Jeremy Milander - Research Technologist

1508 Square Turn Blvd Attn: Jeremy Milander Norfolk NE 68701
I am an Assistant Cropping Systems Educator for Nebraska Extension for the Bazile Groundwater Area (BGMA) in Northeast Nebraska specializing in Nitrate Leaching. I am part of a team that conducts and manages three demonstration and research sites. These sites are being used for the evaluation of crop production practices to reduce nitrate leaching. The sites are also being utilized for educational purposes as well. I am also a key member of the BGMA Communications team also known as the Water Warriors. This team plans and conducts nitrate educational programing.

Field Peas – Pros and Cons

Grain-type field pea is a spring-planted cool season crop that can be grown as an alternative for summer fallow in semiarid cereal-based, no-till cropping systems where wheat-corn-fallow and/or wheat-fallow are the main rotation strategies (Figure 1). Reasons for replacing summer fallow with field pea include:
