G89-919 Quality Laboratory Samples Necessary For Accurate Disease Diagnosis, Duane Rice, Douglas G. Rogers Jan 1989

G89-919 Quality Laboratory Samples Necessary For Accurate Disease Diagnosis, Duane Rice, Douglas G. Rogers

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the importance of submitting proper specimens to the veterinary diagnostic laboratory as an aid in diagnosing infectious diseases, feed imbalance, or animal poisoning.

To comprehend the reasons for failures in disease diagnosis at veterinary diagnostic laboratories, it is important to understand what disease is, what causes disease, how the animal resists disease (becomes immune), and what happens to the animal if disease develops and the animal does not become immune.

According to Stedmans Dictionary, disease is an interruption, cessation or disorder of body functions, systems or organs. Some diseases may be obvious to the untrained eye, but ...


G89-906 Barley Yellow Dwarf Disease Of Barley, Oats, And Wheat, John E. Watkins, Leslie C. Lane Jan 1989

G89-906 Barley Yellow Dwarf Disease Of Barley, Oats, And Wheat, John E. Watkins, Leslie C. Lane

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The symptoms of barley yellow dwarf are covered here, as are disease occurrence and spread, and control.

Barley yellow dwarf (BYD) is distributed worldwide. It is the most economically important disease of barley and oats in North America. Barley yellow dwarf, wheat streak mosaic (WSM) and soil-borne wheat mosaic (SBWM), are three virus diseases that caused serious cereal grain yield losses in Nebraska during the last decade.

Since the mid-1980s barley yellow dwarf has become increasingly widespread in Nebraska, and now is a serious concern to oat and wheat producers. Outbreaks occasionally reach epidemic proportions as occurred in wheat in ...


G89-907 Drinking Water: Testing For Quality (Revised April 2005), Sharon Skipton, Bruce I. Dvorak, Wayne Woldt Jan 1989

G89-907 Drinking Water: Testing For Quality (Revised April 2005), Sharon Skipton, Bruce I. Dvorak, Wayne Woldt

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Why test water quality? Concern about water quality often leads consumers to ask questions such as "What is in my water?" or "Is my drinking water safe?" All water from natural sources contains dissolved substances. These substances are often called contaminants, especially when the amounts present are at possibly harmful or problematic levels. The substances in water can result from either natural processes or human activities. At low concentrations, many do not cause known harmful effects and may be beneficial. Research shows some substances may be harmful only when present at high enough concentrations. The only way to know if ...


G89-953 Soybean Chlorosis Management, Edwin J. Penas, Richard A. Wiese Jan 1989

G89-953 Soybean Chlorosis Management, Edwin J. Penas, Richard A. Wiese

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Four management ideas that make it possible to grow soybeans on alkaline soils are covered here.

Chlorosis (yellowing) in soybeans can be a problem wherever soybeans are grown on alkaline soils in Nebraska. Serious chlorosis is likely to occur when the pH of these alkaline soils is 7.5 or higher. Soybean chlorosis problems occur in the Platte and Elkhorn River Valleys and, to a lesser extent, in the Republican and Loup River Valleys, and on high lime soils in central and western Nebraska. Not all high pH soils cause chlorosis of soybeans even though they are alkaline.

Soil tests ...

G89-947 Buying Meat By The Serving, Dennis E. Burson Jan 1989

G89-947 Buying Meat By The Serving, Dennis E. Burson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Buying meat by the serving rather than by the pound can save you money. Determining cost per serving is covered here.

Smart shoppers use cost per serving rather than price per pound in making meat selection decisions. Price per pound can be misleading because all cuts will not yield the same number of servings per pound.

Although some boneless cuts may cost more on a per pound basis, they may be more economical due to less waste. The amount of bone and waste fat determines the number of servings of cooked meat a cut will yield. Cost of the edible ...


G89-944 Home Freezing Of Cooked And Prepared Foods, Katharine P. Riddle, Anne Mae Brenner Jan 1989

G89-944 Home Freezing Of Cooked And Prepared Foods, Katharine P. Riddle, Anne Mae Brenner

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Preparing food ahead of time and freezing it can save time, energy and money. Frozen cooked foods also add variety to your menu, offer quick meals for unexpected company and provide nutritious choices for busy days.

When you are preparing a main dish, it takes only a little more effort and time to make enough for several meals. You can freeze all of the prepared food in meal size packages, or serve part of the food immediately and freeze the rest.

It is more economical to make your own supply of prepared dishes than to purchase commercially prepared foods.


G89-923 Windbreak Maintenance And Renovation, Jon Wilson, Mike Kuhns Jan 1989

G89-923 Windbreak Maintenance And Renovation, Jon Wilson, Mike Kuhns

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

What are you doing to maintain your windbreak? Is renovation necessary? This NebGuide can help you decide.

Windbreaks are integral parts of many Nebraska farming and ranching operations. They protect man, animals, crops and buildings from cold winter winds, hot summer winds, and deep snows. Windbreaks prevent wind erosion and provide wildlife habitat.

All windbreaks, even well-designed ones, need regular maintenance. Some windbreaks, especially those that are older or neglected, may need more drastic treatment or renovation.


G89-949 Safety During Snow Removal, Robert Grisso, Rollin Schnieder Jan 1989

G89-949 Safety During Snow Removal, Robert Grisso, Rollin Schnieder

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Safe tips for snow removal using snow shovels, snowblowers and powered blades or sweepers are covered in this NebGuide.

As the temperature drops and the grounds maintenance equipment is stored for the winter, position the snow removal equipment for quick access, and start thinking about snow removal safety.

About half the accidents involving snow removal equipment happen to first-time users or those using the equipment for the first time each winter.

Snow removal equipment falls in one of three groups: 1) the snow shovel, 2) the snow thrower or blower, and 3) the powered blade or sweeper.

G89-941 Financial Planning Form: Income Statement, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide provides step-by-step directions for completing the included income statement.

What Is an Income Statement?

An income statement shows income and expenses over a period of time, usually a year. Like a motion picture, it also can show the movement of income expenses between net worth statements.

This income statement includes five categories of income (salaries, wages, bonuses; investment income; gifts; borrowed money; and other income), and three categories of expenses (taxes; fixed obligations and financing expense; and living expenses). A space to calculate net income (the amount left after all expenses) concludes this form.


G89-940 Financial Planning Form: Net Worth Statement, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue Jan 1989

G89-940 Financial Planning Form: Net Worth Statement, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide gives step-by-step instructions for filling out the included net worth statement, sometimes called a balance sheet.

A net worth statement, or balance sheet, is like a snapshot that shows a financial situation at a certain point in time. In simple terms, the net worth sheet shows how much money would be left if everything owned was converted into cash and used to pay off all debts.

The net worth statement includes what is owned (assets) on the left side of the sheet, what is owed to creditors (liabilities) on the right side of the sheet, and the net ...


G89-934 Financial Counseling: What, Who, When, And Where, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue Jan 1989

G89-934 Financial Counseling: What, Who, When, And Where, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide explains what financial counseling is, who needs it and why, when it is needed, where to find a qualified financial counselor, and more.

What Is Financial Counseling?

Financial counselors help people learn to manage their own financial resources. As a process, financial counseling involves at least two people--the person who counsels, and the person or persons being counseled.

Financial counseling usually extends over a period of time, since most true change does not take place immediately. Ultimately all decisions are left to the person being counseled.

Financial planning involves setting financial goals and objectives, developing an action plan ...


G89-902 Intensive Gardening Techniques, Betty Besal Jan 1989

G89-902 Intensive Gardening Techniques, Betty Besal

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes techniques which will allow the gardener to grow more vegetables where space may be limited.

For some people, a small-sized garden is preferable to a larger one. Smaller gardens require less labor and expense than larger gardens. Decreasing garden size provides more yard space for other activities. The gardener can concentrate soil improvement efforts in a smaller area, and, with careful management, small gardens can produce sufficient vegetables for fresh eating during the growing season, and perhaps extra produce for preserving.

G89-954 A Guide For Managing Poultry Insects (Revised April 1996), John B. Campbell Jan 1989

G89-954 A Guide For Managing Poultry Insects (Revised April 1996), John B. Campbell

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Major insect pests of Nebraska's poultry population are identified and treatment recommendations are given.

For many years poultry production in Nebraska has consisted primarily of large operations of layer hens. In recent years, however, broiler production has increased in southeast Nebraska. There are also some large turkey production units. Extreme competitiveness in the poultry industry has resulted in narrow cost-profit margins. Poultry operations cannot allow ectoparasitic and nuisance insects to interfere with production, nor can they afford high pest control expenses. For production to be profitable, poultry production must be managed to reduce the incidence of insect pests.

Poultry ...

G89-932 Minimum Center Pivot Design Capacities In Nebraska, William L. Kranz, Derrel L. Martin, Greg Lackas

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Factors to consider in choosing an appropriate center pivot design are covered here. Irrigators investing in a center pivot irrigation system need to consider this important question: How much supplemental water is required by the crop? Irrigation system capacity needed to meet crop requirements is defined in units of gallons per minute (GPM) or gallons per minute per acre (GPM/AC). If the system capacity is too low, crop stress occurs during some portion of the growing season. If the capacity is too high, surface runoff may result, or capital investment for the pumping plant and center pivot may be ...

Ec89-1871 Wheat Streak Mosaic Disease, John E. Watkins, Roy C. French, John B. Campbell, Eric D. Kerr, Robert N. Klein Jan 1989

Ec89-1871 Wheat Streak Mosaic Disease, John E. Watkins, Roy C. French, John B. Campbell, Eric D. Kerr, Robert N. Klein

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Wheat streak mosaic was first recognized in Nebraska in the early 1920's as "yellow mosaic." This virus disease has the potential to cause serious crop losses in winter and spring wheats and in spring oats. It is most prevalent in the central and northern Great Plains. In Nebraska wheat streak mosaic commonly occurs in the west central and Panhandle, but also occurs in south central and eastern Nebraska. During some years the spring oat crop in northeast Nebraska is devastated by the combination of wheat streak mosaic and barley yellow dwarf diseases occurring in the same field.


G89-900 Phytophthora Root Rot Of Alfalfa, John E. Watkins, Fred A. Gray, Bruce Anderson Jan 1989

G89-900 Phytophthora Root Rot Of Alfalfa, John E. Watkins, Fred A. Gray, Bruce Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Disease cycle, symptoms and management practices for phytophthora root rot are discussed in this NebGuide.

Phytophthora root rot (PRR) is a major cause of seedling death in newly established alfalfa, and causes a progressive decline of established stands in Nebraska. This disease is caused by the fungus Phytophthora megasperma f. sp. medicaginis and occurs in most of the alfalfa producing areas in North America.

The Phytophthora that infects alfalfa is different from the Phytophthora that causes root rot in soybeans. Growers sometimes think the two diseases are the same for the respective crops, but they are two different diseases with ...
