For all affected by the recent historic flooding in Nebraska, please know that our thoughts are with you. This webpage contains many resources that might help you or someone you know through this difficult time.
The Nemaha County Fair will be July 11-14, 2019. See the schedule of activities.

The weather we have experienced this past year has caused significant challenges for crop and livestock producers across Nebraska, with southeast Nebraska being impacted a great deal as well.  There will be several thousand acres that will not planted in 2019, with several farmers taking the Prevented Planting option.  For information on different cover crops that can be used for Prevented Planted fields, you can access information at: https://cropwatch.unl.edu/cover-crops or contact me at the Nemaha County Extension office.  With saturated soils and cloudy and cool conditions, many corn fields looked very anemic (yellow).

Sericea lespedeza has been a noxious weed for several years in the southeast corner of Nebraska and recently has become is a noxious weed for the whole state of Nebraska.  Sericea lespedeza is a prolific seed producer and birds can spread the seed.  This weed has made a foothold in Nebraska, which contributed to it being named a noxious weed statewide.  If we can keep it under control and from spreading further, maybe it won’t be such a huge problem here in Nebraska.

Spring is here and that means it is time to think about spring cleaning. One part of the home we often overlook, when it comes to cleaning, is the indoor air we breathe. When we think about indoor air quality we should think about radon. According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, over 75% of homes tested in Nemaha county have levels of radon in the indoor air that exceed EPA’s action level.
