  1. 100% 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."

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

  3. 99% 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."

    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."

  5. 66% 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. 66% Agronomy Facts 33: Use of brassica crops to extend the grazing season [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Cool-season perennial grass and grass-legume pastures typically become less productive as the grazing season advances from June to November. Forage brassica crops such as turnip, swede, rape, and kale can be spring-seeded to supplement the perennial cool-season pastures in August and September or summer-seeded to extend the grazing season in November and December. Brassicas are annual crops which are highly productive and digestible and can be grazed 80 to 150 days after seeding, depending on the species."

    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "An effective method for increasing revenue from a lambproduction enterprise is to increase the number of lambsproduced per ewe each year. With high-level managementand production skills, it is possible to produce three lambcrops per ewe every two years. This technique is calledaccelerated lambing. It combines spring, off-season, andholiday lamb production into one enterprise. It also allowsfor increased efficiency in use of labor, land, equipment, and buildings."

  8. 42% 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."

  9. 42% Agronomy Facts 45: Forage Chicory
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Forage chicory ( L.) is a perennial plant that is suited to well-drained or moderately drained soils with medium-to high-fertility levels and a pH of 5.5 or greater. Chicory produces leafy growth which is higher in nutritive and mineral content (if managed properly) than is produced by alfalfa or cool-season grasses. It has a relatively deep taproot which provides for tolerance to drought conditions. Chicory provides both spring and summer forage with average growth rates from April through October of 50 pounds per acre per day. During peak growth periods chicory produces 73 pounds per acre per day."

  10. 42% Agronomy Facts 54: Pennsylvania's Nutrient Management Act: Who Will Be Affected? [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "In the spring of 1993, the Pennsylvania legislature passed and the governor signed the Nutrient Management Act into law. Before this legislation was passed, problems with nutrient pollution were administered under the Clean Streams Law, which dealt only with surface waters. This existing law stated that if a farmer follows practices in the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) publication (Manure Manual), no special permits or approvals are required for manure utilization on farms. The Nutrient Management Act is the first law in Pennsylvania that requires regulatory oversight of nutrient plans on certain farms. This law oversight of nutrient plans on certain farms. This law will take effect on October 1, 1997. An important question is, who will be affected by this legislation?"
