G96-1307 Bioengineering For Hillslope, Streambank And Lakeshore Erosion Control, Thomas G. Franti Jan 1996

G96-1307 Bioengineering For Hillslope, Streambank And Lakeshore Erosion Control, Thomas G. Franti

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes bioengineering techniques for hillslope, streambank and lakeshore erosion control. Tips for a successful bioengineering installation and demonstration project are described. Soil erosion occurs whenever water meets land with enough force to move soil. Often this occurs along streambanks and lakeshores or where excess water flows over hillslopes. While streambank and hillslope erosion can be dramatic, especially after large rainfalls or floods, normal streamflows, excess runoff from urbanized areas and wave action along lakeshores continually erode soil. Erosion can be severe, as is the case in many man-made lakes, where shorelines are composed of easily erodible soil. Traditional ...


G96-1302 Managing Varroa In The Midwest, Marion D. Ellis, Frederick P. Baxendale Jan 1996

G96-1302 Managing Varroa In The Midwest, Marion D. Ellis, Frederick P. Baxendale

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

There are important regional differences in varroa population dynamics and control. This NebGuide offers recommendations on varroa management for beekeepers in the Midwest.

Varroa management has become an essential aspect of successful beekeeping since the mite was first discovered in the United States in 1987. Unlike most parasites which coexist with their host, varroa eventually destroy honey bee colonies of European descent. A good understanding of this important bee parasite is essential for successful beekeeping.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Ways to reduce atrazine availability, reduce the amount of water runoff, and reduce the impact of the first runoff are covered here. Each year growers face many decisions when planning for a new growing season, including selection of an economical weed control program. Because of their ease of use and effectiveness, many producers use preemergence herbicides to control weeds. Because of its low cost, corn and sorghum growers often select atrazine or an atrazine combination. Nebraska corn growers annually apply an estimated 6.3 million pounds of atrazine. Atrazine is an effective and low-cost herbicide, but there is a hidden ...

Ec96-1768 Windbreak Management, James R. Brandle, Craig Stange Jan 1996

Ec96-1768 Windbreak Management, James R. Brandle, Craig Stange

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The windbreaks on your farm are an important part of the agricultural landscape. They provide protection for the farmstead, livestock, and crops; provide habitat for wildlife; and contribute to an overall healthy environment for you and your family. They are living systems with youth, maturity, and old age. Like any other living thing they need proper care and management in order to continue to function at their best.

Windbreak management requires an understanding of how your windbreak works. Your goal is to maintain the health and vigor of individual trees and shrubs while maintaining the overall structure of the windbreak ...


Ec96-1770 Windbreaks For Snow Management, James R. Brandle, H. Doak Nickerson Jan 1996

Ec96-1770 Windbreaks For Snow Management, James R. Brandle, H. Doak Nickerson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

In areas of high winds and blowing snow, windbreaks can reduce the amount of effort spent on snow management. They can be designed to spread snow across a large area or to confine it to a relatively small storage area. The design of your windbreak will depend on your objective. Field windbreaks designed to distribute snow evenly across a field should be tall and porous. In contrast, windbreaks designed to capture snow and control drifting should have multiple rows with high density. There is no one set design, number of rows, or width of planting that is ideal for every ...

Over the next few hundred years, the earth may undergo a general cooling trend. This trend is consistent with the regular shifts into and out of ice age conditions that have characterized the earth's climate history of the last 50,000 ...

Ec96-780 Equipment Wheel Spacing For Ridge-Till And No-Till Row Crops, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa, Alice J. Jones, Todd A. Peterson Jan 1996

Ec96-780 Equipment Wheel Spacing For Ridge-Till And No-Till Row Crops, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa, Alice J. Jones, Todd A. Peterson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Use of ridge-till and no-till systems has increased dramatically since the early 1980s when ridge-planting equipment and conservation tillage cultivators became readily available. The ridge-till system involves the establishment and annual re-forming of permanent, single-row ridges into which crops are planted year after year. To obtain maximum productivity with the ridge-plant system (and many believe with no-till systems), all wheel traffic should be confined to interrows. Wheel traffic on ridges can alter the ridge profile and condition of crop residue. Ridge deformation or excessive tire sinkage can affect subsequent planter performance, crop emergence and the overall productivity of both ridge-till ...

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Developing an integrated control program including prescribed burning, herbicides, and cutting may be the best way to control eastern redcedar in Nebraska, according to recent research. Eastern redcedar is a serious threat to grassland productivity. Some control methods may be too expensive to use on grasslands, but in many cases, an integrated approach combining fire with more intensive follow-up methods will provide reasonable control at an acceptable cost.
