G92-1090 Black Dot Disease Of Potato, Alexander D. Pavlista, Eric D. Kerr, Robert B. O'Keefe

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The cause, symptom, disease cycle, influencing factors, effects and control of black dot are described. Black dot of potato, a disease caused by the fungus Colletotrichum coccodes, was recognized in Australia and Europe, then was observed and described in Canada in 1921. Since then this disease has spread to many potato production areas of the United States; its occurrence was first reported in Nebraska in 1988. In the past few years, black dot has been recognized on infected potato tissue from several areas of the state. The increased incidence of black dot in Nebraska may have been favored by high ...


G92-1089 Control Of Pollurum And Typhoid Through Participation In The National And Nebraska Poultry Improvement Plans (Revised July 2002), Grasso M. Ebako, Del Wilmont Jan 1992

G92-1089 Control Of Pollurum And Typhoid Through Participation In The National And Nebraska Poultry Improvement Plans (Revised July 2002), Grasso M. Ebako, Del Wilmont

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Participation in the National Poultry Improvement Plan to prevent egg-transmitted diseases to small flocks, game birds, hobby, and exhibition flock owners is explained in this NebGuide.

The National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) is a cooperative state/federal program that was established in 1935 to reduce and eventually eliminate several diseases transmitted primarily through infected breeder flocks and theirs eggs. The plan's widespread acceptance among the commercial industry has almost completely eliminated Salmonella pullorum and Salmonella gallinarum from commercial breeding stocks. Participation in the plan has saved the commercial industry and small flock owners millions of dollars due to improved ...

Nf92-54 Let's Talk About Handling Stress, Pat Steffens

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

You need stress in your life! Does that surprise you? Perhaps so, but it is true. Without stress, life would be dull and unexciting. Stress adds flavor, challenge, and opportunity to life. Too much stress, however, can seriously affect your physical and mental well-being. A major challenge in this stress-filled world of today is to make the stress in your life work for you instead of against you.

G92-1097 Root And Crown Rot: Winterkill Complex Of Winter Wheat, John E. Watkins, Ben Doupnik, Jr., Eric D. Kerr, Robert N. Klein Jan 1992

G92-1097 Root And Crown Rot: Winterkill Complex Of Winter Wheat, John E. Watkins, Ben Doupnik, Jr., Eric D. Kerr, Robert N. Klein

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Root and crown rot--winterkill complex is discussed, including nature of the complex, symptoms, control, and management rationale. Root and crown rot of winter wheat is an interrelated disease complex caused by the interaction of infection of roots and crowns by Bipolaris sorokiniana and/or Fusarium graminearum and harsh winter conditions. It is an insidious, persistent and inconspicuous disease complex that reduces wheat yields each year. In extreme cases, entire fields or large areas within fields are killed. The ultimate effect is loss of stands, poor plant vigor, reduced yield and lower grain quality.

Ec92-1245 Buffalograss: A Warm-Season Native Grass For Turf, S.A. Deshazer, Terrance P. Riordan, Frederick P. Baxendale, Roch E. Gaussoin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Buffalograss is a native grass species which has prospered on the Great Plains for centuries. Both cyclic and prolonged droughts have challenged it to evolve water use efficiency and sod forming ability. People are considering this short, fine-leaved prairie grass for an ecologically sound and energy efficient turf.


G92-1107 Elm Leaf Beetle, David L. Keith, Frederick P. Baxendale, James A. Kalisch Jan 1992

G92-1107 Elm Leaf Beetle, David L. Keith, Frederick P. Baxendale, James A. Kalisch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

History, identification, and indoor and outdoor control of the elm leaf beetle are discussed.

The elm leaf beetle is an imported pest, first found in the United States in 1834. Common throughout Nebraska, it is almost exclusively a pest of elms, including the American, Siberian and other varieties. Japanese Zelkova is also readily attacked. Adults (beetles) vary in color from yellow to olive green, and have a black stripe near the outside of each wing cover. They can be confused with other beetles of similar appearance (western corn rootworm, striped cucumber beetle), but they are distinctive in that they occur ...


G92-1112 Lice Control On Cattle, John B. Campbell Jan 1992

G92-1112 Lice Control On Cattle, John B. Campbell

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Identifying and controlling lice on cattle both are covered here.

Cattle lice may be the most underestimated livestock insect in terms of economic losses. The USDA estimates that U.S. livestock producers lose $125 million a year to cattle lice.

Heavy louse populations cause lowered milk production, loss of flesh, stunted growth, general unthriftiness and anemia. "Chronic" or "carrier" cows may abort due to louse-induced anemia. During severe winters, louse-infested animals are more susceptible to respiratory diseases.


G92-1095 Equine Internal Parasites, Don Hudson, Dale Grotelueschen, Duane Rice Jan 1992

G92-1095 Equine Internal Parasites, Don Hudson, Dale Grotelueschen, Duane Rice

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Effective control programs for equine internal parasites.

All horses have internal parasites. Ninety percent of all the colic cases may be related to blood vessel damage caused by the migrating larvae of Strongylus vulgaris (blood worms). Fifty percent of the deaths in horses may be related to internal parasites.

Internal parasites have adapted themselves to the internal environment of their host animal and have become host-specific. Horse parasites can only exist in horses and cattle parasites only in cattle. If a cow eats the eggs or larvae of a horse parasite (or vice versa), the life cycle of the parasite ...


Ec92-270 Conducting Pig Feed Trials On The Farm, Duane Reese, Walter W. Stroup Jan 1992

Ec92-270 Conducting Pig Feed Trials On The Farm, Duane Reese, Walter W. Stroup

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The purpose of this publication is to provide fundamental information that must be understood before attempting to conduct a feed trial. The concepts and procedures described here are valid for most situations involving a comparison of two feeds. Any trial involving more than two feeds raises issues that are beyond the scope of this publication. Those issues are covered in university statistics courses on design and analysis of experiments.

We suggest that pork producers adopt a "best cost" feeding program tailored to the operation and based on sound nutritional principles. Feed cost per pound of gain is a major item ...

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes the physical characteristics, habits and management of the thirteen-lined ground squirrel.

Description

Thirteen-lined ground squirrels (Spermophilus tridecemlineatus) are common throughout the Great Plains. They have many common names such as "thirteen-liner" or "striped gopher." "Gopher" is a misnomer because true (pocket) gophers (Geomys bursarius and Thomomys talpoides) belong to another family of rodents.

G92-1098 Cultivators For Conservation Tillage, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa Jan 1992

G92-1098 Cultivators For Conservation Tillage, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Cultivating residue-covered fields and ridge-till considerations are among the topics covered here.

In any conventional, conservation or no-tillage planting system, crop cultivation can be an excellent method of weed control. Cultivators used in residue-covered fields must allow residue to flow through the implement without clogging.

Extra penetration force may be required to cultivate no-till fields as compared to tilled fields. While many high-clearance cultivators are designed to handle conservation tillage conditions, some older cultivators can be modified to work in residue-covered fields when residue flow and soil penetration are maintained.

Combining mechanical and chemical weed control is economical and effective ...
