Many scholars believe that the Morrill Land-Grant Act of 1862 was one of the most important pieces of legislation in the history of our country. In 1863 Penn State became one of the nation's first and Pennsylvania's only land-grant institution. The Morrill Act gave Penn State a three-part mission of teaching, research and service. Today, universities continue to honor the legacy and the historical significance of the Morrill Act nearly 150 years later during a Penn State land-grant conference. Scholars from across the country gathered to dissect the history of land-grants and look to the future during a time of economic uncertainty.

Are you retired or inspired? You have more potential inside you than you realize. Are you hungry to reach your potential? Have you ever seen someone really hungry? If you put a pizza in front of a starving man, would he sell you that pizza for money? It depends on how hungry he is, right? At some point, the value of the pizza becomes so great he’s got to eat it, and no amount of money is worth it. There’s simply a different level of hunger in people for different things as we all go through life. Ice to an Eskimo may not be worth much while air to a drowning man is worth everything. Between those two extremes lie a lot of things that give you varying degrees of hunger. How much hunger do you have to grow and contribute, in some way, in this world? People who “have enough” are not hungry. ...

What in the World is Going on Here? - Land grant university fertilizer recommendations have served as the basis for nutrient applications made to agricultural fields across the US for decades. However, the wide range of fertilizer recommendations for the same crop, yield goal and soil test values from one state to another is almost frightening as fertilizer costs can more than double by crossing a state line. In addition, very few states provide fertilizer management recommendation options appropriate for both leased and owned land, and these recommendations or guidelines are usually rigid and insensitive to producer goals and resources. How credible is our advice to farmers in the real world? Soil and climate variables do not change abruptly at our state boundaries, so why do our fertiliz...
