Use Moisture Meters to Determine When Structures are Dried Out and Ready for Rebuilding

Nebraska Extension is pleased to have moisture meters available for homeowners to borrow from local Extension offices as they monitor structures for moisture levels prior to rebuilding.  The moisture level of structures cannot be determined by appearance or time spent drying. A calibrated moisture meter is recommended to measure the moisture content of flooded materials.

Webinar Series

The Agricultural Land Management Quarterly webinar series will offer management advice and insight for Nebraska landowners, agricultural producers and others with an interest in agricultural land.

Mobile iGrow Educational displays have been making the rounds to Hall County elementary schools!  Each interactive display includes a teaching guide, hands-on activities, and an iGrow activity worksheet, targeting elementary students.

The displays are like a “mini-field trip at the school” reported one teacher. Focused on Nebraska school standards in math, social studies, and STEM, the displays increase students’ knowledge of where our food comes from, careers, and how agriculture is important in our everyday lives.

In the blink of an eye, extreme weather events can wreak havoc on lawns and landscapes, often leaving homeowners and landscape managers at a loss for what to do. To help these people make decisions and take actions prior to and after extreme weather events, Nebraska Extension recently released “weather ready landscapes” infographics.

The final four infographics in a series of eight are now available: https://weather-ready.unl.edu/weather-ready-landscapes The two-page infographics cover the following weather topics: flood, hail, ice, and tornado and wind. Infographics released in early fall 2018 cover winter desiccation, frost, dormancy breaks, and drought.
