Growth And Yield Of Snap Beans As Affected By Wind Protection And Microclimate Changes Due To Shelterbelts And Planting Dates, Laurie Hodges, Mohd Nazip Suratman, James R. Brandle, Kenneth G. Hubbard Aug 2004

Growth And Yield Of Snap Beans As Affected By Wind Protection And Microclimate Changes Due To Shelterbelts And Planting Dates, Laurie Hodges, Mohd Nazip Suratman, James R. Brandle, Kenneth G. Hubbard

Agronomy & Horticulture -- Faculty Publications

The effects of wind protection on growth and total and marketahle yields of snap bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) planted at 2-week intervals through the 1994 and 1995 growing seasons were examined. Research was conducted under nonirrigated conditions at the Shelterbelt Research Area, Univ, of Nebraska Agricultural Research and Development Center (ARDC) near Mead. 'Strike' (white-seeded) and 'Rushmore' (dark-seeded) were planted in locations sheltered from wind stress hy tree windbreaks (shelterbelts) and in locations exposed to normal winds using a randomized complete-block design with a split-split plot arrangement of treatments. Air temperature, soil temperature, humidity, wind speed, and wind direction were ...

Agenda: Best Management Practices And Adaptive Management In Oil And Gas Development, University Of Colorado Boulder. Natural Resources Law Center

Best Management Practices and Adaptive Management in Oil and Gas Development (May 12-13)

Agenda includes summaries of speakers' presentations

Workshop held May 12-13, 2004 at the University of Colorado School of Law and sponsored by the Natural Resources Law Center with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, BP America and Calpine Corporation

Government agencies, industry and others are beginning to apply the concepts of best management practices and adaptive management to oil and gas development. This free workshop will examine what is going on in the Rocky Mountain Region with these innovative management approaches. This timely workshop will be kicked off with a presentation on the Western Governors' Association Coalbed Methane ...

Manure Storage, Process Improvement For Animal Feeding Operations, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Manure Storage, Process Improvement For Animal Feeding Operations, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the need for manure storage facilities.


Types Of Manure Storage, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Types Of Manure Storage, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the characteristics of different types of manure storage facilities. Factors that might influence the selection of a particular type of manure storage facility are discussed. Manure storage facilities discussed include solid systems, slurry systems, and liquid (lagoon systems).


Manure Storage Selection, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Manure Storage Selection, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the factors that might influence the selection of a particular type of manure storage facility. Manure storage facilities covered include solid systems, slurry systems, and liquid (lagoon systems).


Nutrient Concentrations In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Nutrient Concentrations In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the nutrient loss and retention characteristics of different types of manure storage. The concentration of nutrients in manure storage facilities is important for planning land application activities. Nutrient concentration is usually the critical factor in determining the amount of manure to be spread per acre of land. Manure systems similar in type and management may have characteristically similar concentrations of manure nutrients.


Safety In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Safety In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

As livestock operations become larger and numbers of employees more numerous, safety becomes a critical issue in manure storage.


Animal Manure Removal Methods For Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Animal Manure Removal Methods For Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

A well-designed manure storage facility must also be well managed to prevent environmental concerns from developing. Probably the single most important requirement in operating and maintaining a manure storage facility is to ensure that the facility does not overflow or discharge.

Anna K. Butters-Johnson

The objective of this review was two-fold. First, a series of meta-analyses (analyses of treatment effects across studies) were performed on available data from scientific literature to determine whether sow behavior, performance, or physiology differed for sows in group pens or individual stalls. Second, research publications in areas of performance and health, physiology, and behavior of pregnant gilts and sows in studies that directly compared gestation sow housing systems were summarized. Common systems were stalls, tethers, and various types of group housing systems. Results of meta-analyses showed that the average levels of productivity, oral-nasal-facial behaviors (ONF), and blood cortisol were ...


Nf04-597 Biosecurity And The Poultry Flock, Dan Mcguire, Sheila Scheideler Jan 2004

Nf04-597 Biosecurity And The Poultry Flock, Dan Mcguire, Sheila Scheideler

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

What is Biosecurity? Biosecurity is a modern term created out of a need to protect, in our case poultry, from an intentional or unintentional threat from a biological agent. In our everyday management, biosecurity is an endless endeavor to keep viral disease agents and/or the spread of such disease agents at bay. We have learned from our own personal welfare that by keeping our environment clean, i.e., "cleanliness is next to godliness" and by reducing contact with infected people or animals, i.e., "being a good neighbor," we can reduce our chance of catching or spreading disease. This ...
