G91-1046 Conservation Tillage And Planting Systems, Paul J. Jasa, David P. Shelton, Alice J. Jones, Elbert C. Dickey Jan 1991

G91-1046 Conservation Tillage And Planting Systems, Paul J. Jasa, David P. Shelton, Alice J. Jones, Elbert C. Dickey

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Tillage system descriptions and comparisons are included here. Moldboard plowing, followed by such secondary tillage operations as disking and harrowing, was once the most common, or traditional, tillage system before planting. Soil erosion potential from rainfall on sloping lands was great and requirements for labor and fuel were high compared to other tillage and planting systems. One of the most commonly used tillage systems in Nebraska today is two diskings followed by field cultivation. Unfortunately, the potential for soil erosion may be great because the number of tillage operations involved may not leave adequate residue cover for erosion control. Today …


G91-1010 Managing Corn And Sorghum Residues During The Ecofarming Fallow Period, Robert N. Klein, Gail A. Wicks Jan 1991

G91-1010 Managing Corn And Sorghum Residues During The Ecofarming Fallow Period, Robert N. Klein, Gail A. Wicks

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide explains how to maintain an appropriate residue cover with ecofarming in the fallow period before winter wheat to reduce soil erosion and conserve soil moisture. Ecofarming is a system of controlling weeds and managing crop residues throughout a crop rotation with minimum use of tillage. This will reduce soil erosion and production costs while increasing weed control, water infiltration, moisture conservation and crop yields. In the winter wheat-ecofallow corn or grain sorghum-fallow rotation, corn or grain sorghum is no-till planted into winter wheat stubble in May. During the previous summer or fall the winter wheat stubble was treated …


G91-1019 Set Up Of Tillage, Planting And Directed Spray Equipment, Elbert C. Dickey, Robert Grisso, Alex Martin Jan 1991

G91-1019 Set Up Of Tillage, Planting And Directed Spray Equipment, Elbert C. Dickey, Robert Grisso, Alex Martin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses how to set up and operate liquid herbicide application equipment on tillage, planting and directed spray equipment.

Some herbicides require incorporation to obtain consistent weed control. Maintaining residue cover to reduce soil loss on erodible soils makes it necessary to incorporate herbicide while minimizing tillage. This need, combined with many row crop producers' preference for band application to reduce herbicide costs, creates some application challenges.

G91-1000 Guidelines For Soil Sampling, Richard B. Ferguson, K.D. Frank, Gary W. Hergert, Edwin J. Penas, Richard A. Wiese Jan 1991

G91-1000 Guidelines For Soil Sampling, Richard B. Ferguson, K.D. Frank, Gary W. Hergert, Edwin J. Penas, Richard A. Wiese

Soil test values are no better than the soil samples you collect. Proper soil sampling procedures must be followed to obtain meaningful test results for fertilizer decisions.

The best guideline for determining fertilizer needs is a reliable analysis of a soil sample that is representative of the field. Proper procedures must be followed to collect representative soil samples.
