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.

Nf00-438 Critical Access Hospitals: An Opportunity For Rural Nebraska, John Roberts, Judy Weber, Mary Ellen Rider Jan 2000

Nf00-438 Critical Access Hospitals: An Opportunity For Rural Nebraska, John Roberts, Judy Weber, Mary Ellen Rider

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebFact describes The advantages of living in a rural community are many. Sometimes rural Nebraskans choose this lifestyle, giving up the conveniences of a larger city, to live what they perceive to be a better life. Quality health care, however, is not a convenience; it's a necessity. Because rural hospitals are so unique, they require more flexibility from government regulations and federal policies. This helps them continue to provide access to cost-effective, quality health care services.


G646 Sphaeropsis Tip Blight Of Pines, Loren J. Giesler Jan 2000

G646 Sphaeropsis Tip Blight Of Pines, Loren J. Giesler

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The symptoms and identification, disease cycle and control of Sphaeropsis tip blight.

Browning and death of tips is quite common in older, well-established pine plantings. Such damage is often due to Sphaeropsis tip blight, a fungal disease caused by Sphaeropsis sapinea (syn. Diplodia pinea). Infection kills major branches and may even kill the entire tree under severe disease pressure.

Sphaeropsis sapinea can infect young trees, but the disease becomes increasingly more common and destructive as trees approach 30 years of age. Tip blight commonly occurs in landscape, windbreak and park plantings; but is seldom found in natural pine stands. Several ...

G00-1404 Radon In Nebraska Homes: Healthy Indoor Air For Healtlhy Nebraskans (Revised October 2003), Rebecca L. Versch, Shirley Niemeyer Jan 2000

G00-1404 Radon In Nebraska Homes: Healthy Indoor Air For Healtlhy Nebraskans (Revised October 2003), Rebecca L. Versch, Shirley Niemeyer

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas emitted from uranium, a naturally occurring mineral in rocks and soil. Normally, radon rises up through the soil and then dissipates in the air outside. Radon becomes a concern, however, when it seeps in through openings such as cracks, loose-fitting pipes, sump pits, dirt floors, slab joints, or block walls and accumulates in the home.

This publication will help householders understand radon — what it is, its effect on heatlh, how to test for it, and some remodeling or new building techniques that can reduce radon levels in the home.


Nf00-429 Controlling Pond Algae With Barley Straw, John C. Holz Jan 2000

Nf00-429 Controlling Pond Algae With Barley Straw, John C. Holz

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Algae are microscopic, free-floating plants which comprise a critical component of a lake's food web. They are fed upon by tiny animals called zooplankton which are an important food source for fish. Algae color the water green or brown, and uncontrolled growth can lead to nuisance surface scums, poor water clarity, noxious odors and an overall reduction in the lake's recreational value. Excessive levels or "blooms" of algae occur when nutrients, especially phosphorus, are abundant. After taking steps to reduce the amount of phosphorus entering a lake, it may be desirable to control the algae growth directly. Typically ...

Ec00-1759 Nebraska Register Of Champion Trees 2000, Scott J. Josiah

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Nebraska is famous for its sports champions, but how about Champion Trees? While Nebraska is considered a "prairie state," trees have always played a prominent role in the quality of life of Nebraskans. Native trees were used to build the first pioneer homes. They also were used to heat them and protect them from wind.

The Nebraska Champion Tree program identifies and recognizes the largest living specimen of all native and the most common introduced tree species in Nebraska.


G00-1417 Site Preparation: Key To Successful Conservation Tree Planting In Western Nebraska (Revised February 2002), Doak Nickerson Jan 2000

G00-1417 Site Preparation: Key To Successful Conservation Tree Planting In Western Nebraska (Revised February 2002), Doak Nickerson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Establishing a conservation tree planting can be a challenge in semiarid regions like western Nebraska, where annual precipitation of 20 inches or less is the norm. Tree planting failure commonly occurs as a result of poor site preparation coupled with inadequate weed and grass control the first three to five years after planting. Effective site preparation begins the year before planting. The results help young trees survive and grow in several ways. This NebGuide explains when and how to do site preparation for conservation tree planting in Western Nebraska.


Ec00-280 Hiring Dairy Personnel: Making The Process Easier, Jeffrey F. Keown Jan 2000

Ec00-280 Hiring Dairy Personnel: Making The Process Easier, Jeffrey F. Keown

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Position descriptions are essential. A detailed position, or job, description can help you as an employer identify and eliminate applicants who will not perform well on the job and gives you justifiable grounds for terminating an employee who does not perform the job satisfactorily.

On most dairy farms, employees can be grouped into three categories: herd managers, feeders or outdoor workers, and milkers. This extension circular discusses the description for each category, how to start the hiring process, and questions that may be asked during interviewing and after hiring for a position on the dairy farm.
