   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?

Nebraska Extension’s Farm and Ranch Management team has scheduled a series of landlord-tenant cash rent workshops across the state during the fall and winter months. The series, geared toward current and future landlords and tenants, will cover current trends in cash rental rates and land values, lease provisions, crop and grazing land considerations and current university crop budget information.

NOTE: Due to current directed health measures, Dec. 10th will be online only!

The Farmers & Ranchers College was formed in January 2000 with the purpose of providing high quality, dynamic, up to date educational workshops for area agricultural producers in south central Nebraska through a collaborative effort between business, industry and higher education leaders. Furthermore, the Farmers & Ranchers College will provide the tools necessary so that agricultural producers will be able to respond positively to these changes using a profitable decision-making process.

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.
