With most of southeast Nebraska receiving much needed rain the past few days and rain predicted for this week, it will be an excellent time to scout crop fields for potential problems. Many areas received torrential rains with the possibility of having flooded crops or even some crops washed out, with erosion in fields.

Each spring there is potential for challenges in getting herbicides applied in a timely matter for good weed control.   With good soil moisture, weeds will take off if they have not been treated yet.

Spring is here and that means it is time to think about spring cleaning. One part of the home we often overlook, when it comes to cleaning, is the indoor air we breathe. When we think about indoor air quality we should think about radon. According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, over 70­% of homes tested in Richardson County have levels of radon in the indoor air that exceed EPA’s action level.
