  1. 100% Conservation Tillage Series: Economics of Conservation Tillage [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "There are many potential economic advantages for reducing the number of tillage operations for crop enterprises. These include: 1) lower fuel costs due to fewer trips over the field, 2) reducing the amount of tillage equipment needed, which results in lower machinery investment, 3) lower labor requirements, which reduce hired labor costs or free up operator time for other farm operations, 4) reducing soil loss from water and wind erosion, and 5) conserving soil moisture."

  2. 97% 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. 97% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 10: Animal Waste Land Application Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Managing the land application of animal waste to protect water quality depends on applying rates based on crop requirements and soil conditions, knowing the composition of the animal waste, avoiding runoff from recent applications, and protecting the application areas from runoff and soil erosion. Runoff from fields and water leaching through soil can carry plant nutrients, soil, microorganisms, and other potential pollutants from the fields to surface water or groundwater."

  4. 81% Agronomy Facts 38B: A nutrient management approach for Pennsylvania: Plant nutrient stocks and flows
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Almost all decision-making in agriculture, in the boardrooms of industry or on the tractor seats of farms, affects the distribution of materials such as crops and manure within farms, and the movement of materials such as feeds and farm products to and from farms. Most common farm materials contain important plant nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, and are moved as part of the everyday activities of farming and agriculture. As a result, the many factors considered in each management decision affect plant nutrient distribution and have implications for nutrient management to meet the many expectations."

  5. 79% Agronomy Facts 63: Diagnosing Soil Compaction using a Penetrometer (soil compaction tester)
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soil compaction is a serious concern for farmers in Pennsylvania. Soil compaction can easily reduce crop yields by 10 percent, and can lead to water and soil quality degradation due to increased runoff and soil structure destruction. The continuous consolidation of farms means that herds are growing, more forage is harvested per farm, more manure is being produced, larger equipment is used to spread manure and harvest and transport forages and grain, and the opportunity to tailor field operations to optimum soil conditions for traffic is decreasing. Compaction is therefore an issue that will likely increase in importance in the years to come."

  6. 79% Nutrient management: Friend or Foe [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "There is the possibility to improve the whole farm nutrient balance and the public's perception of farming."

  7. 77% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Program Brochure [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The Pennsylvania Farm Evaluation Program (Pennsylvania Farm?A?Syst) is a voluntary farm evaluation that can be used to confirm that a farm is being managed in an environmentally sensitive way. Pennsylvania Farm?A?Syst also promotes an awareness of existing site conditions or management practices that threaten the quality of groundwater and surface water."

  8. 64% Agronomy Facts 14: Managing potassium for crop production [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "A corn crop takes up nearly as much potassium (K) as it does nitrogen (N), yet management of each nutrient is entirely different. Because only the K in the harvested portion of a crop is removed from a field, managing K for corn silage is different than for grain."

  9. 64% Agronomy Facts 23: Summer-Annual Grasses for Supplemental or Emergency Forage [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Shortages of forage crops in Pennsylvania most often occur during the summer, when dry conditions have reduced the productivity of pastures, hay crops, or silage corn fields. Summer-annual grasses, which maintain relatively high levels of production during hot and dry conditions, can greatly reduce the risk of inadequate forage production during the summer. They also can be used as an emergency forage source when production of corn and hay crops is likely to be less than adequate."

  10. 64% Agronomy Facts 53: The Early-season Chlorophyll Meter Test for Corn [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The chlorophyll meter is a portable, hand-held device that instantaneously measures the greenness (or that instantaneously measures the greenness (or that instantaneously measures the greenness (or that instantaneously measures the greenness (or chlorophyll content) of a plant in the field."
