A never-ending season
The LTCCE recently marked its 150th rice cropping season, making it one of the longest-running agricultural experiments in the world. It measures trends in yield and soil properties over its lifetime as indicators of the sustainability of continuous rice cropping on flooded soil. The data being collected from the LTCCE might not directly resonate with the public, but this experiment could actually answer perhaps the most important question of our time: how to sustain production of enough rice for a growing population?
