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.

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.

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.

Ec02-1565 Biology And Management Of Potato Insects, Robert J. Wright, Gary L. Hein, W. Wyatt Hoback, Alexander D. Pavlista Jan 2002

Ec02-1565 Biology And Management Of Potato Insects, Robert J. Wright, Gary L. Hein, W. Wyatt Hoback, Alexander D. Pavlista

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

A variety of insects can damage potatoes in Nebraska. Insects may feed directly on the tubers and damage the harvestable crop, or they may indirectly damage the crop by feeding on leaves or stems. If severe enough, indirect damage may reduce harvestable yield and quality. Insect feeding also may be important because some insects (e.g., aphids) may transmit plant diseases such as viruses when they feed, or others (e.g., psyllids) may inject toxins. This publication reviews the identification, biology, and management of common insect pests of potatoes in Nebraska. The basis for a successful integrated pest management (IPM ...

Ec02-179 Managing Livestock Manure To Protect Environmental Quality, Michael A. Reynolds, Brian L. Benham, Richard B. Ferguson, Christopher G. Henry, Charles A. Shapiro, James P. Stack, Charles S. Wortmann Jan 2002

Ec02-179 Managing Livestock Manure To Protect Environmental Quality, Michael A. Reynolds, Brian L. Benham, Richard B. Ferguson, Christopher G. Henry, Charles A. Shapiro, James P. Stack, Charles S. Wortmann

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This book covers the land application part of manure management. With increasing regulations, the livestock producer needs to understand the scientific principles that affect manure transformations and how to use these principles to manage the manure for maximum fertilizer value with minimal environmental impact. Improved land application of manure is one part of the solution, but we suggest that the producer evaluate the quantity of nutrients arriving on the farm as feed, animals, and fertilizer compared to the total that is exported. Achieving a nutrient balance will reduce potential environmental hazards often associated with animal agriculture.
