Data File Layouts and Templates for NCDA&CS Agronomic Reports

When agronomic reports are downloaded in CSV (comma-separated value) form, an Excel spreadsheet opens. Sample data are presented in rows: one row of data for each sample. However, there are no explanatory headers for the data columns. To find descriptions for each data column, refer to the appropriate data file layout from the list below or cut and paste your report data into the appropriate Excel spreadsheet template.

* Note:  Excel, by default, changes some CSV text data into date format. This change happens primarily in predictive nematode reports in columns that list Nema Notes or contain small numerical ranges. There is a way to avoid this conversion, but it is somewhat awkward. This Web page provides an explanation.
