Description

Location: IN - India
This dataset represents the production of 1 kg of fresh Chickpea during September, 2016- January, 2017 at a farm located in village Chandragadh, District Surendranagar of Gujarat. In this area, fields are irrigated using electric pump for surface irrigation. The farm has a yield of 2900 kg fresh matter per ha for this crop cycle. Sowing date for the crop is 02-October, 2016 and harvesting date is 09-January, 2017. Mineral NP fertilizer input is 77-51 kg/ha. Organic fertilizer applied amounts to 14,000 kg of compost from cattle dung. Insecticide used has active ingredient as Dimethoate 104g/ha, Chlorpyrifos 137.55g/ha, Monocrotophos 79.80g/ha. Machinery is used for soil cultivation, other work processes with fuel consumption of 72 kg/ha, and 6.40 kg/ha respectively.
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.
