The objective of this experiment was to determine if various small grains can be discriminated from each other based on their spectral reflectance. The experiment includes four winter wheat varieties and one variety each of barley, rye, and triticale.
This experiment was a continuation of the Small Grains Kansas Experiments for 1974-75 and 1975-76 and is also related to the small Grains North Dakota Experiments done at the Williston, North Dakota Agriculture Experiment Station during 1975, 1976 and 1977. These data were collected as a part of the LACIE Field Measurements Project. More information can be found in the LACIE Field Measurements Project Plan, 1976-77 and in the LACIE Field Measurements Data Library Catalog, Volume III, 1976-77 Crop Year.
The test took place in 1977.
The supporting docs include a brief summary of used instruments, a wavelength table (Wavelength_ASCII.txt), reflectance note and reflectance tables (ReflectanceTable206.txt and ReflectanceTableMulti.txt), and file format description (ExperimentDataFormat3.txt). The format description file is in ASCII format in lines of 80 characters.
This research dataset is part the Field Research Data Library that consists of over 200,000 spectral observations of soils and vegetation that have been collected since 1972 till 1991 as part of the research focused on vegetation and soils at the Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing (LARS) located at the Purdue University.
