  1. 19% Environmental Soil Issues: Land Application of Sewage Sludge in Pennsylvania - Effects of Biosolids on Soil and Crop Quality [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The use of biosolids on Pennsylvania cropland has been a common practice since the mid-1970s. Biosolids contain essential plant nutrients and organic matter that can benefit crop production. Therefore land application of biosolids represents a beneficial reuse alternative to landfill disposal or incineration. Like any other soil amendment, biosolids application to agricultural land must be properly managed to obtain maximum benefits and minimize potential environmental risks. This fact sheet, which is part of a series on land application of biosolids, presents the results of a three-year research project that investigated how agronomic biosolids utilization has affected soil and crop quality."

  2. 16% Agronomy Facts 17: Pre-sidedress Soil Nitrate Test for Corn [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "A new approach to N soil testing whereby samples are taken during the growing season has been under study by researchers across the country, including a major effort in Pennsylvania. This test is called the Pre-sidedress Soil Nitrate Test (PSNT). The basis for this new N soil testing approach is taking soil samples just before sidedressing? after the spring wet period but before the period of major N demand by corn-and determining the nitrate-N available in the soil at that time. The results are then used to make sidedress N recommendations."

  3. 16% Soil Management Research Reports: Tillage Evaluation Study Rock Springs, Centre County
    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."
