G93-1169 Coalitions For Building Community Understanding (Revised April 1994), Georgia L. Stevens Jan 1993

G93-1169 Coalitions For Building Community Understanding (Revised April 1994), Georgia L. Stevens

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide identifies eight steps for coalitions involved in building community understanding and applies them to the issue of school-age child care.

The process of building community understanding is an important one, regardless of the area of concern. As more and more citizens recognize a particular problem, that problem moves from the private to the public domain and requires the involvement of a larger segment of the community. Though this NebGuide deals specifically with the example of school-age child care, the process of involving the whole community is relevant to any area of policy-making.

G93-1149 Stripe Smut Disease Of Turfgrass, John E. Watkins, Roch E. Gaussoin Jan 1993

G93-1149 Stripe Smut Disease Of Turfgrass, John E. Watkins, Roch E. Gaussoin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Ways to identify and treat smut fungi are given here.

Smut fungi infect various grasses, either cultivated or found naturally in the wild. In turfgrass, one of the most common smut diseases is stripe smut caused by Ustilago striiformis.

Stripe smut occurs most commonly on Kentucky bluegrass, occasionally on bentgrass and rarely on fine fescues and perennial ryegrass; it has not been reported to occur on zoysia. The widespread use of susceptible Kentucky bluegrass cultivars has contributed to the common occurrence of stripe smut.

Stripe smut should not be taken lightly by turfgrass managers. Infection causes a general decline, and ...


G93-1125 Lining A Jacket Or Coat, Rose Marie Tondl Jan 1993

G93-1125 Lining A Jacket Or Coat, Rose Marie Tondl

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The purpose of a lining is to add to the comfort of the wearer; preserve the shape of a garment or add body to it; and conceal construction details and raw edges of fabric, thus giving a finished appearance to the inside of the garment. A neatly applied lining usually adds to a garment quality.

The fabric and style of the garment may influence whether a lining should be used. Woven fabrics are more frequently lined (to conceal raw edges) than knit fabrics. If a woven fabric coat or jacket is not lined, give seam allowances and facings a special ...

The full-grown clover mite is slightly smaller than a pin head and has a ...

G93-1175 Sanitation For Fly And Disease Management At Confined Livestock Facilities, John B. Campbell, Duane Rice

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes flies found in confined livestock facilities, how they breed, and how they can be controlled.

The stable fly and house fly are the major insect pests at confined livestock units. The stable fly has a piercing-type mouthpart which is used to pierce the skin to obtain a blood meal. House flies do not bite because they have a sponging-type mouthpart with which they feed on semi-liquid material. The life cycles of the two species are similar, consisting of eggs, larvae (maggots), pupae, and the adult. During summer months the stable fly completes its life cycle in about ...
