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

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.

G99-1380 Estimating Tourism's Economic Impact In Nebraska Counties, Brian J. Hill

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Developing tourism can enhance the economy. This NebGuide describes how to use lodging tax statistics to estimate the impact of tourism on a community.

Every community interested in developing tourism to enhance or diversify their economy wants to know how much good tourism can do for them. While tourism is not the answer to every community's economic challenges, it can provide economic benefits in many cases. These economic benefits must then be compared to the social, cultural and environmental changes that tourism might bring in order to judge its acceptability in community economic development efforts.

Politicians, planners and citizens ...

G96-1362 Soil Temperatures And Spring Planting Dates, Steven J. Meyer, Allen L. Dutcher Jan 1998

G96-1362 Soil Temperatures And Spring Planting Dates, Steven J. Meyer, Allen L. Dutcher

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Dates on which soil temperatures reach a threshold value are presented as a spring planting guide for agronomic and horticultural producers.

For a seed to germinate it must have good contact with the soil and be placed in a favorable soil environment. A good soil environment is one that has suitable soil temperature, adequate soil moisture, good aeration, and for certain seeds, light. Conditions necessary for germination depend on the species and variety of seed being planted. Alone, none of these factors guarantee germination; rather it is the interaction of these factors that affects seed germination.

In Nebraska, soil moisture ...

Ec96-1770 Windbreaks For Snow Management, James R. Brandle, H. Doak Nickerson Jan 1996

Ec96-1770 Windbreaks For Snow Management, James R. Brandle, H. Doak Nickerson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

In areas of high winds and blowing snow, windbreaks can reduce the amount of effort spent on snow management. They can be designed to spread snow across a large area or to confine it to a relatively small storage area. The design of your windbreak will depend on your objective. Field windbreaks designed to distribute snow evenly across a field should be tall and porous. In contrast, windbreaks designed to capture snow and control drifting should have multiple rows with high density. There is no one set design, number of rows, or width of planting that is ideal for every ...

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Dairy Economics in Nebraska

The dairy sector is undergoing major structural changes and economic adjustments. The industry is also becoming more market oriented as government price supports decline. Increased competitiveness has kept milk prices relatively stable, but increased grain and other input costs in 1995-96 have put increased pressure on profit margins which were already narrow.

This publication is a compilation of data related to the current economics of dairy farming. The objective is to provide data to help dairy farmers make adjustments in their operations, such as expanding their herds, and to provide basic data for operators setting up ...
