Nf01-475 Creating A Strong Family: "I Love You, Bill", John Defrain Jan 2001

Nf01-475 Creating A Strong Family: "I Love You, Bill", John Defrain

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

We knew this would be difficult for people, especially in front of others. But we felt it was important to do for at least three reasons: so we could all get a better understanding of why human beings love each other; so we could get some good practice sharing these feelings; and so we could triple underline the importance of these feelings by sharing them with others. In human cultures, weddings are public events because they signify the sanctity of human connection for all who attend. A relationship enhancement workshop was another way of blessing humans' love for each other.

Ec01-153 Selecting Alfalfa Varieties For Nebraska 2001, Bruce Anderson, Michael Trammell, Patrick E. Reece

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Yield potential, pest resistance and seed price should be considered when selecting alfalfa varieties in Nebraska.

The most important variety decision for many farms and ranches is the selection of alfalfa. The choice of alfalfa variety affects production for three to 10 or more years, whereas varieties of annual crops can be changed every year.

Varieties that have been tested with commercial seed since 1991 for two or more years at locations in Nebraska and marketed in the state are shown in this 2001 extension circular revision.

G1430 Using The Sugar Roll Technique To Detect Varroa Mites In Honey Bee Colonies, Marion D. Ellis, Paula A. Acedo Jan 2001

G1430 Using The Sugar Roll Technique To Detect Varroa Mites In Honey Bee Colonies, Marion D. Ellis, Paula A. Acedo

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Description of a rapid and efficient technique for detecting and assessing varroa mite infestations using powdered sugar to dislodge mites from bees.

The varroa mite was first discovered in the United States in 1987. Globally, it is the most important pest of honey bees and it has caused extensive losses in feral and managed colonies. Once introduced, varroa mites have never been eradicated from any country or region, and beekeepers must adopt an integrated pest management strategy to protect their colonies. Early detection and assessment of infestation levels are important components of a varroa management plan. Since varroa mites feed ...

Ec01-809 Nebraska Farm Real Estate Market Developments 2000-01, Bruce B. Johnson, Peter Brummels, Lance Kuenning

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Nebraska's agricultural land base is considerable, being comprised of more than 45 million acres of land in farms and ranches according to the most recent 1997 Census of Agriculture. Currently, it's total estimated market value is more than $32 billion. There is much diversity to this base as one moves across the state, reflecting major differences in soils and climatic features which, in turn, affect agricultural productivity and the various non-agricultural uses. The result is a virtual collage of hundreds of local agricultural land markets, each having unique land value levels and market characteristics.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

And one doesn't have to look far to see loopy behavior among adults, either. Meetings at the office occasionally get out of control as we feed off each other's emotions, both negative and positive. Citizens in this country - and many others - often view national politics as one gigantic and long-running uncontrollable cybernetic feedback loop. As we strive to communicate effectively with each other in our families, the delicate balance lies in how we manage to keep the sparkle of positive emotion alive in our very intimate relationships with each other, while minimizing negative emotional interchanges that can easily ...


Ec01-157 Precision Agriculture: Untangling The Gps Data String, Viacheslav I. Adamchuk Jan 2001

Ec01-157 Precision Agriculture: Untangling The Gps Data String, Viacheslav I. Adamchuk

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Most people associate precision farming or site-specific management with the global positioning system (GPS). It is used to locate the antenna of aGPS receiver on Earth. GPS provides the opportunity to record a set of geographic coordinates that specify a particular field location. Therefore, field data collected using GPS technology is georeferenced. Processing of these data is complicated, and software packages designed for precision farming applications have built-in capabilities to interpret the GPS receiver output. However, some simple operations can be performed using standard office software. In this case, it is necessary to know the basics behind GPS data. The ...
