  1. 19% Agronomy Facts 38D: A nutrient management approach for Pennsylvania: Exploring Performance Criteria [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    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."

  3. 19% Agronomy Facts 42: Grazing Alfalfa in Pennsylvania
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Grazing alfalfa is not a new practice. Alfalfa has been grazed alone or in mixtures with grasses and other legumes since its introduction into the United States. Compared with other management systems, however, grazing alfalfa has never been a widespread practice in this country. While alfalfa has been used extensively as a grazing crop in other countries, grazing of alfalfa in this country traditionally has been relegated to a clean-up operation in the fall."

  4. 19% Environmental Soil Issues: Land Application of Sewage Sludge in Pennsylvania - Biosolids Quality [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Treatment of municipal wastewater produces sewage sludge, a dilute suspension of solids in water. Sewage sludge contains significant amounts of essential plant nutrients and organic matter that can benefit crop production. Application of sewage sludge to farmland has been a common practice in Pennsylvania for many years and allows this material to be recycled, rather than incinerated or disposed of in landfills. In addition to its beneficial aspects, however, sewage sludge also contains trace elements, organic chemicals, and pathogens that could harm humans or the environment if they are not properly treated and managed."

  5. 19% 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 ."

  6. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Introduction [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader

    "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."

    "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."

  8. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 1: Water Well Condition and Construction [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "About 80% of Pennsylvania?s rural residents use groundwater to supply their drinking water and farmstead needs. Wells are designed to provide clean water. If they are not properly constructed or maintained, groundwater may become contaminated with bacteria, nitrates, and pesticides. These contaminants put family and livestock health at risk."

  9. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 2: Pesticide and Fertilizer Storage and Handling [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "When used properly, pesticides and fertilizers are effective crop management tools. However, these chemicals can endanger water quality and human health if they are not properly stored and handled. The chemicals can enter directly into the groundwater through wells or sinkholes at the farmstead or flow into surface water. When found in water supplies, pesticides normally are not present in high-enough concentrations to cause acute health effects. Instead, they typically occur at trace levels that may have effects after prolonged exposure."

  10. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 3: Household Wastewater Treatment System [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nearly one-third of Pennsylvania residents rely on private household waste treatment systems. Maintenance of these systems is the responsibility of the home owner. Up to 50% of the solids retained in a septic system decompose while the remainder accumulate in the tank. Septic tanks need to be pumped every 3 to 5 years to prevent the solids from escaping the tank and clogging drain-fields. The frequency of the pumping depends on the size of the septic tank and the number of people it serves."
