  1. 100% 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."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Prairie grass ( Kunth.) is a tallgrowing perennial grass that is suited to well-drained soils with medium to high fertility levels and a pH of 6.0 or greater. Prairie grass is a type of bromegrass, but unlike smooth bromegrass it does not have rhizomes and produces seed heads each growth period, especially during the summer. Herbage and immature seed heads of prairie grass are highly palatable."

  3. 76% Conservation Tillage Series: Soil Compaction and Conservation Tillage [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soil is a complex medium, but for simplicity we can think of it as a combination of solid mineral and organic particles and pore space. Pore space allows for air and water storage and movement in soils. Compaction squeezes the soil and, since solids do not compress, pore space is reduced. A footprint or wheel track rut in a field, for example, signals compaction."

    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Dollar for dollar, fertilization does more to improve poor-quality turfgrass or to maintain good-quality turfgrass than any other management practice. Proper fertilization practices produce a dense, medium-to dark-green turf that resists pests and environmental stresses."

  5. 49% Agronomy Facts 45: Forage Chicory
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Forage chicory ( L.) is a perennial plant that is suited to well-drained or moderately drained soils with medium-to high-fertility levels and a pH of 5.5 or greater. Chicory produces leafy growth which is higher in nutritive and mineral content (if managed properly) than is produced by alfalfa or cool-season grasses. It has a relatively deep taproot which provides for tolerance to drought conditions. Chicory provides both spring and summer forage with average growth rates from April through October of 50 pounds per acre per day. During peak growth periods chicory produces 73 pounds per acre per day."

  6. 49% Agronomy Facts 50: Kentucky Bluegrass [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Kentucky bluegrass ( L.) is a short-to-medium height, cool-season, long-lived, highly palatable, perennial grass that has smooth, soft, green to dark green leaves with boat-shaped tips. It spreads via rhizomes to form a dense sod and grows best during cool, moist weather on well-drained, fertile soils with a pH between 6 and 7. Although Kentucky bluegrass is found throughout the United States, it is most important agriculturally in the north central and northeastern regions and is best adapted to areas where the average daily temperature during July does not exceed 75 degrees F. Warm summer temperatures are the most limiting environmental factor to Kentucky bluegrass production."
