  • Observations include short and longwave radiation, air temperature, humidity, wind, snow depth and all season precipitation.   
  • Land use in the area is predominantly annual cropping of oilseeds, cereals and pulses.
  • The site is especially valuable to study crop-water-climate responses to heavier soils with reduced moisture stress.
