NebGuide on Harvesting Crop Residues Newly Revised - UNL CropWatch, August 16, 2012
August 16, 2012
Corn stover is a valuable resource for the Nebraska cattle industry. Demand is likely to be especially high this year due to drought suppressed grasslands and shortage of forage throughout the Great Plains. The NebGuide provides guidelines for estimating the value of the crop residue and how to avoid or minimize effects on soil degradation at harvest while avoiding negative effects on future irrigated crop yields.
