plotmeter
