Nebraska Extension in the Northern Panhandle

Local Interest

When: Tuesday June 27, 2023 (8:30 AM-12:30 PM)
Where: Meet at Dawes County Fairgrounds (E Gordon Ave, Chadron, NE). We will begin at 8:30 AM with a short 30 minute overview presenta-tion followed by a field tour of several local ranch cheatgrass treatments. Snacks and drinks will be provided, and carpooling will be available. We will tour sites between Chadron and Crawford on Highway 20, and then conclude the tour at a site North of Hemingford off of Dunlap Rd.

Black grass bugs are likely to blame. Black grass bugs are native to western Nebraska and feed primarily on introduced wheatgrasses, although they can feed on other grasses and broadleaf plants. Crested wheatgrass is exceptionally susceptible, especially monocultures that provide the opportunity for substantial population growth.
