For the Homeowner and Gardener
The Department of Agronomy and Horticulture provides research-based expertise and resources for the homeowner and gardener.
The Backyard Farmer show is dedicated to helping you find solutions to your lawn and garden questions. Every year from spring to fall, a panel of experts deals with topics from insect pests and disease, turf, and fruits and vegetables, as well as landscape design and general horticulture topics.
The turfgrass program is made up of experts in the areas of turfgrass breeding, weed science, plant physiology, entomology, and soil and water management. The goal is to provide pertinent research based information to turfgrass managers throughout the year and address agronomic issues as they come up across Nebraska, the Great Plains region, and the country.
Range, Pasture, and Forage
Our research in range, pasture, and forages includes mob grazing impacts, conservation and utilization of rangeland and forage resources, understanding how contrasting nutrient return patterns influence the nature and fate of the nutrient pulse at both micro and macro scales in rangelands, and how fire, climatic variability, and anthropogenic change drive state transitions in rangelands.
