Ec91-1767 Windbreaks For Rural Living, James R. Brandle, Teresa K. Boes, Bruce Wight

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

In many parts of the United States, the constant force of the wind exaggerates daily weather conditions and can make living in these areas seem unbearable. A well-designed windbreak around the home, ranch, or farmstead slows the wind and improves the overall environment. Farm and ranch windbreaks conserve energy, provide snow control, improve working and recreational environments, enhance wildlife populations, provide visual screening and dust control, and increase the production of various wood and food products.

Ranch and farmstead windbreaks provide the greatest benefits in areas with high winds, large amounts of snow, extreme temperature fluctuations, or minimal natural forest ...

G91-1028 Preparing Fabric For Use, Rose Marie Tondl

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Grain perfection is the goal for people who sew.

Smart styling and a professional look in clothing construction require correct use of the grain of the fabric. No formula or method can conceal a poorly cut garment.

Garment pieces cut or pulled off grain will not fit correctly and will hang poorly when worn. Whether simple or elaborate in design, the fabric shows whether or not it has been cut on the exact grain.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This publication addresses the identification, prevention and control of internal parasites in swine and lists characteristics of principle dewormers.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses how to set up and operate liquid herbicide application equipment on tillage, planting and directed spray equipment.

Some herbicides require incorporation to obtain consistent weed control. Maintaining residue cover to reduce soil loss on erodible soils makes it necessary to incorporate herbicide while minimizing tillage. This need, combined with many row crop producers' preference for band application to reduce herbicide costs, creates some application challenges.


G91-1020 Plumbing Systems Of Agricultural Sprayers, Robert D. Grisso, David L. Varner, Robert N. Klein Jan 1991

G91-1020 Plumbing Systems Of Agricultural Sprayers, Robert D. Grisso, David L. Varner, Robert N. Klein

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Properly adjusting and maintaining the plumbing systems of agricultural sprayers can improve the efficiency and uniformity of chemical applications. The plumbing systems of agricultural sprayers are usually considered foolproof. Sprayer problems may occur however, when plumbing and/or modifications are improperly done or maintenance is ignored. Retrofitting, addition of electrical control systems, and replacement of pumps or nozzles require knowledge of the plumbing system and how changes will affect sprayer performance. Routine maintenance of the plumbing systems is essential.
