Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide explains how to identify possible forest management needs for a woodland in Nebraska and provides management options to maintain healthy trees and meet desired objectives.

Nebraska's forest lands comprise less than 2 percent of the total land base in the state (718,300 acres). However, on an acre by acre comparison, woodlands provide more associated benefits for society, the environment and our quality of life than most other land uses.

Trees provide soil protection from wind and water erosion. Woodlands help protect the quality of adjacent water resources by eliminating contaminates, shading for cooler water temperatures and ...

G97-1326 Crabapples For Nebraska Landscapes, Don Steinegger, John E. Watkins Jan 1997

G97-1326 Crabapples For Nebraska Landscapes, Don Steinegger, John E. Watkins

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the selection, care and disease possibilities of crabapples.

Many of the diminutive flowering trees are not hardy in Nebraska. One notable exception: the ornamental crabapple tree (Malus). By carefully selecting the planting site and the cultivar, the beauty of flowering crabs can be enjoyed in any part of the state.

Regardless of the season, crabapples lend landscape color and interest. The winter branch pattern and bark color are as much an asset as spring's flower color.

G97-1340 Firming Irrigation Furrows To Improve Irrigation Performance (Revised November 1999), Dean E. Eisenhauer, C. Dean Yonts Jan 1997

G97-1340 Firming Irrigation Furrows To Improve Irrigation Performance (Revised November 1999), Dean E. Eisenhauer, C. Dean Yonts

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes how using a furrow firming wheel improves furrow irrigation performance.

Nearly half of the irrigated acres in Nebraska are furrow irrigated. Higher pumping costs, water restrictions and water shortages are all factors encouraging efficiency-improving irrigation practices. Generally, reduced efficiency with furrow irrigation occurs in two ways: runoff or deep percolation. Although hard to eliminate, runoff can be controlled by: tailwater reuse systems; changing furrow stream size; or changing irrigation set time. Deep percolation is the loss of water below the root zone. The amount of deep percolation caused by irrigation is difficult to estimate unless irrigation application ...


G979-1337 Application Uniformity Of In-Canopy Sprinklers (Revised November 1999), C. Dean Yonts, William L. Kranz, Derrel L. Martin Jan 1997

G979-1337 Application Uniformity Of In-Canopy Sprinklers (Revised November 1999), C. Dean Yonts, William L. Kranz, Derrel L. Martin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes water management and system design considerations when using in-canopy sprinklers for center pivot irrigation systems. The goal, when using center pivot irrigation, is to uniformly distribute water on the soil surface. Uniform application of water combined with uniform infiltration of water into the soil gives plants equal access to water. As a method to reduce energy costs, many producers are converting their center pivot systems from high to medium or low pressure sprinkler packages. In response, sprinkler manufacturers have developed new devices for use above and below the center pivot pipeline to uniformly apply water at lower ...
