1988 Crop Protection Clinic Schedule

The dates and locations for the 1988 Crop Protection Clinics have been set. As in the past we will continue the format of 15 minute presentations with time for questions. Entomologists, Plant Pathologists, and Weed Scientists will be presenting the latest information. More details on the Clinics will be available in our November Newsletter.

Robert Stougaard Joins Staff at Lincoln

Dr. Robert Stougaard has joined the Agronomy Department at Lincoln as an Assistant Professor. His responsibilities will be both Extension and Research with research emphasis on weed control in horticultural crops. Bob is a native of Wisconsin and recently completed his Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska. Welcome aboard, Bob!

It's Not Too Late

A relative hard freeze need not shut down weed control activities. A lot of our tough weeds thrive when temperatures are in the 40' sand 50' s in mid to late fall. Here are some weed control operations that can be done during the next four to six weeks, weather permitting.

What Is Your Weed Inventory?

Take advantage of your time in the combine to assess this years weed control program and inventory your fields for weed infestations. Weeds that have gone to seed will most likely be there next year to cause problems. Write down which weed species are present in each field and draw a map indicating where specific weed problems occur. This will be helpful in determining next years weed control program as well as crop rotation.
