There has been damage to alfalfa fields from fall armyworms in southeast Nebraska. Reports of fields in Gage and Otoe Counties were reported last month, but more recently fields in Jefferson and Saline counties have reported damage. The states to the south of us, Kansas and Missouri have reported significant outbreaks of fall armyworms recently.
Join us Friday, September 24th for the Diversified Farm Tour. Please consider attending for the whole day or as your schedule allows for an outdoor gathering focused on Diversified Ag Tour flyeragricultural education and connection with area farms & farmers.

Nemaha County 4-H State Fair results are now available on line.  Congratulations Nemaha County 4-Hers on a job well done!

September 19th through September 25th will be Farm Safety Week.  It is important to acknowledge, celebrate, and uplift America’s farmers and ranchers who have encountered many challenges over the past few years, yet continue to work hard to provide the food, fiber, and fuel that we need. Fall harvest time can be one of the busiest and most dangerous seasons of the year for the agriculture industry. With fall harvest beginning, safety needs to be an important focus for farmers and others in our rural community.  

Earlier this summer we have received some excellent rains here in southeastern Nebraska, especially compared to many other parts of the state. The last 3-4 weeks have been relatively dry and also with some very hot temperatures.

So have you seen that purple topped grass growing in the ditches, in pastures, along fields and in waterways recently? This grass is called just what it looks like, “Purpletop”. Another name for this grass is greasegrass.
