Rural Flies In The Urban Environment?, Gustave D. Thomas, Steven R. Skoda Feb 1993

Rural Flies In The Urban Environment?, Gustave D. Thomas, Steven R. Skoda

Historical Research Bulletins of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

Because metropolitan areas in the United States have been expanding at a dramatic rate, there has been direct competition between rural and urban interests for land. Also, market pressures often make it most profitable for meat producers to locate as close to urban centers as possible. A resultant growing interface between rural and urban centers, coupled with inadequate understanding of the people between the two centers, provides a potential for problems to develop. This book generally summarizes one area of contention - flies: few people tolerate flies in any setting anymore.


The Economics Of Classifying Farmland Between Alternative Uses, Roger H. Willsie Mar 1963

The Economics Of Classifying Farmland Between Alternative Uses, Roger H. Willsie

Historical Research Bulletins of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

At present some farm programs are aimed at reducing the acreage of land used for crop production. These programs have the objectives of reducing quantities of certain farm commodities and conserving land resources. By shifting land from the production of certain farm commodities to other commodities or to grass, total farm income may be raised and the costs of farm price support and storage programs reduced. In programs to shift land use a classification of land based on economic criteria would be useful. The primary concern of this study was with methods for identifying the economic margin between land uses ...

Economic Analysis Of Forage Production And Utilization In Dakota And Dixon Counties, Nebraska, Howard W. Ottoson

Historical Research Bulletins of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

Soil erosion remains a serious problem on many Nebraska farms despite programs of financial assistance, technical aid, and education by several national and state agencies. One reason that soil conserving adjustments in land use have not been made by farmers is that considerable uncertainty surrounds the economics of soil erosion control on the farm level. This study is an attempt to increase knowledge and reduce some of the uncertainty with regard to the economics of erosion control in a specific area.
