  • Corangamite Soil Health Monitoring Program Data

    Federation University Australia

    A set of 100 soil health monitoring sites from across the Corangamite CMA region of Victoria. Two rounds of soil test analysis have been performed at each of the sites (in 2014 and 2018). Analysis of samples from 3 depths (0-10cm, 10-20cm and 20-30cm) taken in a paddock transect and bulked. One core sample also taken for each site. Generally, observations were made according to the conventions of Northcote (1979), Turvey (1987) and McDonald et al. (1990). Data includes pH, texture, bulk density EC, nutrients (P,K,N,S), exchangeable cations, trace elements and Carbon fractions (Mid infrared - MIR corrected)
  • Southern Farming Systems Moisture Probe Network Data

    Agricultural Research Federation (AgReFed)

    A network of ~75 telemetered soil moisture probes across Victoria and Tasmania. Data typically includes soil moisture and soil temperature readings at depths 300-1000mm (at 100mm intervals, and a summed 300-1000mm). Soil moisture and soil temperature (100mm, 200mm), precipitation, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, relative humidity and air temperature are also available at select locations. Dataset ranges from 2011 to current date, however no timeline is guaranteed for any one site.
  • UWA/DPIRD Frost Nursery Trial 2018

    The University of Western Australia

    Data from UWA/DPIRD Frost Nursery Trial 2018 including weather data, phenology data, UAV multispectral imaging (NVDI), ~90 protein and ~90 metabolite abundances.
  • SensorNets - SMART Farms Soil Moisture Network

    University of New England, Australia

    Soil moisture, soil temperature, soil EC and air temperature data from 100 monitoring nodes located across a portion of the UNE SMART farms property Kirby. Data collected at ~10min intervals.
  • Waite Permanent Rotation Trial

    Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation

    History: rotation phase for each plot from 1925 to 1993. Grain yield: for each plot from 1925 to 1993. Total dry matter: for each plot from 1925 to 1991. Pasture cuts: for each plot from 1950 to 1991. Pasture composition: for each plot from 1950 to 1991. Monthly climate data: from 1925 to 1993. Soil carbon data: measured total organic carbon (by combustion) and size fractions (by MIR-PLSR prediction) and delta 14C values for select plots for 1963, 1973, 1983 and 1993 for each of 0-10 cm and 10-22.5 cm depths.
  • CSIRO National Soil Site Database

    Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation

    The CSIRO National Soil Site database (Natsoil) currently contains descriptions of over 21, 000 soil site investigations. The data includes morphological descriptions, chemical, physical and mineralogical properties and spectral predictions, along with soil specimen management data. The database and The Australian National Soil Archive provide the foundation for the development of a national soil spectral library and also support TERN Landscapes national soil property modelling through a federated collation of available soil databases. Data is managed within the SQLServer environment, and made available via a Microsoft Access snapshot on request, which is assigned a new DOI. Up to date content is also available via an ANZSoilML complex WFS service. The database schema is based on the SITES V2 national standard. See supporting file.
