G94-1221 Checking The Performance Of Your Landscape Irrigation System, Don Steinegger, Roch E. Gaussoin, Delynn Hay Jan 1994

G94-1221 Checking The Performance Of Your Landscape Irrigation System, Don Steinegger, Roch E. Gaussoin, Delynn Hay

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide outlines methods to assess and improve landscape irrigation performance.

A properly designed and functioning irrigation system can save water, improve plant appearance, and reduce non-point source pollution. An irrigation system also must apply water uniformly, at a rate that the soil can absorb, and the proper amount to meet the water needs of the landscape plants. Runoff can result when an improperly functioning system applies water faster than the soil can absorb it. This runoff can carry applied fertilizer, such as nitrogen, as well as some pesticides into the streets and eventually into storm drains. Another concern is ...

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) to protect employees on farms and in forests, nurseries, and greenhouses from exposure to agricultural pesticides (general or restricted use). The standard covers workers in areas treated with pesticides and employees who handle pesticides in the production of agricultural plants or commodities. It requires employers to protect two types of agricultural employees: agricultural workers and pesticide handlers (see definitions). The standard is ...

Anthracnose diseases affect a wide variety of plants including many popular shade trees. Sycamore, ash, oak, maple, and walnut commonly exhibit symptoms each spring. Although the symptoms may appear serious, anthracnose diseases rarely kill trees. In most cases, healthy trees quickly recover from anthracnose infections with little damage to their long-term health.

G94-1198 Switchgrass And Big Bluestem For Grazing And Hay, Robert B. Mitchell, Lowell E. Moser, Bruce Anderson, Steven S. Waller

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The grazing management and cultural practices discussed in this NebGuide can make switchgrass and big bluestem high quality summer forage. Switchgrass and big bluestem are native warm-season grasses that can provide abundant, high-quality forage during summer. Switchgrass and big bluestem produce 70 to 80 percent of their growth after June 1 in Nebraska, while more than 75 percent of cool-season grass growth, such as bromegrass and bluegrass, occurs before June 1. Therefore, switchgrass and big bluestem can provide forage to graze after cool-season pastures have been utilized. However, switchgrass and big bluestem must be managed differently than cool-season grasses. Poor ...


Ec94-738 Using Agricultural Anhydrous Ammonia Safely, Robert D. Grisso, David Morgan, Rollin D. Schnieder Jan 1994

Ec94-738 Using Agricultural Anhydrous Ammonia Safely, Robert D. Grisso, David Morgan, Rollin D. Schnieder

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Anhydrous ammonia is one of the most efficient and widely used sources of nitrogen for row-crop production. Because it is a cheap source of nitrogen and readily available, large quantities of anhydrous ammonia are used as nitrogen fertilizer.

Anhydrous ammonia has disadvantages, especially in handling. It must be stored and handled under high pressure, which requires specially designed and well-maintained equipment. In addition, to ensure operator safety, workers must be trained to handle this product and to follow strict work procedures.

Techniques are described in this NebGuide for excluding rodents from drains, pipes, feed bunks, bins, and storage containers.

Rodents often travel along pipes, electrical cables, conduits, drains, and other equipment to gain access to buildings used for housing livestock and storing feed. Rodent-proof materials should be installed to prevent access to buildings along these routes. Additional methods to consider in an integrated pest management (IPM) program include sanitation, toxicants, and trapping.
