G98-1348 Cercospora Leaf Spot Of Sugar Beet, Eric D. Kerr, Albert Weiss Jan 1998

G98-1348 Cercospora Leaf Spot Of Sugar Beet, Eric D. Kerr, Albert Weiss

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes the symptoms, factors favoring infection, prediction and control measures for Cercospora leaf spot of sugar beet.

Cercospora leaf spot, caused by the fungus Cercospora beticola, is the most serious leaf disease of sugar beet in western Nebraska. This disease has significantly reduced root and sugar yield in several production areas in the North Platte River Valley and was a major reason for the shift of sugar beet production from eastern Nebraska to other regions in the 1960s. Many vegetable and field crops and a wide range of weed species can serve as hosts for this fungus.

Nf98-375 What Is The "Cooperative Agreement" For Endangered Species Habitat Along The Central Platte River?, Gary R. Lingle, Thomas G. Franti

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The governors of Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming and the Secretary of the Interior signed a historic agreement on July 1, 1997.

The agreement has two main objectives: 1. To develop and implement a "recovery ...


G98-1360 Drinking Water: Copper, Sharon Skipton, Delynn Hay Jan 1998

G98-1360 Drinking Water: Copper, Sharon Skipton, Delynn Hay

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Too much copper in the human body can cause stomach and intestinal distress such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps. This NebGuide discusses how to determine if copper is in a domestic water supply and options that can be taken to reduce the copper in water. Copper rarely occurs naturally in water. Most copper contamination in drinking water happens in the water delivery system, as a result of corrosion of the copper pipes or fittings. Copper piping and fittings are widely used in household plumbing.


G98-1356 Polyacrylamide – A Method To Reduce Soil Erosion, C. Dean Yonts, Brian Benham Jan 1998

G98-1356 Polyacrylamide – A Method To Reduce Soil Erosion, C. Dean Yonts, Brian Benham

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes polyacrylamide, what it is, how it can be used to reduce soil erosion due to, irrigation and what water management changes must be considered.

Topsoil loss can mean a long-term reduction in soil productivity, crop yield and the life expectancy of downstream storage reservoirs. In the short term, producers are faced with reuse pits to clean or a buildup of soil at the lower ends of fields which must be redistributed. Measures must be taken to reduce or eliminate soil erosion and sustain Nebraska's soil resource.


G98-1369 Drinking Water: Nitrate And Methemoglobinemia ("Blue Baby" Syndrome), Sharon Skipton, Delynn Hay Jan 1998

G98-1369 Drinking Water: Nitrate And Methemoglobinemia ("Blue Baby" Syndrome), Sharon Skipton, Delynn Hay

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the blood disorder methemoglobinemia, its effect on infants and prevention methods. Methemoglobinemia is a blood disorder caused when nitrite interacts with the hemoglobin in red blood cells. Unlike hemoglobin, the methemoglobin formed in this interaction cannot carry sufficient oxygen to the body's cells and tissues. Although methemoglobinemia is rare among adults, cases have been reported among infants, where nitrate-contaminated well water was used to prepare formula and other baby foods. Nitrate in well water may result from point sources such as sewage disposal systems and livestock facilities, from nonpoint sources such as fertilized cropland, parks, golf ...


G98-1374 Escherichia Coli: Testing For Process Control Verification: Beef Carcass Sampling, Mindy Brashears, Dianne Peters Jan 1998

G98-1374 Escherichia Coli: Testing For Process Control Verification: Beef Carcass Sampling, Mindy Brashears, Dianne Peters

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

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 controlling microbial hazards. If E. coli testing indicates that the process is not in control of the microbial hazards, then ...

Nebraska's Forest Resource

Forests cover 947,000 acres in Nebraska. Other land with scattered tree cover, including narrow wooded strips along streams, windbreaks, and wooded pasture lands, occupy an additional 1,252,000 acres. Managing Nebraska's forest lands can produce significant benefits without negative impacts; however, careless activities in woodlands can damage water resources, soils, wildlife habitat, aesthetic values, and even the ability to produce future benefits.

G98-1344 Basics Of Feeding Horses: Feeding Management, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1998

G98-1344 Basics Of Feeding Horses: Feeding Management, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide outlines appropriate practices for feeding horses.

Often, nutritional management of the equine is a misunderstood topic. Successful nutritional management depends upon combining information on the nutrient requirements of different horses and their eating behaviors with the knowledge of how to best meet those requirements. Proper nutritional management is extremely critical in the horse due to the unique arrangement and anatomy of its digestive tract. Often, it is the feeding method, not feed composition, which leads to digestive disorders in horses. This NebGuide includes information on the basic, daily feeding management for horses.

G98-1343 Fall Vegetable Gardening, Dale T. Lindgren, Susan D. Schoneweis Jan 1998

G98-1343 Fall Vegetable Gardening, Dale T. Lindgren, Susan D. Schoneweis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the possibilities for and needs of a fall garden.

Though often overlooked by the gardener, planting vegetables in July and August for fall production is an excellent practice. Late plantings of cool- and warm-season vegetables can extend the harvest long after spring-planted crops have ceased production. Most cool-season vegetables grow as well as or better than those planted in the spring as they mature during shorter, cooler days. Flavors of vegetables maturing in the cool, crisp days of autumn are often sweeter and milder than those grown during hot summer weather. This is especially true for cole ...
