  1. 100% Begin Planning For Spring Labor Needs [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Dairy farm businesses that produce their own crops need to recognize that their labor and managment requirements increase dramatically during planting and harvest times. "

  2. 62% Agronomy Facts 63: Diagnosing Soil Compaction using a Penetrometer (soil compaction tester)
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soil compaction is a serious concern for farmers in Pennsylvania. Soil compaction can easily reduce crop yields by 10 percent, and can lead to water and soil quality degradation due to increased runoff and soil structure destruction. The continuous consolidation of farms means that herds are growing, more forage is harvested per farm, more manure is being produced, larger equipment is used to spread manure and harvest and transport forages and grain, and the opportunity to tailor field operations to optimum soil conditions for traffic is decreasing. Compaction is therefore an issue that will likely increase in importance in the years to come."

  3. 58% Agronomy Facts 7: Cutting management of alfalfa, red clover, and birdsfoot trefoil [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The goal of most forage programs is to maximize economic yield of nutrients while ensuring stand persistence. Frequent cutting produces high-quality forage while less frequent cutting generally results in increased stand longevity. Therefore, harvest management of perennial legumes such as alfalfa, red clover, and birdsfoot trefoil requires a compromise between quality and persistence."

  4. 58% Agronomy Facts 9: Large round bale silage
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Making round bale silage consists of wilting a forage to 50 to 60 percent moisture content, baling it in a round baler, and ensiling it within a plastic cover. This silage making technique can be used as a feed option by any farmer who produces forage, and it does not require a large silo or haylage harvesting equipment."

  5. 58% Agronomy Facts 14: Managing potassium for crop production [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "A corn crop takes up nearly as much potassium (K) as it does nitrogen (N), yet management of each nutrient is entirely different. Because only the K in the harvested portion of a crop is removed from a field, managing K for corn silage is different than for grain."

  6. 58% Agronomy Facts 18: Corn silage production and management
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Corn harvested for silage is an important feed crop on most Pennsylvania farms, where cropland often is limited. The crop provides livestock producers with a high-yielding, relatively consistent source of forage and the animals with a highly digestible and palatable feed. Corn silage produces more energy per acre than any other crop grown in Pennsylvania."

  7. 58% Agronomy Facts 58: Management of Eastern Black Nightshade in Agronomic Crops [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Eastern black nightshade Dun.), an annual broadleaf plant, is an increasing weed problem in northeastern field crop production. It is native to the Americas and is commonly found throughout the United States east of the Rocky Mountains. Nightshade begins germinating in May and can continue throughout the growing season. Although it can cause crop yield reductions, more importantly it can interfere with the harvest and lower crop quality."

  8. 58% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 8: Silage Storage Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Silage is an essential feed for livestock-based agriculture. It can be made from corn, silage crops such as grass and alfalfa, or from crop processing wastes. When properly harvested and stored, silage poses little or no pollution threat. However, improper silage-making and storing can result in liquid effluents, gases, malodors, undesirable microorganisms, and waste or spoiled silage."

  9. 58% The Agronomy Guide

In Part One - Crop and Soil Management, the chapters on specific crops include information about varieties, nutritional requirements, establishment, harvesting and special considerations. In Part Two - Pest Management, the chapters on Pest Control for specific crops include sections on weeds, insects and diseases."

  10. 58% From Harvest to Feed: Understanding Silage Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
