    "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."

  9. 28% Environmental Soil Issues: Land Application of Sewage Sludge in Pennsylvania - Use of Biosolids in Crop Production [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Approximately 300,000 tons (on a dry-weight basis) of municipal sewage sludge are produced each year in Pennsylvania. Three viable options now exist for disposal or use of this sludge: landfill placement; incineration; and recycling through application to farm, forest, or mine land. Although each of these options has its place, recycling efforts have increased in recent years because of growing recognition that our society cannot afford to throw away the valuable resources in sewage sludge. Before sewage sludges can be applied to farmland, however, they must be treated further to stabilize organic material and significantly reduce pathogens. Sewage sludges that have undergone such treatment and that are of sufficiently high quality to be used as an agricultural soil amendment ("land applied") under the current regulations are known as ."

    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."
