Local Interest

 In recent years there has been increased interest in the use of cover crops in conventional cropping systems. The USDA NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service) has promoted cover crops and provided cost-share programs for farmers to encourage their use to help improve soil health and reduce erosion and degradation of soils. Nebraska Extension, with its On-Farm Research Network and NRCS have partnered together on several field scale on-farm research projects with cover crops across Nebraska.

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.  

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.

The widespread flooding and winter weather across our great state has been at the top of all of our minds, including those of 4-H youth, volunteers, staff, and alumni across Nebraska and the country. Thanks to all of you for what you’re doing.

There will be a long road to recovery, and many 4-H’ers and our supporters will want to contribute.

As you assist young people with considering what can be done to support recovery efforts, please share the following:
