  1. 26% 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."

  2. 25% 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."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The barnyard is often the first place to look for sources of sediment, bacteria, nitrogen, and phosphorus that can contaminate surface water and, in some cases, groundwater. Barnyards are busy places that can be difficult to manage. Mud and manure in a barnyard are not only a source of pollutants, but also sources of microbes that can cause animal health problems."

  5. 25% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 5: Milkhouse Waste Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Milking center wastewater usually is considered a dairy sanitation problem. If not carefully managed, however, dairy wastewater can contaminate surface water or groundwater. Milkhouse wastewater may contain paper towels, detergent, milk solids, fats, manure, and other organic materials that reduce oxygen levels in water as they decompose. Fish and other aquatic life need this oxygen to live. If milk is frequently poured down the milkhouse drain, milk fats can cause premature aging of a wastewater septic system due to clogging of the drain field."

    "Runoff from livestock production facilities can carry manure, soil, microorganisms, and other potential pollutants that could contaminate surface water and groundwater sources. If not managed properly, animal wastes can affect water quality and human health."

  7. 25% Conservation Tillage Series: Cover Crops for Conservation Tillage Systems [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Producers seed cover crops to provide a soil cover or barrier against soil erosion. In addition, cover crops can improve the soil by adding organic matter, nutrients, and stability and by acting as scavengers to trap leftover nutrients that otherwise might leach out. Cover crops are used as ground cover, mulches, green manure, nurse crops, smother crops, and forage and food for animals or humans. Cover crops can be annual or perennial species, including certain legumes, grasses, and non-leguminous dicots."
