The 2016 Nebraska Panhandle Advanced Cropping School for Winter Wheat and Field Peas is an in-depth, field-oriented, hands-on workshop designed to teach the management of winter wheat and field pea production, including the diagnosis of production problems in the western Great Plains and Rocky Mountains. A special emphasis will be placed on stress-related problems that can cause yield reduction. The school will be held June 21-22 at the UNL Panhandle Research and Development Center at Scottsbluff.
Does a reader need to be scientist — specifically, a plant pathologist — to appreciate a book about the history of discovering and treating plant diseases? Not if the reader appreciates history, science, and their broader lessons as conveyed through "The Bacterium of Many Colors" by Dr. Robert Harveson, UNL Plant Pathologist at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center.
