  1. 75% Agronomy Facts 23: Summer-Annual Grasses for Supplemental or Emergency Forage [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Shortages of forage crops in Pennsylvania most often occur during the summer, when dry conditions have reduced the productivity of pastures, hay crops, or silage corn fields. Summer-annual grasses, which maintain relatively high levels of production during hot and dry conditions, can greatly reduce the risk of inadequate forage production during the summer. They also can be used as an emergency forage source when production of corn and hay crops is likely to be less than adequate."

  2. 75% 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."

  3. 75% 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."

  4. 75% Considerations in Managing Cutting Height of Corn Silage
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Recently, interest has developed in cutting corn silage higher during harvest to improve the forage quality. Cutting corn silage higher can increase silage quality because the lower part of the crop is poorly digestible, but this can also reduce yield."

  5. 49% 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."

  6. 49% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 8: Silage Storage Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Silage is an essential feed for livestock-based agriculture. It can be made from corn, silage crops such as grass and alfalfa, or from crop processing wastes. When properly harvested and stored, silage poses little or no pollution threat. However, improper silage-making and storing can result in liquid effluents, gases, malodors, undesirable microorganisms, and waste or spoiled silage."

  7. 49% Drought-related issues in dairy cattle nutrition [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Includes topics related to the nutritive value of drought-stricken corn silage, the nutritive value of drought soybeans as a forage, alternative forage sources, and forage poisoning problems."

  8. 49% Nutritional Values of Forages and Concentrates for Dairy Cattle Printable Tables
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "This series of fourteen tables shows dry matter percentage, undegradable intake protein as a percent of crude protein, soluble protein as a crude protein percentage, and more for feeds such as grasses, soybeans, wheat, wheat bran, sorghum or milo, fish meal, corn distillers, feather meal, and almost seventy other possible feeds. The charts can be viewed on the screen or printed to help you calculate exactly what you need to feed your cows!"

  9. 44% Agronomy Facts 12: Nitrogen fertilization of corn [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nitrogen (N), an element that literally surrounds us, changes in form and chemistry almost continuously and moves from one location to another without our notice."

  10. 44% Agronomy Facts 17: Pre-sidedress Soil Nitrate Test for Corn [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "A new approach to N soil testing whereby samples are taken during the growing season has been under study by researchers across the country, including a major effort in Pennsylvania. This test is called the Pre-sidedress Soil Nitrate Test (PSNT). The basis for this new N soil testing approach is taking soil samples just before sidedressing? after the spring wet period but before the period of major N demand by corn-and determining the nitrate-N available in the soil at that time. The results are then used to make sidedress N recommendations."
