  1. Agronomy Facts 46: Multiflora Rose Management in Grass Pastures (An Integrated Approach) [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The weed multiflora rose (, Thunb.) is an increasing problem in Pennsylvania pastures and noncropland. It thrives on idle land, fencerows, and low-maintained, hilly pastures. Originally introduced from Asia and promoted as a "living fence" to control erosion and provide food and cover for wildlife, multiflora rose quickly spread and is considered a noxious weed in Pennsylvania and surrounding states."

  2. Agronomy Facts 47: Controlling Yellow Nutsedge in Agronomic Crops (An Integrated Approach) [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Yellow nutsedge ( L.) is an aggressive perennial plant that is native to North America and Eurasia. It is a problem weed in field crops throughout the United States. This weed thrives in low, damp soils, but is also troublesome in cultivated fields and pastures of all soil types. Despite its widespread presence, yellow nutsedge can be effectively managed with a consistent integrated control program that combines cultural, mechanical, and chemical methods."

  3. Agronomy Facts 48: Forage Sorghum [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Forage sorghum is a large, warm-season, annual grass that is adapted to Pennsylvania and can be grown as a silage crop. Forage sorghum can be a profitable alternative crop, provided that it is managed well and used in the right situations. For instance, forage sorghum is cheaper to produce, has comparable yields, but has slightly lower forage quality when compared to corn for silage. The objective of this fact sheet is to describe some attributes of forage sorghum, provide some management recommendations, and describe the potential role of forage sorghum in the forage/livestock systems used on many Pennsylvania farms."

  4. Agronomy Facts 49: Successful Forage Crop Establishment
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Because of high costs, seeding forage crops is considered to be a "high stakes" farming operation. The days of spreading some seeds on the ground and hoping for nature to cooperate are past. Today, success is imperative. Forage producers must minimize risk as much as possible to ensure successful forage crop establishment. Here are some practices that can improve the success of forage crop seedings."

  5. Agronomy Facts 4: Johnsongrass and Shattercane Control [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Johnsongrass and shattercane are closely related grass weeds that are troublesome and persistent in row crops, where they reduce yield and quality. The rhizomes of johnsongrass and the dormant seeds of shattercane make these weeds difficult to control. They can be managed with a consistent integrated program combining preventive, cultural, mechanical, and chemical methods."
