    "A history of Turfgrass Science at The Pennsylvania State University. The turfgrass program at Penn State began in 1929 with a push from outside the institution. Joseph Valentine and several fellow superintendents from Philadelphia area golf courses traveled to The Pennsylvania State College and made a request directly to the president for the initiation of a turfgrass research and educational program. They stated that they wanted to have their needs addressed the same way farmers were being served through the agricultural programs in place at that time. The president immediately agreed to their request. Within a few days, Burt Musser, a young red clover breeder in the Department of Agronomy, was assigned the responsibility for initiating such a program. In time, this half-time assignment involving a single individual expanded to become one of the largest and most prestigious turfgrass programs in the United States. Today, nine faculty members from the Departments of Crop and Soil Sciences (formerly Agronomy), Plant Pathology, and Entomology, as well as a large number of support staff and graduate assistants, are involved in turfgrass research and education at Penn State."

  5. The Pennsylvania Phosphorus Index: Version 1 [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Increased attention has been focused on phosphorus (P) management because of water quality concerns resulting from eutrophication. In freshwater systems, elevated P inputs can lead to accelerated eutrophication and degraded water quality. Despite water quality concerns, adequate levels of soil P must be maintained to promote optimal crop production. Therefore, management options for P must be flexible to address agronomic concerns while providing water quality protection."
