If you were not able to soil sample fields for nutrients last fall following harvest; it’s not too late to sample fields this spring, especially if you have some you are unsure of their nutrient status. It is important to know what your next crop needs and apply fertilizers accordingly.
I had the opportunity to participate in the On-farm Research Reporting sessions last month in Auburn and Nebraska City and which was also available virtually for particpants. There were a number of projects reported on at the meeting; in 2020 there were over 100 on-farm research projects conducted through the Nebraska Extension On-Farm Research Program.
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.

Until an in person Landlord-Tenant Cash Rent Workshop is scheduled in Nemaha County we would like to suggest you visit Nebraska Extension's Ag Economics Land Management News webpage.  It is full of very helpful articles and recorded webinars for land owners and tenants managing agricultural land.


Until we are able to schedule an in person Ag Estate Planning Workshop, we would like to suggest that you view the 12 part Farm Succession video series at:  https://agecon.unl.edu/video-farm-succession-workshop

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.
