Process Name apply fertilizer; no broadcast, spot sprayer, cotton; at farm
Category Agriculture, forestry and fishing - ISIC 0161: Support activities for crop production
Location US-AZ
Geography Comment The process is assumed to be operated in the State of Arizona.
Quantitative Reference apply fertilizer; no broadcast, spot sprayer, cotton; at farm
Start Date 2014-01-01
End Date 2014-12-31
Date description Start and end dates were chosen to match the equipment data in the USDA LCA Commons.
Technology Description Data for 1 ha represent the number of passes for each type of implement. Included processes represent the mix of implements using no broadcast application equipment. All flows are to or from the technosphere.


Process Type UNIT_PROCESS
Data completeness To the best of the knowledge of the authors, all intermediate flows are accounted. Because this process represents the mix of implements used, there are no flows to or from the environment.
Data treatment Data development is demonstrated by parameterization (explicitly presents raw data and calculations). Flow data quality is presented according to the LCA Commons convention as described in Cooper, J.S., E. Kahn, Commentary on issues in data quality analysis in life cycle assessment. International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment 17(4) 499-503 (2012).
Sampling procedure Boundary conditions are defined to represent typical operations for the crop and at the state level. Uncertainty and variability are not considered.
Data collection period Unit process data were compiled from 2013-2015.
