Two weedy vines are receiving a lot of attention this year. Both can be found in our shrubs, trees and fences. If left un-managed, they can smother out shrubs and trees by preventing the tree leaves from photosynthesizing and eventually killing them, especially evergreen trees.

     The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) is hosting a Season Extension Seminar and hops production and harvesting demonstration Aug. 17, 2018 at the University of Nebraska Panhandle Research and Extension Center, 4502 Avenue I, in Scottsbluff. 

      The seminar, which will last from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., is targeted to specialty crop growers, who will have the opportunity to connect with a retailer interested in sourcing local produce, learn about affordable financing options, and watch a cooking demonstration using locally grown produce.
