G97-1319 Management Of Smooth Sumac On Grasslands, John Ortmann, Katherine L. Miles, James L. Stubbendieck, Walter H. Schacht

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The herbicide 2,4-D LV4 ester provides excellent low-cost smooth sumac control. Prescribed burning before herbicide application does not substantially improve sumac control, but may ease herbicide application and provide other benefits.

Smooth sumac (Rhus glabra L.) is a native deciduous shrub that forms dense thickets from widely spreading roots. It is found in the Sandhills, mixed-grass, and tallgrass areas throughout Nebraska. Introduced cool-season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.), invade the thickets, and production of desirable forage species is reduced below the dense canopies. Trees and other shrubs readily establish in aging sumac thickets, accelerating the conversion ...

The Poison Center, at the Children's Hospital in Omaha, reports that agricultural pesticides are responsible for 4.6 percent of all accidental exposures reported. A recent study surveyed callers to The Poison Center who were exposed ...


G97-1334 Estimating Manure Nutrients From Livestock And Poultry, Richard K. Koelsch, Charles A. Shapiro Jan 1997

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses a procedure for estimating the quantity of nutrients in livestock manure. When managed properly, nutrients in livestock manure can be a valuable resource. When managed improperly, however, these same nutrients become a potential environmental pollutant. Accurate crediting of manure nutrients within a total crop nutrient program is fundamental to utilizing manure as a resource. This NebGuide will help producers estimate the total manure nutrients (N, P and K) produced by their livestock and show how to adjust for losses for various storage and handling situations.
