Herbicide Resistant Weeds, Alex R. Martin, Fred W. Roeth, Chad Lee Jan 2000

Herbicide Resistant Weeds, Alex R. Martin, Fred W. Roeth, Chad Lee

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The development of herbicide resistant weeds is described along with strategies to prevent development. Herbicide resistance refers to plants within a weed species that, after repeated use of a herbicide, are no longer controlled by normal rates of that herbicide. Herbicide resistance often develops in fields that have been sprayed with herbicides with the same site of action for several years. Herbicide resistance is usually attributed to slight genetic differences between resistant and susceptible plants. These changes occur at a frequency of one plant in a million or even a billion. Herbicide resistance is not dependent on the environment or ...


Ec00-829 Flexible Cash Leasing Of Cropland, Roger Selley, Bruce B. Johnson, H. Douglas Jose, John D. Cole Jan 2000

Ec00-829 Flexible Cash Leasing Of Cropland, Roger Selley, Bruce B. Johnson, H. Douglas Jose, John D. Cole

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Agreeing on a cash rent can be a challenging task. Typically there is considerable uncertainty about what prices and yields will be in the upcoming year, and anticipating revenues is further complicated with the uncertainty of farm program payments, particularly in low income years when Congress may appropriate unexpected assistance. Attempting to determine a cash rent to apply for more than one year adds to the challenge. Also, adjustments to rent are required over time to remain current with changes in farm program provisions, production costs, productivity and product price levels.

The expected costs and revenues used to establish a ...


G1374 Escherichia Coli: Testing For Process Control Verification,, Mindy Brashears, Dianne Peters Jan 2000

G1374 Escherichia Coli: Testing For Process Control Verification,, Mindy Brashears, Dianne Peters

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide was developed to help processors correctly perform carcass sampling in meat and poultry operations and interpret the results.

In July 1996, the U.S.D.A. published the Final Rule on Pathogen Reduction for meat and poultry processing facilities. Its goal is to reduce the occurrence of food-borne pathogens in meat and poultry products. The rule requires carcass sampling for "generic" E. coli in meat and poultry slaughter operations. The U.S.D.A. has developed guidelines for acceptable, marginal and unacceptable amounts of E. coli to be used by the processor to determine if their process is ...

Ec00-154 Precision Agriculture: Soil Sampling For Precision Agriculture, Richard B. Ferguson, Gary W. Hergert Jan 2000

Ec00-154 Precision Agriculture: Soil Sampling For Precision Agriculture, Richard B. Ferguson, Gary W. Hergert

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

As various aspects of precision agriculture are implemented in Nebraska, some of the most frequent questions asked by producers, fertilizer dealers and crop consultants relate to soil sampling. Should I soil sample this field on a grid? What grid spacing should I use? How often should I sample? Can I use a yield map to tell where to soil sample? All of these are good questions, but often we do not have definitive answers. Site-specific management research conducted in recent years in Nebraska, however, provides some direction on how to implement a soil sampling program for precision agriculture.


G00-1778 Field Windbreaks, James R. Brandle, Laurie Hodges Jan 2000

G00-1778 Field Windbreaks, James R. Brandle, Laurie Hodges

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

gricultural producers face many challenges as they try to balance efficient production systems with increasing environmental demands. For these systems to be successful, they must optimize the balance between inputs and final production. Field windbreaks are one way to increase yields while at the same time reducing inputs and improving both environmental quality and production efficiency. Windbreaks reduce wind speed and alter the microclimate in sheltered areas. Field windbreaks reduce wind erosion and the damage to crops caused by wind-blown soil. They improve water use efficiency, reduce risks associated with drought, and manage blowing snow.

Field windbreaks provide positive economic ...

Ec00-1879 Sorghum Ergot In The Northern Great Plains, Jim Stack Jan 2000

Ec00-1879 Sorghum Ergot In The Northern Great Plains, Jim Stack

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Sorghum is grown throughout Nebraska on approximately 0.6 million acres of land. It is grown as a forage crop as well as a grain crop. There is no significant commercial seed production in Nebraska. Grain sorghum is used domestically as livestock feed, in ethanol production, and to a limited extent as a food crop.

Grain sorghum is also exported to several countries. All sorghum hybrids (grain and forage) are susceptible to ergot disease. Ergot is a disease that impacts sorghum production directly by infecting unfertilized flowers and preventing seed development. Ergot also impacts sorghum production indirectly. Affected fields with ...
