1SamplingNumber given to identify a specific sampling
2PlotPlot from which root ingrowth core samples were taken
3PlantTrtIdentifies the land-use type C=corn, P=prairie, H= hay, B=bareground
4ContaminantTrtIdentifies whether the plot has been treated with antibiotics and fertilizer or notT=treated, C=control
5In/Between RowsFor the corn plots, this indicates whether the core was taken within a corn row or between two rows; one of each of these types was taken in each of the corn plots
6SampleDateDate on which the sample was taken (YYYYMMDD)

8SampleInitialsInitials of the individual(s) who took the sample
9DateWashedDate on which the sample was washed (YYYYMMDD)
10InitialsInitial of the individual(s) who washed the sample
11WeighDateDate that the sample was weighed (YYYYMMDD)
12WeighTimeTime at which the sample was weighed (hmm)
