Nebraska Extension in Gage County

Local Interest

The 2017 No-Till on the Plains conference is January 24-25 in Salina, Kansas. The conference is in its 21st year and once again will have an excellent star lineup of speakers. To make it better, there is a $50 Sustainable Agriculture grant for all that signup to travel together through the Extension Office in Saline County. You will travel with Nebraska Extension Educators Gary Lesoing, Paul Hay and Randy Pryor to the two-day conference in Salina and the $50 is redeemable upon return with only minor paperwork. 

This workshop will use the Field to Market tool which uses farming practices and other production data to produce graphs and tables which allows for a comparison of one field to national, state, and local averages for the metrics of Yield, Irrigation efficiency, erosion, energy use, and green house gas emissions.
