G92-1080 Farmstead Safety Evaluation Guide, Gerald R. Bodman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Safe working conditions for personnel and safe, healthful living conditions for animals are critical requirements in the design of all farmsteads.

All farmsteads periodically should be evaluated for potential hazards and conditions that could lead to injury, death, or premature building failure or loss. Some hazards develop with time and are easily overlooked. Others are the result of poor planning or just being "too busy." To assess the safety of your farmstead and buildings, answer the following questions. Any question that cannot be answered with a firm "yes" indicates a need for corrective action.

G92-1109 Musk Thistle, Robert Wilson, Fred Roeth, Alex Martin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The history, identification and chemical, mechanical and cultural control of musk thistle are discussed. Musk thistle is a major problem for many Midwestern landowners. It reduces forage yields by robbing moisture and plant food from palatable grasses. Livestock refuse to enter heavily infested areas and will not graze close to the spiny plants. Since its emergence as a serious weed problem in the late 1940s, musk thistle has invaded thousands of acres of Nebraska pastureland and even occurs in some cultivated fields. It has moved from the Kansas border to the South Dakota border and as far west as Colorado ...

G92-1099 Estimating Effective Rainfall, Joel E. Cahoon, C. Dean Yonts, Steven R. Melvin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

How irrigators can estimate effective rainfall, and use that estimate to schedule irrigations properly. Scheduling irrigation based on crop demand (see NebGuide G85-753 Irrigation Scheduling Using Crop Water Use Data, on the checkbook method) requires an estimate of effective precipitation or rainfall. Effective rainfall estimates are also important for planning cropping sequences in both dryland and irrigationd crop production. Effective rainfall is the amount of rainfall stored in the crop root zone. Rainfall that runs off the soil surface or passes through the root zone does not contribute to crop growth and yield. There are two steps to estimating effective ...
