As spring approaches and winter wheat begins to green up, farmers still have the opportunity to stimulate spring tillering on late-planted fields or those fields with thin stands with early nitrogen. If not applied in the fall, two other key nutrients, chloride and sulfur, can be included at green up during the early spring fertilizer pass across the field. In southeast Nebraska, local observations and experience from past Extension educators and specialists suggest that sulfur and possibly chloride applications are warranted on non-irrigated no-till winter wheat after soybeans. The question is: Do you need to include chloride and sulfur?

This short book was written to support and reassure our children, under the age of 7, regarding the COVID-19. This book is an invitation for families to discuss the full range of emotions arising from the current situation. It is important to point out that this resource does not seek to be a source of scientific information, but rather a tool based on fantasy. My recommendation is to print this material so children can draw on it. Remember that emotions are processed through repetitive play and stories read multiple times. Share COVIBOOK and help ease kiddo's anxiety all over the world. The book was written by Manuela Molina.
