You know the saying; the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Even though apple and other fall fruit harvest is nearing its end, that doesn’t mean that the work is over.  Fall sanitation is just one key part of fruit management.  A little extra work now could ensure a successful growing season next year.

Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed again in the state of Nebraska.  Find out what that means for your beloved ash trees, what you should be doing now, and what you can hold off for a little while longer.

The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) confirmed the first finding in the state of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in a tree located in Omaha in 2016.  Nebraska will be the 27th state to confirm the presence of the pest since 2002.  More recently, it has been confirmed in Lincoln and Fremont.

Fungus can be both a good and a bad thing.  Mushrooms on pizza are an example of good fungus. Fungus in lawns, on the other hand, are nearer the other end of the spectrum.  If your turf is looking a little thin and brown in spots; you are not alone.  Fungus and hot temperatures have wreaked havoc on lawns this year, but there is still time to make your lawn look full and lush for this fall.
