Style Guide

For this course, unless you are already familiar with another commonly used citation style format, your instructor strongly suggests that you use the citation style that is asked of authors who publish articles in one of the many journals from the so-called "TriSocieties" (American Society of Agronomy / Crop Science Society of America / Soil Science Society of America or ASA-CSSA-SSSA); that style is also referred to as "ASA".
