  1. 58% Agronomy Facts 18: Corn silage production and management
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Corn harvested for silage is an important feed crop on most Pennsylvania farms, where cropland often is limited. The crop provides livestock producers with a high-yielding, relatively consistent source of forage and the animals with a highly digestible and palatable feed. Corn silage produces more energy per acre than any other crop grown in Pennsylvania."

  2. 58% Agronomy Facts 20: Birdsfoot Trefoil [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Producing high-quality forage for cattle and sheep has traditionally been difficult on marginal lands in Pennsylvania and New York. Soils with few limitations are generally sown to alfalfa. Soils with a low pH, poor drainage, poor native fertility, or fragipans prone to heaving are not suitable for alfalfa production. Birdsfoot trefoil ( L.) is a forage legume that is more tolerant of these adverse production conditions."

  3. 58% Agronomy Facts 28: Tall Fescue [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Tall fescue ( Schreb.) is a deep-rooted, long-lived, sod-forming grass that spreads by short underground stems called rhizomes. In Pennsylvania it has been used primarily for conservation purposes but is well suited as hay, silage, or pasture. It is well adapted to the soil and weather conditions of Pennsylvania. It is especially well adapted to acid, wet soils of shale origin and produces more forage than other cool-season grasses on soils with a pH of less than 5.5."

  4. 58% Agronomy Facts 29: Warm-season grasses
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Native, perennial warm-season grasses such as switchgrass ( L.) and big bluestem (Andropogon gerardi Vitman) grow primarily during the warm part of the summer. They produce well compared to cool-season grasses during the hot and dry weather of July and August, and on soils with low moisture holding capacity, low pH, and low phosphorus levels."

  5. 58% Agronomy Facts 39: Prarie Grass [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Prairie grass ( Kunth.) is a tallgrowing perennial grass that is suited to well-drained soils with medium to high fertility levels and a pH of 6.0 or greater. Prairie grass is a type of bromegrass, but unlike smooth bromegrass it does not have rhizomes and produces seed heads each growth period, especially during the summer. Herbage and immature seed heads of prairie grass are highly palatable."

  6. 58% Agronomy Facts 52: Potential of Narrow Row Corn Production in Pennsylvania [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Traditionally, corn produced in Pennsylvania and surrounding states is grown in rows that are 30 inches or wider. Now, producers and researchers are considering the potential of narrower rows such as 15 to 22 inches for corn production in Pennsylvania. The interest in narrow rows is sparked by several possible advantages of this production system: higher yields, better weed control, decreased potential for soil erosion, and increased nutrient uptake."

  7. 58% Agronomy Facts 60: Nutrient Management Planning - Overview [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nutrient management traditionally has been concerned with optimizing the economic returns from nutrients used to produce a crop. More recently, nutrient management also has begun to address ways to minimize the negative impact of nutrients on the environment. Programs such as the Chesapeake Bay Program and the Nutrient Management Act in Pennsylvania have focused attention on improving nutrient management on Commonwealth farms."

  8. 58% Environmental Soil Issues: Land Application of Sewage Sludge in Pennsylvania - Biosolids Quality [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Treatment of municipal wastewater produces sewage sludge, a dilute suspension of solids in water. Sewage sludge contains significant amounts of essential plant nutrients and organic matter that can benefit crop production. Application of sewage sludge to farmland has been a common practice in Pennsylvania for many years and allows this material to be recycled, rather than incinerated or disposed of in landfills. In addition to its beneficial aspects, however, sewage sludge also contains trace elements, organic chemicals, and pathogens that could harm humans or the environment if they are not properly treated and managed."

  9. 58% Turfgrass Fertilization: A Basic Guide for Professional Turfgrass Managers [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Dollar for dollar, fertilization does more to improve poor-quality turfgrass or to maintain good-quality turfgrass than any other management practice. Proper fertilization practices produce a dense, medium-to dark-green turf that resists pests and environmental stresses."

  10. 58% Turfgrass Species for Pennsylvania
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Turfgrasses are fine-textured grass species that form a uniform, persistent population of plants and that tolerate traffic and low mowing heights (usually two inches or below). Only a few grass species produce acceptable turf in Pennsylvania. These grasses can be divided into two groups, the cool-season turfgrasses and the warm-season turfgrasses."
