G91-1020 Plumbing Systems Of Agricultural Sprayers, Robert D. Grisso, David L. Varner, Robert N. Klein Jan 1991

G91-1020 Plumbing Systems Of Agricultural Sprayers, Robert D. Grisso, David L. Varner, Robert N. Klein

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Properly adjusting and maintaining the plumbing systems of agricultural sprayers can improve the efficiency and uniformity of chemical applications. The plumbing systems of agricultural sprayers are usually considered foolproof. Sprayer problems may occur however, when plumbing and/or modifications are improperly done or maintenance is ignored. Retrofitting, addition of electrical control systems, and replacement of pumps or nozzles require knowledge of the plumbing system and how changes will affect sprayer performance. Routine maintenance of the plumbing systems is essential.


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 …


G91-1055 Using Moving Averages To Effectively Analyze Trends, Robin R. Riley, Lynn H. Lutgen Jan 1991

G91-1055 Using Moving Averages To Effectively Analyze Trends, Robin R. Riley, Lynn H. Lutgen

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This fifth of a nine NebGuide series is designed to show how trend lines can assist producers and others in analyzing the market's technical side.

What is the objective in using moving averages?

Technical analysts construct a moving average of price to provide a better market timing indicator than the traditional straight-line method. The idea is to smooth out daily price fluctuation to get a clear view of the market trend. The moving average is a method for averaging near-term prices in relation to long-term prices. This technique should not be confused with the oscillators described in NebGuide No. 8 …


G91-1054 How To Study Gaps In The Technical Side Of Marketing, Lynn H. Lutgen Jan 1991

G91-1054 How To Study Gaps In The Technical Side Of Marketing, Lynn H. Lutgen

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This is the fourth of nine NebGuides laying the foundation for producers who want to study the technical side of market analysis.

Anyone studying technicals or markets is continually looking for trends, ways to measure market movement, and support and resistance areas. Many market analysts say the market "wants to fill a gap." Producers need to understand what this statement means, starting with a definition of the term "gap."

A gap in the market is formed when the trading range (high, low) operates outside the previous day's trading range. This occurs in highly volatile markets, not in slow moving sideways …

G91-1023 Insects That Attack Seeds And Seedlings Of Field Crops, Stephen D. Danielson, Robert J. Wright, Gary L. Hein, Leroy Peters, James A. Kalisch Jan 1991

G91-1023 Insects That Attack Seeds And Seedlings Of Field Crops, Stephen D. Danielson, Robert J. Wright, Gary L. Hein, Leroy Peters, James A. Kalisch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses how to identify and control eight insects that feed on planted seeds and seedlings.

Planted seeds of field crops can attract several kinds of insects. In many cases, the insects do not cause enough damage to justify control procedures. However, under some conditions seed pests may be very destructive. Seed that is slow to germinate and establish is more likely to be damaged. Situations such as first-year crops following sod or pasture, ecofallow, or reduced tillage/heavy crop residue conditions have a good chance for seed/seedling damage. Consider grower experience and past pest problems when deciding about individual …

Nf91-29 Ringworm And Club Lamb Fungus, Doyle Wolverton, Ted Doane

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Sheep exhibitors, as you prepare for summer shows, examine how you prepare your sheep for the show ring. Washing and shearing removes the natural lanolin and suint that protects sheep from getting some diseases. Anyone who shows sheep this summer should be aware of ringworm and a ringworm-like disease that can be transmitted from infected sheep to humans. One ringworm type disease, caused by a fungus, is currently being called "club lamb" fungus.


Nf91-28 Psittacosis (Chlamydia Psittaci Infections) In Pet Birds, Eva Wallner-Pendleton Jan 1991

Nf91-28 Psittacosis (Chlamydia Psittaci Infections) In Pet Birds, Eva Wallner-Pendleton

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Companion birds continue to increase in popularity as pets in the United States. Birds most frequently kept belong to the family psittacidae, or the parrot family. Although domestic breeding of parrots is becoming more widespread, a large number of birds are still imported from outside the United States. By law, these birds must enter the country through quarantine stations. There they spend at least 30 days and are tested for disease and fed food containing tetracycline, an antibiotic. The antibiotic treatment is to hopefully eliminate infections with Chlamydia psittaci, the bacterium that causes psittacosis.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This is the sixth of nine NebGuides designed to aid producers in starting to use technical analysis in their marketing plan.

Among the most frustrating aspects of marketing are missed opportunities for good prices. These occur because producers becoming overly optimistic. This optimism stems from the belief that a bull market will keep going up.

Ultimately, the market does change direction -- it does so many times before the producer has priced his crop. This NebGuide examines where to draw additional support and resistance lines beyond the support and resistance trend lines explained in the second NebGuide in this series. …

Decisions regarding pest management should include information from recurring field visits that estimate pest populations, potential plant damage and crop growth. Regular visits to the field are necessary to monitor soil/water conditions by the use of soil probes, soil moisture blocks, tensiometers, or other methods to assure efficient application and use of irrigation water.


G91-1024 Two Crops In One Year: Relay Intercropping, Gary Lesoing, Russell Moomaw, Charles Francis Jan 1991

G91-1024 Two Crops In One Year: Relay Intercropping, Gary Lesoing, Russell Moomaw, Charles Francis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This publication covers crop variety selection, weed control, and other cultural practices for relay intercropping a crop like soybeans into growing winter wheat or oats.

Multiple cropping refers to growing two crops on the same field during the same year. One method of multiple cropping is doublecropping, which is the growing of a second crop after harvest of the first crop. In Nebraska, where opportunities for doublecropping are limited, relay intercropping is a possible alternative.

In relay intercropping, two crops are in the field at the same time during part of the season. A small grain is usually relay intercropped …

G91-1029 Preventing Fruiting In Woody Plants, Don Steinegger

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide covers what to use to prevent fruiting or remove fruit from ornamental landscape trees and shrubs.

The ideal shrub or tree for a home landscape is one that is aesthetically pleasing, architecturally suitable, and adapted to its site. Aesthetically, plants with season-long foliage and fall color are desirable. The landscape value of these plants increase if they also produce flowers and fruits.

Despite the increased value of a flowering plant, some people consider spent flowers and fruits undesirable litter, especially when they fall on driveways and sidewalks. Also, plants producing edible fruit and serving as landscape plants require …

You can reduce water consumption by 40-80 percent by following an appropriate sequence in designing and managing your site.


G91-1049 Controlling Internal Parasites In Swine, B.E. Straw Jan 1991

G91-1049 Controlling Internal Parasites In Swine, B.E. Straw

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This publication addresses the identification, prevention and control of internal parasites in swine and lists characteristics of principle dewormers.

Whether pigs are raised in confinement or on pasture, controlling internal parasites is essential to the overall herd health program. Recent studies by Tom Kennedy of A.E.F. Research, Inc, Waunakee, WI, have shown that worm infestation is prevalent on both a farm and individual pig basis. Of the farms examined, 91 percent raised pigs on concrete, wire or slotted floors, but more than 90 percent of all farms were infested with one or more kinds of worms.
