Local Interest

With most of southeast Nebraska receiving much needed rain the past few days and rain predicted for this week, it will be an excellent time to scout crop fields for potential problems. Many areas received torrential rains with the possibility of having flooded crops or even some crops washed out, with erosion in fields.

Each spring there is potential for challenges in getting herbicides applied in a timely matter for good weed control.   With good soil moisture, weeds will take off if they have not been treated yet.

With planting season moving forward much, much faster than 2019, it is important to keep an eye on planted fields for potential pests and other issues that may arise.
