G00-1419 Community Supported Agriculture, Paul Swanson Jan 2000

G00-1419 Community Supported Agriculture, Paul Swanson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide explains what community supported agriculture is, how it works and what producers will need to do to participate.

Most Nebraskans have not heard of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) but the concept is about three decades old in Japan and Europe and about 10-15 years old on the east coast of the United States.

G00-1778 Field Windbreaks, James R. Brandle, Laurie Hodges Jan 2000

G00-1778 Field Windbreaks, James R. Brandle, Laurie Hodges

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

gricultural producers face many challenges as they try to balance efficient production systems with increasing environmental demands. For these systems to be successful, they must optimize the balance between inputs and final production. Field windbreaks are one way to increase yields while at the same time reducing inputs and improving both environmental quality and production efficiency. Windbreaks reduce wind speed and alter the microclimate in sheltered areas. Field windbreaks reduce wind erosion and the damage to crops caused by wind-blown soil. They improve water use efficiency, reduce risks associated with drought, and manage blowing snow.

Field windbreaks provide positive economic ...


Ec00-1759 Nebraska Register Of Champion Trees 2000, Scott J. Josiah Jan 2000

Ec00-1759 Nebraska Register Of Champion Trees 2000, Scott J. Josiah

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Nebraska is famous for its sports champions, but how about Champion Trees? While Nebraska is considered a "prairie state," trees have always played a prominent role in the quality of life of Nebraskans. Native trees were used to build the first pioneer homes. They also were used to heat them and protect them from wind.

The Nebraska Champion Tree program identifies and recognizes the largest living specimen of all native and the most common introduced tree species in Nebraska.


G00-1417 Site Preparation: Key To Successful Conservation Tree Planting In Western Nebraska (Revised February 2002), Doak Nickerson Jan 2000

G00-1417 Site Preparation: Key To Successful Conservation Tree Planting In Western Nebraska (Revised February 2002), Doak Nickerson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Establishing a conservation tree planting can be a challenge in semiarid regions like western Nebraska, where annual precipitation of 20 inches or less is the norm. Tree planting failure commonly occurs as a result of poor site preparation coupled with inadequate weed and grass control the first three to five years after planting. Effective site preparation begins the year before planting. The results help young trees survive and grow in several ways. This NebGuide explains when and how to do site preparation for conservation tree planting in Western Nebraska.


Nf00-410 Fungicide Options For Managing Foliar Diseases On Wheat, John E. Watkins Jan 2000

Nf00-410 Fungicide Options For Managing Foliar Diseases On Wheat, John E. Watkins

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Stripe and leaf rusts, tan spot and Septoria leaf blotch comprise the four primary foliar diseases of wheat in the central Great Plains. In eastern and south central Nebraska leaf rust and Septoria leaf blotch are common, and in the wheat-fallow-wheat regions of western Nebraska, tan spot is an important foliar disease. Stripe rust occurs statewide.

This NebFact discusses the options of treatment criteria, profitability of treatment, treatment products and timing for managing foliar diseases of wheat.

This circular is a progress report of variety trials conducted by personnel of the Agronomy Department and the South Central, West Central and Panhandle Research and Extension Centers and their associated agricultural laboraties. The 2000 estimated winter wheat yield for Nebraska was a 36 bushels per acre from 1,750,000 harvested acres. The total production of winter wheat for the state was 63,000,000 bushels. This circular reports data from winter wheat trials conducted throughout Nebraska. Entries included varieties or hybrids and promising experimental strains from Nebraska and surrounding states and private breeders. This was the ninetenth year ...
