Ec91-1764 Windbreak Establishment, James R. Brandle, Patricia Boehner, Sherman Finch Jan 1991

Ec91-1764 Windbreak Establishment, James R. Brandle, Patricia Boehner, Sherman Finch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

successful windbreak planting depends on proper establishment and care during the first few years after planting. Time spent in site preparation, weed control, and replanting is repaid many times during the lifetime of the windbreak. Take no shortcuts in the planning and establishment of your windbreak.

Windbreaks are investments in the future value of your property. Each windbreak system is unique and your windbreak should be designed for your site and objectives. Your local conservation office can provide help in designing and installing your windbreak. These organizations can also help with recommendations on where to buy planting stock and how …


G91-1045 Turfgrass Weed Prevention And Management (Revised December 1994), Roch E. Gaussoin, Alex Martin Jan 1991

G91-1045 Turfgrass Weed Prevention And Management (Revised December 1994), Roch E. Gaussoin, Alex Martin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses control strategies and recommendations for weed control in turf.

Weeds are a major problem in lawns and normally are the most visible of turfgrass pests. Weeds affect the function, health and appearance of the turf as they compete with desirable turfgrass plants for space, light, water and nutrients.


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 …


G91-1025 Two Crops In One Year: Doublecropping, Russell Moomaw, Gary Lesoing, Charles Francis Jan 1991

G91-1025 Two Crops In One Year: Doublecropping, Russell Moomaw, Gary Lesoing, Charles Francis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Choice of crops, weed control, and other cultural practices for successful doublecropping are discussed here.

Multiple cropping refers to growing two crops on the same field during the same year. One method of multiple cropping is doublecropping, which is when one crop is grown after the first crop is harvested. Prime USA regions for doublecropping are the eastern cornbelt, and southeastern and south central states where relatively long growing seasons and abundant rainfall occur. By contrast, shorter growing seasons and less frequent rainfall limit the potential for doublecropping in Nebraska.

Irrigation is essential for successful doublecropping in Nebraska. Without irrigation, …


Ec91-136 Managing Deficient Soybean Stands, Gary E. Pepper, David B. Willmot Jan 1991

Ec91-136 Managing Deficient Soybean Stands, Gary E. Pepper, David B. Willmot

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Soybean producers whose crops suffer poor stand emergencemay wonder whether or not replanting presents a viable economic alternative. Sometimes growers elect to replant deficient stands, but doing so can add considerable expense to their operations through the costs for seed, tillage operations, and perhaps even herbicides. The grower's economic risk is compounded by the possible loss in potential yield due to late seeding, which eventually leads to a reduction in net profit. Making the decision to either replant or stick with a somewhat deficient field is difficult.

The information in this circular is intended to help growers decide which course …


G91-1009 Getting Started In Ecofarming: Growing The Winter Wheat Crop, Gail A. Wicks, Robert N. Klein, Drew J. Lyon Jan 1991

G91-1009 Getting Started In Ecofarming: Growing The Winter Wheat Crop, Gail A. Wicks, Robert N. Klein, Drew J. Lyon

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Cultural practices can improve the weed competitiveness of winter wheat in an ecofallow program, thus increasing the effectiveness of herbicides. Ecofarming is a popular conservation tillage practice used in Nebraska areas where winter wheat is produced. It requires a high degree of management, but the rewards through higher crop yields and erosion protection are worth the effort. In Nebraska the winter wheat-fallow rotation is the common rotation used in areas of less than 17 inches of rainfall, while in areas that receive 17 to 22 inches the winter wheat-corn or sorghum fallow rotation is most common. In 1988, 41 percent …
