Sustainable Corn Coordinated Agricultural Project Team Research Data

2015 CSCAP Team

This website contains biophysical research data measured across a set of experiments carried out by the Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project (CSCAP): Climate Change, Mitigation, and Adaptation in Corn-based Cropping Systems; or Sustainable Corn CAP.

The Sustainable Corn CAP was a transdisciplinary team funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA, Award No. 2011-68002-30190). The team spanned 9 states, 11 institutions, and 140 members with funding from 2011-2016 with Dr. Lois Wright Morton as project director and Lori Abendroth as project manager.

The team assessed the environmental and social economic impacts of climate variability on corn-based cropping systems. The project focused on ways to equip farmers with the practices that would build resiliency of the systems to increasing weather variability while maintaining crop yields and reducing negative environmental impacts.

The Sustainable Corn CAP team's annual reports, proposals, technical reports, and publications are available at the Iowa State University Digital Repository. The Sustainable Corn CAP research data are also stored at the USDA National Agricultural Library Ag Data Commons ( repository.
