In 2010 we continued a paired treatment – control experiment at the Agricultural Research Service’s Southern Plains Range Research Station (SPRRS). The ongoing experiment compared energy and carbon fluxes and from a field planted to switchgrass (a potential biofuel crop), with fluxes from winter wheat.
