  1. 25% Agronomy Facts 5: Quackgrass Management: An Integrated Approach [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Quackgrass is a widespread, persistent, cool-season, grassy weed found in Pennsylvania row and forage crops. This competitive perennial grass can reduce crop yields up to 95 percent. It can be managed with a consistent integrated program combining preventive, cultural, mechanical, and chemical methods."

  2. 25% Agronomy Facts 20: Birdsfoot Trefoil [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Producing high-quality forage for cattle and sheep has traditionally been difficult on marginal lands in Pennsylvania and New York. Soils with few limitations are generally sown to alfalfa. Soils with a low pH, poor drainage, poor native fertility, or fragipans prone to heaving are not suitable for alfalfa production. Birdsfoot trefoil ( L.) is a forage legume that is more tolerant of these adverse production conditions."

  3. 25% Agronomy Facts 23: Summer-Annual Grasses for Supplemental or Emergency Forage [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Shortages of forage crops in Pennsylvania most often occur during the summer, when dry conditions have reduced the productivity of pastures, hay crops, or silage corn fields. Summer-annual grasses, which maintain relatively high levels of production during hot and dry conditions, can greatly reduce the risk of inadequate forage production during the summer. They also can be used as an emergency forage source when production of corn and hay crops is likely to be less than adequate."

  4. 25% 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."

  5. 25% Agronomy Facts 25: Orchardgrass
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Orchardgrass ( L.) is a perennial, cool-season, tall-growing, grass which does not have rhizomes or stolons (bunch-type grass). It starts growth early in spring, develops rapidly, and flowers during May under Pennsylvania conditions. Orchardgrass is more tolerant of shade, drought, and heat than is timothy, perennial ryegrass or Kentucky bluegrass but also grows well in full sunlight."

  6. 25% Agronomy Facts 26: Reed Canarygrass [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Reed canarygrass ( L.) is a tall, leafy, high-yielding perennial. It is a cool-season grass which is greater in winterhardiness and more resistant to foliar diseases than other cool-season grasses grown in Pennsylvania. The plants spread and thicken from short rhizomes, creating a dense sod. If not grazed or clipped, plants will reach heights exceeding 6 feet under high fertility conditions."

  7. 25% Agronomy Facts 32: Pasture and Hay for Horses
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Horses are used in a wide variety of activities throughout Pennsylvania and adjoining states. Most of these horses are owned and managed for recreation or sport rather than for profit. One of the main expenses in owning a horse is feed. To minimize feed costs, it is important to keep horses healthy and feed them a balanced ration that meets their nutritional needs."

  8. 25% 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."

  9. 25% 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."

  10. 25% Environmental Soil Issues: Land Application of Sewage Sludge in Pennsylvania - A Plain English Tour of the Regulations [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "At first reading, regulatory language often is difficult to understand because it is written to be technically accurate and legally precise. This fact sheet seeks to provide a "plain English" description of the current regulations for land application of sewage sludge in Pennsylvania. It introduces the approach and concepts used in developing the regulations and explains the regulations' key points."
