Sustainable Dryland Farming Database (CROPSYS)
The Northwest Dryland Cereal/Legume Cropping Systems Database is a compilation of research and experience in dryland agriculture in the northwestern U.S. collected over the past 100 years. Database topics include crop rotation, legumes and grasses, soil quality, soil fertility, tillage and erosion, economics, pests, and alternate crops. Land grant experiment station reports, USDA reports, and old books on dryland agriculture are catalogued in CROPSYS, as well as more current information from scientific journals, popular magazines, farmer experience, and unpublished materials. Most entries include an interpretive abstract.
A primary function of CROPSYS is to identify and locate references that are not catalogued in most contemporary bibliographic databases. For example, someone interested in using black medic in a cropping system can find information from university dissertations and seed company literature, and research results reported in conference proceedings. Most of these resources are not catalogued elsewhere. The database uses full text search.
