  1. 100% 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."

  2. 98% Agronomy Facts 31C: Soil Fertility Management for Forage Crops Maintenance [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soil fertility management for forage crops is a continuous process that begins well before the forage crop is established. In the pre-establishment phase, the soil conditions are adjusted to provide optimum soil fertility when the crop is established. At establishment phase, the fertility program should deal with any last minute small adjustments in soil fertility and any requirements such as a starter fertilizer for getting the plants established. If the pre-establishment soil fertility goals are met and the stand is successfully established, the goal becomes maintenance of an adequate level of fertility to meet the needs of the crop throughout the life of the stand."

    "Soil fertility management for forage crops is a continuous process that begins well before the forage crop is established. In the pre-establishment phase the soil conditions are adjusted to provide optimum soil fertility when the crop is established. At establishment the fertility program should deal with any last-minute small adjustments in soil fertility and any requirements for getting the plants established, such as a starter fertilizer. Finally, once the crop is established the fertility program focuses on maintaining good soil fertility levels for the life of the forage stand."

    "Soil fertility management for forage crops is a continuous process that begins well before the forage crop is estab-lished. In the pre-establishment phase, the soil conditions are adjusted to provide optimum soil fertility when the crop is established. The fertility program during the establish-ment phase should deal with last minute, small adjust-ments in soil fertility and any requirements such as a starter fertilizer for getting the plants established. After the crop is established, the fertility program should focus on mainte-nance of good fertility levels in the soil for the life of the forage stand."

  5. 96% Turfgrass Seed and Seed Mixtures
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "One of the most important steps in turfgrass establishment is the selection of high quality seed or a seed mixture that is adapted to the site conditions and intended use of the turf. Poor quality seed may be low in viability and contain weed seeds as well as undesirable grass species. Consequently, the use of poor quality seed may result in unsatisfactory turf establishment, thus, wasted time, effort, and money. Also, If the species in the seed mixture are not adapted to the conditions at the site, the resulting stand may become thin and subject to soil erosion and weed encroachment."

  6. 47% Moss in the Lawn
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Moss is one of the most persistent and annoying weeds that occurs in home lawns. Basically, it is an opportunistic plant that will grow where turfgrasses are thin and weak. Moss does not persist in stands of dense, vigorously-growing turf."

  7. 47% Pennsylvania's Racehorse Industry Inventory, Basic Economic and Demographic Characteristics [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Horse racing has had a long-standing presence in Pennsylvania, and is a significant and integralpart of Pennsylvania?s equine industry. In 2001, Pennsylvania?s four race tracks held a total of762 race days for both harness and Thoroughbred horses. Over 2.4 million patrons attended thetrack (1.8 million attendance for Thoroughbred and 597,155 for harness racing) and wagered$941.6 million for Thoroughbred racing and $259.5 million for harness racing. In total for 2001,the projected horse racing total handle (all wagering at all race tracks) for the state was $1.2billion. An additional $432 million was wagered during the year on live ($49.8 million) andsimulcast races ($383 million). Approximately 80% of the money wagered on harness and 76%from Thoroughbred racing is returned to the betting public with the remainder distributed amongthe state (in the form of taxes), purses for the horsemen, and operating costs."

  8. 46% 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."
