  1. 100% Agronomy Facts 46: Multiflora Rose Management in Grass Pastures (An Integrated Approach) [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The weed multiflora rose (, Thunb.) is an increasing problem in Pennsylvania pastures and noncropland. It thrives on idle land, fencerows, and low-maintained, hilly pastures. Originally introduced from Asia and promoted as a "living fence" to control erosion and provide food and cover for wildlife, multiflora rose quickly spread and is considered a noxious weed in Pennsylvania and surrounding states."

    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "The equine industry in Pennsylvania has doubled in sizesince 1967 and continues to expand and diversify. As aresult, the demand for horse boarding services has increased. Many Pennsylvanians enjoy a variety of recreational activities involving horses, such as trail riding, participating in horse and pony clubs, and competing in shows and other events. Horses contribute to the state?s economy by creating a market for feed, supplies, and the services of boarders, veterinarians, trainers, breeders, and farriers."

    "This page provides links to powerpoint files and spreadsheets containing information about the dairy industry. These files tend to be large and it is highly recommended that a person inquires about the cd that contains these files. The topics that are on this webpage contain information from the presentations that were given at the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences Dairy and Livestock Inservice in 2001."

  5. 67% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 6: Stream and Drainageway Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Water is one of our most important resources. In the past, it was advantageous to have a water source close to the farmstead. Today, numerous farms have a stream or drainageway cutting through heavily used pastures, exercise lots, or barnyards. As more cows are concentrated on an area, the potential increases for sediment, bacteria, nitrogen, and phosphorus to run off into these streams. However, if managed properly, on-farm streams can be useful for livestock watering and valuable for fish and wildlife habitat."

  7. 56% Agronomy Series #142: Pennsylvania Soil Survey History [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "This publication celebrates the centennial (1899-1999) of the United States Cooperative Soil Survey Program and documents some historical aspects of the soil survey history of Pennsylvania. In 1986, Dr. Robert Cunningham et al. (1986), prepared a Penn State Agronomy Series (No. 90) publication which was a collection of papers by a number of authors on various aspects of the soil survey in Pennsylvania. That publication did not get wide distribution and is reproduced in this publication as Chapters 3-8. In addition, Chapter 2 has been added to document the initiation and development of the Penn State Soil Characterization Laboratory. The laboratory was the original focus of the Basic Soils Inventory Program within the Penn State Agronomy Department and has contributed greatly to the Cooperative Soil Survey Program in Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, the Cooperative Soil Survey Program includes the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), formally the USDA Soil Conservation Service (SCS), the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources (now the PADEP), the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and the Penn State University College of Agricultural Sciences."

  8. 56% Agronomy Series #145: Pennsylvania State University Soil Characterization Laboratory Database System Documentation [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soils have been sampled and analyzed in Pennsylvania for characterization since 1954. The initial sampling was done by the USDA Soil Conservation Service (SCS) now known as the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Subsequent samplings have been done by the Penn State Soil Characterization Laboratory, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the NRCS. Presently, 949 pedons (profiles) have been collected and analyzed. An account of the history of the sampling is given in Ciolkosz (1998). Initially the data (site, horizon, and laboratory) was available in hard copy printed form. Since the development of the computer, particularly the PC with large data capacities, the Pennsylvania analysis system and data have been computerized (see Ciolkosz, 2000; Ciolkosz and Thurman, 1992, 1994; Thurman et al., 1994). In order for a computer system to have longevity as it is modified and updated by computer programmers, the data system must be documented. Thus, the objective of this publication is to document the Penn State University Soil Characterization Laboratory Database System."

    "The major factor limiting optimumreproductive performance on many farms is failureto detect estrus in a timely and accurate manner.Several prostaglandin (PG) products are availablefor use in synchronizing estrus in heifers andlactating dairy cattle. These products wereoriginally used to treat individual cows that hadnot exhibited heat by the time of desired firstservice. Several controlled or programmedbreeding programs have been developed forsynchronizing groups of lactating cattle.PG to all open cows within a breeding groupwithout palpation. The potential advantages ofcontrolled breeding are listed below.Potential advantages ofcontrolled breeding1. Improve the efficiency of heat detection.2. Achieve more timely first service. "

    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."
