Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the use of vegetables as ornamental plants.

Many vegetables have ornamental, as well as food value. In fact, when tomatoes were first introduced to Europe, they were believed to be poisonous and were used only as ornamentals. Using vegetables as ornamentals is not just for those without space for a traditional vegetable garden. Incorporating vegetables into the landscape and using them as decorative container plants for porches and patios can make vegetable gardening more fun.

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 ...

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 ...


G94-1200 Anthracnose Diseases Of Shade Trees (Revised July 1997), Laurie J. Stepanek, Mark O. Harrell, David S. Wysong Jan 1994

G94-1200 Anthracnose Diseases Of Shade Trees (Revised July 1997), Laurie J. Stepanek, Mark O. Harrell, David S. Wysong

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes anthracnose diseases in sycamore, ash, oak, maple and walnut trees and offers suggestions for control.

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.

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.


Nf94-204 Computing The Dollar Value Of Concentrates And Byproduct Feeds For Dairy Cattle, Rick Grant Jan 1994

Nf94-204 Computing The Dollar Value Of Concentrates And Byproduct Feeds For Dairy Cattle, Rick Grant

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Feed costs represent 50 to 60 percent of variable milk production costs. Consequently, feed costs play a major role in determining the profitability of a dairy enterprise. Specifically, a producer should focus on "income above feed costs" to assess total feeding system profitability.
