New edition of agronomy guide should appeal to wider audience

Posted: February 22, 2011

The Penn State Agronomy Guide always has been nearly indispensable for many farmers. But the 2011-12 edition may be even more valuable than before. Updated and released bi-yearly by the College of Agricultural Sciences, the publication should now appeal to a wider audience, according to Marvin Hall, professor of forage management and co-author of the guide. "It's the traditional book, but it also contains crucial agricultural information for nontraditional agricultural producers," he said.
