- ... Core Ideas Soil nitrate was lower due to a cereal rye cover crop during the active growing season. Infiltration was greater for no‐till with rye cover crop than conventional tillage. After 17 years, no‐till with rye had greater soil organic C than conventional tillage in surface layers. Soil organic C did not differ between no‐till with rye and conventional tillage for subsurface layers. No‐till w ...

- ... The spatiotemporal variability of soil water content (SWC) at the remote sensing scale requires dense monitoring for calibration and validation. Here, we present an overview of the Texas Soil Observation Network (TxSON), an intensively monitored area in the semiarid rangelands of the central Texas Hill Country. TxSON is a dense network consisting of 40 in situ locations nested at 36, 9, and 3 km w ...
