Extension News By Terry Hejny, Nuckolls County Extension Education Preventing crabgrass To prevent crabgrass, many people apply a pre-emergent herbicide to the lawn in spring. Crabgrass is an annual weed, which means it dies from frost in the fall and must come back from seed each spring. It is also a warm-season species and theretbre requires soil tem- peratures of 60 to 65 degrees F before the seeds can germinate and grow. When using pre-emergent herbi- cides, the tinting of the application is very important. Sunlight and micro- bial action in the soil help break the herbicide down into harmless prod- ucts. For the most part, the herbicide remains effective for approximately six to eight weeks. Temperature is the determining fac- tor regarding herbicide breakdown. On the other hand, these herbicides act only on seedlings iust after they germi- nate--they will not kill an established plant. Once the crabgrass has become established, pre-emergent herbicide will not be effective. It is therefore critical that the herbi- cide be applied prior to the germina- tion of the crabgrass seed. On the other hand, to catch as many of the germinat- ing seeds as possible, the application should be delayed until just prior to germination time. Soil temperatures in southern Ne- braska usually don't reach the mid 60s until the last week of April or early May. In Hebron Thursday, April 11, the soil temperature reading at 8 a.m. was 42 degrees F, so there is a ways to go before it reaches 60-65 degrees.) The exception is in protected areas that receive sunlight reflected from the south or west sides of buildings or along stretches of pavement, such as streets or driveways, that absorb heat and transfer it to the surrounding soil. The ideal time to apply preventa- tive treatments is just prior to this time. I plan to apply crabgrass herbicide to my lawn when the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees. Or better yet, you can do what I do and split the applica- tion. Apply the chemical in the areas described above about April 20--maybe a bit later this year because of the abnormally cool spring weather. Then wait 10 days to two weeks before ap- plying the rest of the herbicide. If you would like more information about crabgrass control or about con- trolling other lawn weeds, stop at the local University of Nebraska Coopera- tive Extension office and ask for the NebGuide G91-1045, "Lawn Weed Prevention and Management." Ag ed students work on erosion control project Eighteen Superior FFA members volunteered a morning in April to as- sist Lee Hansen in controlling an ero- sion problem. The agriculture educa- tion students helped plant bareroot cottonwoods and ash trees along the Republican River to control river bank erosion. The group laid down black weed barrier and then transplanted approximately 200 trees. Another project for the group was to cut willow saplings from sandbars for bank plantings. The members waded across the fiver with the cut- tings and then cut them into 18 inch lengths. The willow whips were then placed along the water's edge six inches deep. About 300 whips were planted. The next natural resources activity is an arbor Day Observance the end of April. The FFA will plant bareroot threes secured from the Lower Repub- lican NRD. Bohling serves as farm director Former Byron area farmer and ra- dio broadcaster Marlin Bohling left Republic County, early this year to start a new career on the east coast. Marlin had served as the midday farm broadcaster for KFRM radio (550 AM) in Clay Center, Kansas from 1996 to 1999. He left KFRM in the fall of 1999 to start his own business - World Wide Ag Network. A web based business, and one of the first in the nation to do farm webcasting on the internet from his home studio near Byron. In January he began serving as the new farm director for the Southern Farm Network, an ag radio network with 14 affiliate stations covering mud} of North Carolina. It is owned and operated by Curtis Media Group. Bohling's weekday mornings start around 3:30 a.m. when he produces, records, and distributes 14 programs for stations on the network, most of which are delivered to the affiliates via internet. Besides, his ag broadcasting duties on the network, he also does some ag reports and general news re- porting for WPTF. It is the media groups' 50,000-watt flagship AM news talk station in Raleigh as well as for several other station within the Curtis Media Group. Bohling does a minimum of 25 ag related and general news stories over the course of a day on 19 different radio stations with formats including talk, rock, pop country and gospel. His reports are also carried on several web sites produced by the Curtis Media group. He estimates the total audience exposure for his reports over the course of a day is more than a million people. Meanwhile, he also continues to operate his own ag web site called the World Wide Ag Network, which can be found on the web at www.worldwideag.net.
