In traveling around southeast Nebraska I am seeing a number of trees in the area showing signs of iron In traveling around southeast Nebraska I am seeing a number of trees in the area showing signs of iron chlorosis. This is the condition when the leaves of trees are more yellow than normal. In the environmental conditions southeast Nebraska has experienced in recent years, trees have been under a great deal of stress.

While we have had an ongoing battle with bagworms for several years and have reduced their numbers significantly in southeast Nebraska, there are still bagworm infestations in some areas. In 2019, we had one of the worse years for bagworm infestations in southeast Nebraska in recent years. In southeast Nebraska, the larvae emerged over several weeks during the summer, but usually beginning around Memorial Day.

In previous articles I have mentioned the importance of weed control for several different species here in southeast Nebraska. One weed I didn’t mention was a noxious weed in Nebraska, “ Leafy Spurge”. This has been a longtime noxious weed in Nebraska, but we generally have a problem with it in more of the range or pasture land areas of Nebraska. It isn’t an issue in cropland here in southeast Nebraska. Unfortunately somehow it seems to show up here in pastures or along roadsides.
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.

Until an in person Landlord-Tenant Cash Rent Workshop is scheduled in Nemaha County we would like to suggest you visit Nebraska Extension's Ag Economics Land Management News webpage.  It is full of very helpful articles and recorded webinars for land owners and tenants managing agricultural land.


Until we are able to schedule an in person Ag Estate Planning Workshop, we would like to suggest that you view the 12 part Farm Succession video series at:  https://agecon.unl.edu/video-farm-succession-workshop
