Local Interest

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.

Enjoy this virtual Diversified Ag Tour from 2018.  The tour included stops at Robinette Farms, Martell NE; Rock Creek Aquaculture near Diller, NE; Lazy Horse Brewing & Winery near Ohiowa, NE; Slezak Ag & Natural Resources near Milligan, NE; Ralph Tate's Grass Farm near Fairbuy, NE; and finally a stop at Broken Arrow Farm near Filley, NE. 

Take a minute or two and listen to interviews with local producers in Southeast Nebraska who use cover crops. They explain how they are using them and benefits they are seeing from using them.

The last few years there has been a major focus on cover crops here in southeast Nebraska as well as other parts of Nebraska.  Cover crops have been used for a number of years particularly in organic cropping systems.  They have been a source of nitrogen, organic matter and other nutrients when incorporated as green manures in these systems.  Cover crops have also been planted as forage crops for livestock for grazing or hay for many years.  In recent years there has been increased interest in the use of cover crops in conventional cropping systems.

Nebraska Extension, NRCS and the cover crop industry in Nebraska have worked to develop a cover crop selector tool specifically just for Nebraska. A team of Nebraska Extension Specialists, Extension Educators, NRCS staff and cover crop industry consultants spent a year developing this cover crop selector tool. The tool was completed, but issues in completing the required programming for the tool delayed release of the tool until now.
