In August, many of our flowers are starting to fade for the year. It also is one of our hotter months of the year and it makes it difficult to do much outdoors. However, there are some great plants that start to reach their stride in August and September.
Nebraska Extension in Nemaha County welcomes our new Water & Crops System Educator, Ritika Lamichhane. Along with Nemaha County, her accountability region includes Johnson, Pawnee & Richardson Counties.
Nebraska Extension publishes survey results on farm custom rates every two years and annually for cash rent rates and real estate values. Jim Jansen, Extension Educator for Agricultural Economics, leads the Nebraska Farm Real Estate Report effort, and Glennis McClure, Farm and Ranch Management Analyst Extension Educator, leads the Nebraska Farm Custom Rates Report effort.
Gardening is so rewarding and so much fun, why not extend it into the fall. Now is a great time to start planting a fall garden.
Emerald Ash Borer, EAB, was recently discovered in Nemaha County in Southeast Nebraska. Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that was first found in Nebraska in the summer of 2016 when it was found in Omaha and Greenwood Nebraska. Now that it has been found locally, there are different actions that residents of Nemaha and the surrounding areas in Richardson County can take if they have an ash tree in their yard.
The U.S. Drought Monitor map shows parts of the U.S. that are in drought, how intense it is, and short-term and long-term impacts. As the Water & Cropping Systems Extension Educator for Gage, Jefferson, and Saline counties, I contribute reports for this area directly to the weekly authors in Nebraska through our internal Nebraska drought discussion group email listserv or online meetings.
