Description

Briefly, this dataset includes ecophysiological and yield measurements from a two-site-year study of maize grown following five functionally diverse cover crop treatments under imposed drought conditions. The experiment is described in detail in the following publications: - Hunter, M., A. Kemanian, D. Mortensen. 2021. Cover Crops and Drought: Maize Ecophysiology and Yield Dataset. Data in Brief 35:106856. - Hunter, M., A. Kemanian, D. Mortensen. 2021. Cover crop effects on maize drought stress and yield. Agriculture, Ecosystems, and the Environment 311:107294. - Hunter M. 2018. Sustainable intensification and climate resilience: Cover crops, soil improvement, and drought. Ph.D. dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University.
