  1. 27% Agronomy Facts 18: Corn silage production and management
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Corn harvested for silage is an important feed crop on most Pennsylvania farms, where cropland often is limited. The crop provides livestock producers with a high-yielding, relatively consistent source of forage and the animals with a highly digestible and palatable feed. Corn silage produces more energy per acre than any other crop grown in Pennsylvania."

  2. 27% Agronomy Facts 30: Forage Quality in Perspective [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Fluctuations in milk prices, feed costs, and government programs are forcing dairy farmers to become more efficient with their farm operation. Since feed accounts for approximately one-half of the total cost of producing milk, and high quality forage optimizes the productivity of the animals, increasing the quality of forage available is one of the best methods of improving overall feeding efficiency. To effectively produce high quality forage, it is necessary to understand what forage quality is and to keep the factors influencing forage quality in perspective."

  3. 27% Agronomy Facts 38A: A nutrient management approach for Pennsylvania: Introduction to the concepts
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nutrient management has taken on new meaning in recent times. Soil fertility traditionally dealt with supplying and managing nutrients to meet crop production requirements. The predictable response of a crop to the application of a deficient nutrient has been the focus. Ways of farming to optimize agronomic production and economic returns to crop production were developed to take advantage of these expected crop responses. Changes in the supply of plant nutrients for this purpose have been dramatic since the end of World War II."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The focus of nutrient management is rapidly evolving from optimizing agronomic production and economic returns of crop production to balancing farm production with environmental protection. Discovery of limiting factors, creativity in developing and delivering the needed materials or information, and confidence in the projected outcomes of improved soil fertility formed the basis for crop production and economic successes of the past. Scientists, farmers, educators, and industries must respond to the new expectations for environmental protection in many of the same ways."

  5. 27% Agronomy Facts 49: Successful Forage Crop Establishment
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Because of high costs, seeding forage crops is considered to be a "high stakes" farming operation. The days of spreading some seeds on the ground and hoping for nature to cooperate are past. Today, success is imperative. Forage producers must minimize risk as much as possible to ensure successful forage crop establishment. Here are some practices that can improve the success of forage crop seedings."

  6. 27% Agronomy Facts 60: Nutrient Management Planning - Overview [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nutrient management traditionally has been concerned with optimizing the economic returns from nutrients used to produce a crop. More recently, nutrient management also has begun to address ways to minimize the negative impact of nutrients on the environment. Programs such as the Chesapeake Bay Program and the Nutrient Management Act in Pennsylvania have focused attention on improving nutrient management on Commonwealth farms."

  7. 27% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Introduction [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The introduction includes a preliminary screening quiz that can help prioritize which Pennsylvania Farm?A?Syst worksheets to complete. It also includes a farmstead map worksheet, which is hand drawn by the evaluator to locate important features that may impact water quality. The worksheets can be used individually or together for a more complete evaluation."

  8. 27% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Preliminary Screening Quiz [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Everything we do affects groundwater or surface water quality. Evaluation worksheets are available for farmstead management practices and site conditions. This preliminary screening quiz can help prioritize more detailed farmstead evaluations, which are available through the Pennsylvania Farm?A?Syst program."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Liquid petroleum products are concentrated, effective sources of power, lubrication, and heat. Aboveground and underground storage of petroleum products such as transportation fuel and heating fuel, however, can be a threat to family and farm safety, public health, and the environment."

  10. 27% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 11: Soil Conservation Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soil conservation protects a valuable resource and reduces the off-farm direct impacts of sediment or the indirect impacts of nutrients or pesticides that may be attached to eroded soil particles. A good soil management program has three goals: to protect the soil from erosion by water or wind; to reduce runoff from the land into surface water; and to maintain or improve soil quality."
