G1507 Summer Patch And Necrotic Ring Spot, John E. Watkins Jan 2003

G1507 Summer Patch And Necrotic Ring Spot, John E. Watkins

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes the causes, predisposing conditions, and symptoms of summer patch and necrotic ring spot, and provides recommendations for their control.

Introduction

Two of the most destructive turfgrass patch diseases are summer patch and necrotic ring spot, both of which are present in Nebraska. The symptoms of necrotic ring spot and summer patch are essentially identical, making it difficult to distinguish the two apart in an affected turf. If the symptoms begin in May, necrotic ring spot is probably the cause; if they begin in July and August, then summer patch is suspect. In Nebraska summer patch is probably ...

Ec03-153 Selecting Alfalfa Varieties For Nebraska, Bruce Anderson, Michael Trammell, Charles A. Shapiro, David D. Baltensperger

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The most important variety decision on many farms and ranches is the selection of alfalfa. The choice of alfalfa variety affects production for three to ten or more years, whereas varieties of annual crops can be changed annually. Yield potential, pest resistance, and seed price should be considered when selecting alfalfa varieties in Nebraska.

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.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

On rare occasions, high population of early season range grasshoppers coincide with slow growth of spring grass, causing economic loss. Most early season range grasshoppers overwinter in the nymphal stage. These grasshoppers survive by hiding under debris and organic matter.

G03-1523 Low Toxic Cockroach Control, Barbara P. Ogg, Clyde L. Ogg Jan 2003

G03-1523 Low Toxic Cockroach Control, Barbara P. Ogg, Clyde L. Ogg

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes how to identify common cockroach species, what they need to survive, and effective, low-toxic alternatives to traditional chemical control options.

Some people see a cockroach and immediately grab a can of bug spray, but a quick spray from an aerosol can won't provide long-term control. Ingredients in most aerosol and "bomb" treatments repel cockroaches. Using these products can cause the cockroaches to hide deeper inside walls and be more difficult to control later. To make the most of your efforts to control cockroaches, use a multiple tactic approach. First, you need to understand a little about ...
