  1. 100% Growing Turf Under Shaded Conditions
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The establishment and management of quality turfgrass under shaded conditions often is possible if the basic requirements for turfgrass growth are known and understood. Trees have extensive root systems (often quite shallow) that enable them to utilize huge amounts of water and nutrients, and they have dense leaves that severely restrict the light intensity under the trees. These three factors - competition for water, nutrients, and light - are the basic causes of turfgrass failure under shaded conditions. Poor drainage also contributes to poor turfgrass development in shaded areas. Poorly drained shaded areas often become infested with moss, which provides additional turfgrass competition."

  2. 81% Agronomy Facts 28: Tall Fescue [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Tall fescue ( Schreb.) is a deep-rooted, long-lived, sod-forming grass that spreads by short underground stems called rhizomes. In Pennsylvania it has been used primarily for conservation purposes but is well suited as hay, silage, or pasture. It is well adapted to the soil and weather conditions of Pennsylvania. It is especially well adapted to acid, wet soils of shale origin and produces more forage than other cool-season grasses on soils with a pH of less than 5.5."

  3. 78% Use of Ultrasound in Live Beef Cattle Carcass Contests [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Ultrasound technology has progressed significantly to the point where its use can markedly enhance the educational benefits of live steer shows and carcass contests. The educational benefits of using ultrasound technology will be described in this publication. Methods of ranking live beef cattle using ultrasound data will be described in another publication."

  4. 78% Use of Ultrasound in Live Lamb Carcass Contests [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "This fact sheet will outline: (1) the history of and need for lamb carcass contests, (2) the benefits of live animal carcass contests using ultrasound, and (3) the procedures necessary to use ultrasound technology to ensure uniform and consistent ranking of live lambs."

  5. 78% Use of Ultrasound in Live Swine Carcass Contests [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "This fact sheet will outline: (1) the history of and need for swine carcass contests, (2) the benefits of live animal carcass contests using ultrasound, and (3) the procedures necessary to use ultrasound technology to ensure uniform and consistent ranking of live hogs."

  6. 78% Use of Ultrasound to Predict Percent Intramuscular Fat in Live Hogs [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Ultrasound technology has progressed significantly to the point where its use can markedly enhance the educational benefits of live swine shows and carcass contests. Ultrasound technology can be used to determine if differences in percent intramuscular fat (%IMF), or marbling, could be differentiated among live hogs scanned ultrasonically."

  7. 66% Agronomy Facts 24: Timothy
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Timothy ( L.) is a perennial, bunch-type, shallow-rooted, cool-season grass that is well adapted to the Northeast and Upper Midwest. Its shallow root system, however, makes it unsuited to droughty soils. Timothy is popular in the northern half of Pennsylvania and most of New York State because of its natural adaptation to moist, cool environments."

  8. 52% Agronomy Facts 22: White Clover
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "White clover ( L.) is a short-lived perennial that can reseed itself under favorable conditions. It grows rapidly and spreads via stolons. White clover has a shallow root system, which makes it intolerant of droughty soils. It grows best during cool, moist weather on well-drained, fertile soils with a pH between 6 and 7. Pure stands of white clover are not usually planted because of their low growth habit and associated low yield. However, they make high-quality pastures in mixture with a grass and fix nitrogen for use by the grass."

  9. 50% Agronomy Facts 35: Some Facts About Soil Basics
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The earth is covered by a thin layer of soil, composed of minerals, organic matter, and living organisms. Within this layer is a record of the area's geological and climactic history, as well as information about the suitability of future use of the soil. Soils affect many areas of our lives; we depend on the soil to grow our food and support the buildings we live and work in. Soils form an essential element in the ecosystem. Human activities that damage soils threaten to disrupt the delicate balance that sustains life. It is important to have a basic understanding of the formation and properties of soils to determine their future uses and to manage soils wisely."

  10. 44% Agronomy Facts 27: Smooth Bromegrass [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Smooth bromegrass ( L.) is a leafy, sod-forming perennial grass that is best suited for hay or early spring pasture. It is deep-rooted and spreads by underground rhizomes. It matures somewhat later in the spring than orchardgrass and makes less summer growth than orchardgrass. Forage quality of smooth bromegrass compares well with other cool-season grasses, being affected primarily by stage of maturity."
