Cooperative Extension Program Development And The Community-University Engagement Movement: Perspectives From Two Lifelong Extension Professionals, Karen Bruns, Nancy K. Franz Jun 2015

Cooperative Extension Program Development And The Community-University Engagement Movement: Perspectives From Two Lifelong Extension Professionals, Karen Bruns, Nancy K. Franz

Education Publications

For over 100 years, Cooperative Extension has been bringing university research and resources to communities to help them address critical issues. Historically, Extension was one of the first university engagement models in the country. In the last 20 years, community-university engagement models on campus have intersected and competed with Extension work. These engagement models are challenging Extension’s long-established Program Development Model. Extension is only one vehicle or methodology for engagement work. For Extension to continue to leverage an important place in community-university engagement, it must more fully align the Program Development Model with the standards for assessing successful community-university ...


Programming For The Public Good: Ensuring Public Value Through The Cooperative Extension Program Development Model, Nancy K. Franz Jun 2015

Programming For The Public Good: Ensuring Public Value Through The Cooperative Extension Program Development Model, Nancy K. Franz

Education Publications

Effective Cooperative Extension programs produce important private and public value for individuals, families, businesses, and communities. However, the public value of Extension programming often goes unmeasured and unarticulated. Extension needs to reclaim its role as a key provider of public value for Land Grant Universities through strong educational programs driven by infusing public value into all elements of the Extension Program Development Model. This article describes Extension’s public value movement including organizational, professional, program, and scholarship development efforts to enhance public good effectiveness articulation. Lessons learned, implications, and next steps for Extension’s public value success through a strong ...

G05-1563 Manure Incorporation And Crop Residue Cover: Part I: Reduction Of Cover, David P. Shelton Jan 2005

G05-1563 Manure Incorporation And Crop Residue Cover: Part I: Reduction Of Cover, David P. Shelton

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Residue cover reduction caused by soil-engaging components typically used with tank spreaders and towed hose systems to apply liquid or slurry manure.

Manure incorporation represents a compromise between best management practices for soil erosion control and manure management. Manure should be incorporated into the soil for odor control, increased availability of nutrients, and control of potential manure runoff; however, disturbing the soil and crop residue may increase soil erosion and water runoff. This NebGuide summarizes the results of a field study to determine the influences on crop residue cover of common equipment used to simultaneously apply and incorporate manure.

Nf05-592 Both Partners Are Responsible For The Relationship, Kathy Bosch Jan 2005

Nf05-592 Both Partners Are Responsible For The Relationship, Kathy Bosch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Both partners in a marriage are equally responsible for nurturing the relationship and "keeping the spark alive." Too often society has placed this responsibility on the woman when it should be equally shared. Women often have accepted the "caretaker" role partially because of their connectedness with children and family; however, both partners have a great stake in the well-being of the marriage and should care deeply about keeping the relationship viable and healthy. One person cannot strengthen the relationship alone. It takes two working together to strengthen the partner relationship.

G04-1537 Wind Erosion And Its Control, Drew J. Lyon, John A. Smith Jan 2004

G04-1537 Wind Erosion And Its Control, Drew J. Lyon, John A. Smith

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses how wind erosion occurs and presents methods for reducing wind erosion on land devoted to crop production. Wind erosion is widespread on agricultural land in the Great Plains, particularly in the semi-arid regions. Wind erosion physically removes the most fertile part of the soil (organic matter, clay, and silt) and lowers soil productivity. This loss in productivity increases the costs of producing crops. Blowing soil can reduce seedling survival and growth, depress crop yields, and increase the susceptibility of plants to certain types of stress, including diseases.

G04-1542 Planning An Intergenerational™ Dialogue, Laverne Barrett, Andrea J. Gage Jan 2004

G04-1542 Planning An Intergenerational™ Dialogue, Laverne Barrett, Andrea J. Gage

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Intergenerational Dialogues can help communities address important issues. This NebGuide offers guidance.

The Intergenerational™Dialogue

An Intergenerational™Dialogue is usually a one-day, six-hour event that allows the five living generations to come together to create an action plan to address a specific community issue. When all age groups of the community are involved in problem solving, it is easier to gain solution commitment and a greater response to planned action. Does this sound too good to be true? The following is a descriptive outline for planning an Intergenerational Dialogue in a community. The basis for the NebGuide is the work ...

Ec03-1569 Grasshopper Identification Guide For Cropland Grasshoppers: Summer Feeding Species, Ronald C. Seymour, Gary L. Hein, John B. Campbell, James A. Kalisch Jan 2003

Ec03-1569 Grasshopper Identification Guide For Cropland Grasshoppers: Summer Feeding Species, Ronald C. Seymour, Gary L. Hein, John B. Campbell, James A. Kalisch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Summer feeding grasshoppers can cause severe damage to nearly all crops when they are abundant in field borders. Identification of the grasshoppers present is important because only four species are likely to cause significant crop damage. These four species are spur-throated grasshoppers that have a rounded head and a spur between their front legs. They are more common in weed-infested field borders and weedy adjacent pastures, but will move to cropland after consuming most of the weeds. Summer feeding grasshoppers overwinter as eggs and hatch through much of May and June.

Ec03-1568 Grasshopper Identification Guide For Rangeland And Pasture Summer Feeding Species, Ronald C. Seymour, John B. Campbell, Gary L. Hein, James A. Kalisch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Many kinds of summer-feeding grasshoppers are found in Nebraska rangeland and pastures. Of these, the six species listed in this guide are most likely to be numerous during outbreak years. These species overwinter as eggs and hatch through much of May and June. When abundant they can cause severe damage to rangeland and pastures, especially when dry conditions limit grass growth. Identification of the species present is important because some have greater potential for damage than others.


Ec03-1567 Grasshopper Identification Guide For Rangeland Grasshoppers: Fall/Spring Feeding Species, Ronald C. Seymour, John B. Campbell, Gary L. Hein Jan 2003

Ec03-1567 Grasshopper Identification Guide For Rangeland Grasshoppers: Fall/Spring Feeding Species, Ronald C. Seymour, John B. Campbell, Gary L. Hein

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

On rare occasions, high population of early season range grasshoppers coincide with slow growth of spring grass, causing economic loss. Most early season range grasshoppers overwinter in the nymphal stage. These grasshoppers survive by hiding under debris and organic matter.
