Nebraska Extension is partnering with a number of state agencies and organizations to help people in our communities on the road to recovery. Those affected by the flood might be unsure where to begin the cleanup process. Safety is a priority whether it be entering a damaged structure, food safety concerns, drinking water contamination or cleaning up. Resources for families and individuals, home and business owners, and the agriculture sector are available at the latest flood resources from Nebraska Extension at https://flood.unl.edu.

Emerald Ash Borer RecommendationsBottom line for homeowners at this time – Wait to treat until Emerald Ash Borer has been found within 15 miles of a tree!
Now is the time to be deciding whether you will treat your ash tree or not. If there is room near an ash tree, consider planting another tree for down the road.

Rental rates for irrigated, dryland and pasture acres are a common question received by our office. There are two resources that can be used to start a conversation between land owner and tenant: 1) UNL Department of Ag Economics Survey published every March that covers land values as well as cash rents and 2) USDA NASS Cash Rent Survey published every other year.
