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 ...

G92-1080 Farmstead Safety Evaluation Guide, Gerald R. Bodman Jan 1992

G92-1080 Farmstead Safety Evaluation Guide, Gerald R. Bodman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Safe working conditions for personnel and safe, healthful living conditions for animals are critical requirements in the design of all farmsteads.

All farmsteads periodically should be evaluated for potential hazards and conditions that could lead to injury, death, or premature building failure or loss. Some hazards develop with time and are easily overlooked. Others are the result of poor planning or just being "too busy." To assess the safety of your farmstead and buildings, answer the following questions. Any question that cannot be answered with a firm "yes" indicates a need for corrective action.


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 ...


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.

G92-1099 Estimating Effective Rainfall, Joel E. Cahoon, C. Dean Yonts, Steven R. Melvin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

How irrigators can estimate effective rainfall, and use that estimate to schedule irrigations properly. Scheduling irrigation based on crop demand (see NebGuide G85-753 Irrigation Scheduling Using Crop Water Use Data, on the checkbook method) requires an estimate of effective precipitation or rainfall. Effective rainfall estimates are also important for planning cropping sequences in both dryland and irrigationd crop production. Effective rainfall is the amount of rainfall stored in the crop root zone. Rainfall that runs off the soil surface or passes through the root zone does not contribute to crop growth and yield. There are two steps to estimating effective ...
