Fall is an excellent time to soil sample fields for nutrients following harvest. If you have used cover crops for several years and a field is in cover crops now or you plan to drill cover crops this fall, it would be better to soil test in the spring and conduct a soil health test on that field.  You may be able to save money on your fertilizer bill. Last year there were a number of fields in southeast Nebraska that showed signs of nitrogen deficiencies, with potential for other nutrient deficiencies or imbalances. With all the rain in 2019, some nitrogen was lost either from leaching through the soil profile, runoff from the soil surface or into the air.

With harvest in full swing here in southeast Nebraska, there is an opportunity to check your fields this fall and provide weed control in your fields if needed. By identifying the weed, extent of any infestations and locations of weed problems, you will have a better strategy for managing these weeds in the future, maybe even this fall.  Marestail or maybe more specifically, glyphosate resistant marestail has become a major problem in Nebraska.  Control has been challenging in recent years.
