  1. 100% Soil Management Research Reports: Tillage Evaluation Study Landisville, Lancaster County [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Research in the early 1980?s showed that no-till produced lower yields than conventional till (moldboard or chisel plowed) at the Penn State Southeast Agricultural Research and Extension Center. However, research from similar agroecological zones shows no yield decrease in no-till corn compared to conventional tillage. Although the benefits of no-till have been confirmed in many studies in different parts of the USA, only 8% of the planted acres was no-tilled in Lancaster County in 2000, while 91% of the planted acres was not under conservation tillage (i.e. it had less than 30% crop residue at the surface at planting). Conservation tillage has important benefits for the environment, but if yields are not competitive its adoption will be inhibited."

  2. 86% Agronomy Facts 61: Wirestem Muhly Management in Agronomic Crops [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Wirestem muhly is a perennial grass species that can be problematic in conservation tillage production systems throughout Pennsylvania and the Northeast. It is a particular problem in no-till corn and soybean production, but it can also be troublesome in orchards, in nursery and vegetable crops, on roadsides and streambanks, and in other areas with rich, moist soils. It is native to America and can be found in many areas of the midwestern United States from South Dakota to Missouri and eastward to Virginia and Maine."

  3. 73% Cereal Rust Mite

    "Significant losses in timothy from feeding by the cereal rust mite have been reported in Lancaster, Lebanon, Dauphin, and York counties over the last two years. It is likely that the mite also has been causing losses in other counties across the state. Yield loss estimates range from 30-70%."

  4. 73% Agronomy Series #132: Listing of Characterized Soils in Pennsylvania [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The Pennsylvania State University has been characterizing Pennsylvania soils since 1957. Prior to 1957, soils from three counties (Lancaster in 1955, Chester in 1956, and Erie in 1956) were sampled and characterized by the USDA Soil Conservation Service (SCS). The characterization process entails the excavation of a soil pit, a description of the pedon's (profile) morphology (color, structure, etc.), as well as a description of site characteristics (slope, vegetation, etc.). In addition the soil is sampled horizon by horizon and various laboratory analyses are performed on the collected samples."
