Dissemination of information is one of the primary functions of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA). A key component to dissemination is consistent, concise presentation of information.

It should be used as a primary source for writing, style, editing, and procedures for ASA-CSSA-SSSA publications. You can download a full copy here or individual chapters below.
