G96-1300 Insects That Feed On Corn Ears, David L. Keith, J. F. Witkowski Jan 1996

G96-1300 Insects That Feed On Corn Ears, David L. Keith, J. F. Witkowski

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

How to identify mature and immature insects that infest and damage ears of corn.

Several kinds of insects infest the developing ears of corn, raising farmers' concerns and sometimes causing economic damage. Some of these insects can reduce both yield and quality of seed corn, pop corn, sweet corn and field corn. Control decisions depend in part on the economics of the corn crop produced. In many cases, particularly in field corn where the value of the crop per acre is somewhat lower, the insects may not be sufficiently damaging to require control. The higher value of seed corn compared ...


G96-1305 Water Runoff From Sprinkler Irrigation: A Case Study, Norman L. Klocke, William L. Kranz, C. Dean Yonts, Kelly Wertz Jan 1996

G96-1305 Water Runoff From Sprinkler Irrigation: A Case Study, Norman L. Klocke, William L. Kranz, C. Dean Yonts, Kelly Wertz

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide illustrates the influence of soil texture, topography and irrigation system characteristics on potential runoff.

When water is applied to a field through a sprinkler irrigation system, it should soak into the soil where it lands rather than drain to a low spot or off the field altogether. Runoff causes non-uniformity of water application, poor irrigation efficiency and possible leaching of chemicals to the groundwater. Some systems like LEPA (Low Energy Precision Application) are designed so water does not immediately soak into the soil. However, proper LEPA designs also call for tillage practices that hold the water on the ...


G96-1281 Spring Freeze Probabilities, Steven J. Meyer, Allen L. Dutcher Jan 1996

G96-1281 Spring Freeze Probabilities, Steven J. Meyer, Allen L. Dutcher

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Spring freeze probabilities, based on 45 years of data, are examined for 48 locations in Nebraska. The effect of spring freezes on Nebraska's main crops is also discussed.

The potential of a late spring freeze is of great concern to farmers, gardeners, nurserymen, and other plant growers. A climatological analysis of spring freeze events across Nebraska can provide a measure of the risk involved with planting at a certain time of spring.


G96-1312 Autumn Freeze Probabilities, Steven J. Meyer, Allen L. Dutcher Jan 1996

G96-1312 Autumn Freeze Probabilities, Steven J. Meyer, Allen L. Dutcher

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Autumn freeze probabilities based on 47 years of data are examined for 48 locations in Nebraska.

The potential of an early autumn freeze is of great concern to farmers, gardeners, and other plant growers. A climatological analysis of autumn freeze events across Nebraska can provide a measure of the risk involved with planting different hybrids, varieties and cultivars.


Nf96-310 Costs Of Harvesting And Hauling Corn Stalks In Large Round Bales, H. Douglas Jose, Lance L. Brown Jan 1996

Nf96-310 Costs Of Harvesting And Hauling Corn Stalks In Large Round Bales, H. Douglas Jose, Lance L. Brown

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebFact calculates the costs of harvesting corn stalks for either livestock fodder or industrial uses.
