This month's webinar will look at Marcellus development and effects on farming from various perspectives
The Fourth Marcellus Summit will be held November 16-18 in State College
There are many factors that must be considered when making a pest control plan. Some of those factors are the biology of the pest, how pest damage impacts the value of the crop, the time it takes to apply controls, the cost of the control, how marketing impacts the use of pest control measures, and probably most important, is the control effective.
I lost a lot of tomato plants to Sclerotinia/White mold/Timber Rot this past season, while I’ve seen some in past years, why was it so bad this season?
Garlic growers in Canada and several northeastern states have seen crop losses of 80-90% in sections of fields infested with the stem/bloat nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci). Pennsylvania growers obtaining garlic seed/bulbs from Canadian and other northeastern sources may unknowingly introduce this serious pest into their fields.
On Tuesday morning, June 28, 2011 at 5:00 am, Sandea (halosulfuron-methyl) herbicide was applied postemergence on fields of pepper and cantaloupe growing in research plots at the Horticulture Research Farm, Rock Springs, PA. Sandea is labeled for application on both peppers and cantaloupes for weed control.
Please join us for an evening to celebrate our 2011 accomplishments, dinner & fellowship. Registration forms & payment must be received in our office by October 27th.

The Triple Divide Watershed Coalition was formed this year in Potter County, Pennsylvania, and is comprised of the nine public water supplies in that county, with assistance from the County Commissioners, Penn State Extension, Potter County Education Council, and the PA DEP. Inspired by water quality concerns from natural gas well drilling, the group is identifying some new ways to do business that they hope will prove to be good for water quality.
An Oregon State study indicates that forest biomass harvest and use for bioenergy will release more carbon dioxide than forests currently release.
Bryan Swistock, Penn State Extension Water Resources will discuss the research just completed on water well quality near Marcellus gas drilling sites.
Flood-affected forages might contain heavy metals, petroleum compounds, and sewage that might adversely animal health or contaminate animal-based food products.
Frequent testing will allow for a more consistent feed ration
To improve feed efficiency, you must understand the many factors that influence it.
Feed inventory tracking enhances feed management decisions.
