Preferred Term:

Long-Term Agroecosystem Research Network

It is a partnership among 18 premier long-term research sites across the United States. LTAR was established to build the knowledge required for sustainable intensification of agriculture, increasing yields from the current agricultural land base while minimizing or reversing agriculture’s adverse environmental impacts. Network research is organized around topics of sustainability of regional or national consequence, relying upon long-term databases, cross-site experiments, and computational modeling to tie experimental and monitoring conclusions from diverse locations to a broader vision of agriculture for the United States.
