ARDN (Agricultural Research Data Network) annotations for "TERRA-REF Season 4 and 6 Sorghum phenotypes and agronomic metadata in BrAPI format". The ARDN project ( is a network of datasets harmonized and aggregated using the ICASA vocabulary, as recommended by USDA NAL ( and described in detail here:

ARDN provides dataset annotations which facilitate interoperability. For information on how to use ARDN annotations and other data products, see

This data represents a small subset of the TERRA-REF release available on Dryad (LeBauer et al 2020, In addition to harvested biomass for each cultivar, it includes plot location, planting date, harvest date, fertilizer application, genotype / accession names and metadata, and additional agronomic management metadata for a population of Sorghum bicolor evaluated over two growing seasons. Please refer to the parent dataset for additional information on experimental details.

Resources in this dataset:

  • Resource Title: ARDN SC2 for TERRA-REF Season 4 and 6 data.

    File Name: sc2.json

    Resource Description: ARDN sidecar 2 file which allows dataset to be automatically interpreted and translated to end user formats.
