Local Interest

This year Nebraska Extension in Nemaha County will be in its sixth year in southeast Nebraska with a pheromone trapping network to monitor black cutworm, variegated cutworm and true armyworm moths in southeast Nebraska. This is a local network of traps in southeast Nebraska during the 2021 planting season.
With warm weather scheduled to arrive soon and fields drying out, farmers will be getting full swing into spring field work; especially fertilizer and pesticide application and planting corn and soybeans. It is important for safety to be an important focus for farmers and others in our rural communities during this busy time of the year. With farmers working to complete field operations so crops can be planted in a timely manner, risk of farm accidents can increase.
Are you ready for a tornado? Do you know what to do if a tornado is headed your way? With severe weather beginning, it's time to be prepared for tornadoes. What are some things we should do to be prepared for a possible tornado?
With the weather warming up, you may want to consider getting your fields sampled for soybean cyst nematode (SCN) this spring if you have never sampled them or if it has been a while; especially if yields maybe lower than expected or if you have areas in fields that have spots that yielded poorly.
The winter of 2021 was much more challenging than 2020, with record snowfalls and cold temperatures, especially in February. Spring is officially here, temperatures are warming up and weeds are beginning to grow.
This training will allow individuals to become certified or re-certified as Private Pesticide Applicators. In person trainings in Southeast Nebraska are complete but Training by Zoom and Online is still available.
