  1. 100% Agronomy Facts 11: Inoculation of forage and grain legumes
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Legumes have the ability to form a mutually beneficial (symbiotic) relationship with certain soil bacteria of th type or "genus" . The benefit to the plant, and thus to the grower, is that these bacteria can take (fix) nitrogen from the air (in soil spaces) and make it available to the plant. The amount of nitrogen fixed can meet the needs of the plant and leave nitrogen in the soil for following crops."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "There are approximately 250,000 species of plants worldwide; of those, about 3 percent, or 8,000 species, behave as weeds. Of those 8,000, only 200 to 250 are major problems in worldwide cropping systems. A plant is considered a weed if it has certain characteristics that set it apart from other plant species."

    "Dairy farm businesses that produce their own crops need to recognize that their labor and managment requirements increase dramatically during planting and harvest times. "

  4. 87% Agronomy Facts 6: Comparing Fertilizing Materials
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nutrients are often a limiting factor for plant growth. Under natural conditions, an equilibrium is established that depends on recyling of nutrients to meet plant needs. This equilibrium is disturbed when agricultural crops are grown. Soils must provide greater amounts of plant nutrients than would be needed for natural vegetation. Also, a significant portion of the nutrients are no longer recycled but are removed in the harvested crops. Farmers must supply supplemental nutrients to the soils to ensure optimal crop growth. These supplemental nutrients come in many forms including fertilizers, animals manures, green manures, and legumes. This fact sheet concentrates on the properties of commonly used fertilizers that are important in achieving optimal plant growth."

  5. 87% Agronomy Facts 51: Starter Fertilizer
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Starter fertilizer is a small quantity of fertilizer nutrients applied in close proximity to the seed at planting. Starter fertilizers enhance the development of emerging seedlings by supplying essential nutrients in accessible locations near the roots. Rapid crop establishment is desirable since plant development and yield can be influenced during early growth stages. Also, fast-growing young plants generally are more resistant to insect and disease attacks and can compete with weeds more effectively. Readily available nutrients near young plants help ensure rapid early growth and the formation of large leaves, which are necessary for photosynthesis, subsequent growth processes, and earlier crop maturity."

  6. 87% Disease Management in Turf
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Disease in turfgrasses, as in other plants, develops from an interaction among a susceptible plant, a disease-producing organism (pathogen), and an environment favorable for disease development. Susceptible grasses and pathogens (usually fungi) are present in all lawns. In most cases, the pathogens exist in a dormant or saprophytic (feeding on dead or decaying substances) state and do not attack living plants. Diseases occur when environmental conditions (weather, management, and / or site conditions) become favorable for the build up of pathogen populations and / or cause an increase in the susceptibility of the plant. When this happens, turfgrass loss can occur."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Reed canarygrass ( L.) is a tall, leafy, high-yielding perennial. It is a cool-season grass which is greater in winterhardiness and more resistant to foliar diseases than other cool-season grasses grown in Pennsylvania. The plants spread and thicken from short rhizomes, creating a dense sod. If not grazed or clipped, plants will reach heights exceeding 6 feet under high fertility conditions."

  9. 83% 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."

  10. 83% Latest Planting Dates for Corn Hybrids in Pennsylvania [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Determining how late a particular corn hybrid can be planted in a specific environment is an important decision to minimize the risk of frost before the crop matures. This can be particularly important in Pennsylvania, where corn planting can frequently be delayed past the optimum date and where the length of the growing season can vary dramatically within a few miles."
