G99-1395 Soybean Seeding Rates, Roger Wesley Elmore, James E. Specht Jan 1999

G99-1395 Soybean Seeding Rates, Roger Wesley Elmore, James E. Specht

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Recommended soybean seeding rates, stand assessment and replanting rates based on Nebraska field research are addressed in this NebGuide. The soybean stand looked horrible late that May. The field had a good seed bed at planting, but rain after planting crusted the soil over the seed furrows. Rain was in the short-term forecast. All other row crops were planted and looked fine, but this field concerned the producer.


Ec99-794 On-Farm Storage Of Dry Edible Beans: A Survey Of Nebraka Growers And Storage Guidelines, Thomas L. Holman, John A. Smith Jan 1999

Ec99-794 On-Farm Storage Of Dry Edible Beans: A Survey Of Nebraka Growers And Storage Guidelines, Thomas L. Holman, John A. Smith

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Dry edible bean producers in Nebraska typically deliver their crop to local bean dealers directly from the field, for either immediate sale or storage. Estimates are that less than 5 percent of Nebraska growers store part or all of their dry edible bean harvest in on-farm storage. In contrast, a much higher percentage of dry edible bean producers in other growing regions, particularly North Dakota and Michigan, use on-farm storage in their management plan. In Nebraska, corn and wheat producers are most likely to store all or part of their harvested grain on-farm. Why do so few Nebraska dry edible ...

G99-1375 Lilacs, Dale T. Lindgren, Don Steinegger, Todd Morrisey Jan 1999

G99-1375 Lilacs, Dale T. Lindgren, Don Steinegger, Todd Morrisey

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses lilac species, propagation, culture and pests.

Lilacs are among the most versatile shrubs grown in Nebraska. They come in various shapes, sizes, flower types and flower colors. Time of flowering also varies with species and cultivars. Lilacs can be used statewide for wind screens, hedges, accent plants or strictly for flower beauty and fragrance. Their drought and winter hardiness makes them easy to grow. They can survive, even when neglected, but perform better with care. Good soil drainage and full sun exposure are essential for optimal performance.

A third species, the southern corn rootworm, D. undecimpunctata howardi Barber, causes little economic damage to corn and has not been shown to overwinter in Nebraska. This publication will focus on the biology and management of the western and northern corn rootworms.

G99-1390 Altering Swine Manure By Diet Modification, Duane Reese, Richard K. Koelsch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide explores options for altering the nitrogen and phosphorus content of swine manure.

There are situations in which it is necessary to change the nutrient content and/or the odor-producing potential of swine manure in order for pork production to thrive. For example, current Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) permit procedures for livestock facilities require producers to document that sufficient land is available for crop use of the nitrogen (N) in manure. If sufficient land is not available for managing nutrients in manure, producers can alter the nitrogen and phosphorus content of swine manure by modifying the pig ...


G99-1388 Seam Finishes For A Plain Seam, Rose Marie Tondl Jan 1999

G99-1388 Seam Finishes For A Plain Seam, Rose Marie Tondl

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide covers seam finishes for a plain seam.

A plain seam is the basic element in all garment construction. It is created by stitching two pieces of fabric together, usually 5/8 inch from the cut edge using 10-12 stitches per inch. It is used with a variety of fabrics and found in all areas of a garment. Unless noted differently in the pattern instructions, the seam allowance is pressed open and an appropriate seam finish is used. For fabrics that ravel excessively, consider finishing the edge of the fabric before sewing the seam.

Ec99-1877 Damping Off, Root Rots, And Vascular Disorders Of Soybean, Loren J. Giesler Jan 1999

Ec99-1877 Damping Off, Root Rots, And Vascular Disorders Of Soybean, Loren J. Giesler

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Soybeans are grown on nearly 4 million acres in Nebraska and are threatened by several diseases, soil-borne fungal diseases being the most common (for growers in the Midwest). Early season damping off and root rots often are followed by premature death, which in many instances is attributed to fungal infections earlier in the growing season causing root and cortical rots and vascular disorders.

This extension circular discusses these diseases, their symptoms and control.


Ec99-455 Starting An Investment Club, Leanne Manning, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue Jan 1999

Ec99-455 Starting An Investment Club, Leanne Manning, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

When establishing an investment club, one of the most important things for the group to decide is the club's purpose. If all the members are interested in getting rich quickly, the investment club is not the answer. If, on the other hand, members view it as a chance to learn over the years about selecting and making wise investments, the investment club is a great way to accomplish this goal. Investing in the stock market is a long-term proposition and one that should not be taken lightly. Forming an investment club means going into business with 10 to 20 ...
