    "The chlorophyll meter is a portable, hand-held device that instantaneously measures the greenness (or that instantaneously measures the greenness (or that instantaneously measures the greenness (or that instantaneously measures the greenness (or chlorophyll content) of a plant in the field."

  2. 32% Agronomy Facts 48: Forage Sorghum [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Forage sorghum is a large, warm-season, annual grass that is adapted to Pennsylvania and can be grown as a silage crop. Forage sorghum can be a profitable alternative crop, provided that it is managed well and used in the right situations. For instance, forage sorghum is cheaper to produce, has comparable yields, but has slightly lower forage quality when compared to corn for silage. The objective of this fact sheet is to describe some attributes of forage sorghum, provide some management recommendations, and describe the potential role of forage sorghum in the forage/livestock systems used on many Pennsylvania farms."

  3. 32% Soil Management Research Reports: Tillage Evaluation Study Rock Springs, Centre County
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Six tillage treatments were started in 1978 at the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center in Rock Springs in Centre County, Pennsylvania. The plots have been planted in corn every year since the beginning of the study with the exception of 1986 when Ogle oats were planted, and 1993 when soybeans were planted in some of the plots. The six tillage treatments have remained as originally established, except for the "disked once" treatment which was discontinued to introduce the zone-till treatment in 2001. With collaboration from the staff at the Larson Agronomy Research Farm at Rock Springs, this study was continued in 2003 in the Fry K field."

  4. 32% 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."
