  1. Agronomy Facts 55: Estimating Manure Application Rates [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Managing manure to optimize its economic returns and at the same time minimize its potential environmental impact is critical. All farmers in the state must manage their manure in compliance with the requirements of the Clean Streams Law. Concentrated animal operations also are required, under the more recent Nutrient Management Act, to have a formal, approved nutrient management plan."

  2. Agronomy Facts 56: Considerations for Double-cropping Corn Following Hay in Pennsylvania
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Double-cropping corn following the first cutting of hay can be an effective cropping strategy to maximize feed production on fields that are being rotated from hay to corn. Many crop producers in Pennsylvania routinely use this strategy with a good success rate, but it requires careful management. Without paying some attention to the details, you may obtain disappointing results. The objectives of this fact sheet are to review the advantages and disadvantages of double-cropping corn following hay and to provide some recommendations for improving the success rate of the practice."

  3. Agronomy Facts 57: Crop Rotation Planning for Dairy Farms
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Crop rotations can benefit dairy farms in many ways. An effective crop rotation meets the feed needs of the operation, improves crop yields, reduces pest problems, and effectively uses on-farm nutrients. Because the resources and needs of dairy farms differ, the best crop rotation for each farm also will vary. As farms expand and forage and nutrient manage-ment requirements change, crop rotations also can be refined and improved. Because many factors can influence crop rotations, planning decisions are often complex. The objective of this fact sheet is to review some potential benefits of crop rotations and provide some guidelines for using them as a tool to address various production problems."

    "Eastern black nightshade Dun.), an annual broadleaf plant, is an increasing weed problem in northeastern field crop production. It is native to the Americas and is commonly found throughout the United States east of the Rocky Mountains. Nightshade begins germinating in May and can continue throughout the growing season. Although it can cause crop yield reductions, more importantly it can interfere with the harvest and lower crop quality."

  5. Agronomy Facts 59: Managing Burcucumber in Agronomic Crops [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Burcucumber is a summer annual broadleaf weed that is becoming a serious problem in agronomic crops. Because of its prolonged seedling emergence and aggressive growth habit, burcucumber is not easily controlled using conventional weed-management strategies. Like most weeds, burcucumber can not be eradicated; however, an integrated control approach can reduce the size of burcucumber infestations and slow or stop the weed?s further spread."
