Foreword

Darrell W. Nelson

It is a pleasure to provide you with a copy of the 116th Annual Report of the

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Agricultural Research Division (ARD).

This report is our opportunity to inform you about our research programs

and accomplishments and help the university community to assess the progress

and effectiveness of our collective efforts to develop new knowledge. After

examining this report, we hope that you will agree that research findings of ARD

faculty have resulted in new technology and knowledge for Nebraskans that will

improve the profitability of our enterprises, better manage our natural resources,

enhance environmental quality and improve our quality of life.

This report provides some highlights of our research accomplishments; listings

of our scientists and research associates, research projects, awards and honors received by faculty and graduate

students, and outputs from our research program; and the ARD financial report for the period July 1, 2001 to

June 30, 2002. This report was compiled in compliance with the intent of the law of the State of Nebraska that

established the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station on March 31, 1887.

Outlined in the Research Highlights section are some of the significant accomplishments of our faculty during

the past few years. Included among these accomplishments are:

—muscle profiling research provided the scientific basis for new, higher-value beef products.

—an IANR team developed comprehensive information growers can use to improve sugarbeet production.

—textile science research has helped lay the groundwork for national standards for clothing design to

protect against the sun’s harmful rays.

—interventions that could help reduce the prevalence of E. coli 0157:H7 in feedlot cattle have proved

promising in large-scale IANR feedlot studies.

—family scientists are exploring how best to use technology to provide counseling services to people in

rural areas.

—development of integrated management strategies that help golf course and other sports turf managers

maintain tough, healthy and environmentally friendlier turf.

—marketing studies that point to potential higher-value niche markets for agricultural products in the

north central United States.

Although fiscal year 2002 was challenging from both the standpoint of state funding and drought, we continue

to be excited about our research program and the scientists who strive to solve today’s problems and help provide

knowledge necessary to address the issues that will arise in the future. The ARD is blessed to have a large

number of dedicated, creative and productive faculty and staff members who daily work in laboratories, research

plots and animal facilities to provide the information critical to keeping Nebraska competitive in world

agriculture. The ARD was created to serve the people of Nebraska and the nation. We welcome your input on

our current research efforts and on your needs for new knowledge and technology.

Research Highlights

6

The Agricultural Research Division is the only

public entity in Nebraska charged with conducting

agricultural research. It is part of a national

network of state agricultural experiment stations

located in Land Grant Universities across the United

States. In 1973, the state legislature passed LB 149,

which established the Institute of Agriculture and

Natural Resources. The Agricultural Research Division

was created as one of IANR’s six divisions. The

state legislation also expanded the federal mandate for

agricultural research conducted by the Nebraska

experiment station to include research in natural

resources, human resources and family sciences. The

ARD research portfolio represents a scientific investment

in Nebraska’s future. ARD research not only

solves today’s problems, it also defines tomorrow’s

opportunities.

New beef products

rooted in IANR

research

The flat iron steak and other

new beef cuts that are grabbing

attention at restaurants and meat

counters nationwide have scientific

roots in Nebraska research.

In the largest study of its

kind, IANR meat scientists

teamed with University of

Florida colleagues to analyze

muscles in the beef chuck and

round to identify which might be

better used. They found

untapped potential in several

muscles usually used for ground

beef or roasts.

This research provided the

scientific foundation for new

beef products developed by the

IANR research provided the scientific foundation for the flat iron

steak, which is among the promising new beef products. It comes

from the top shoulder of the chuck, which traditionally is used for

roasts or ground beef.

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association

(NCBA) and the meat

industry. Scientists identified the

potential of numerous undervalued

muscles and called industry

attention to possible new

higher value uses. These findings

are changing industry thinking

about how best to cut and use

some muscles.

Researchers’ close collaboration

with the NCBA, the

Nebraska Beef Council and the

meat industry helped assure

research findings got into

industry’s hands where they

could be translated into new

beef products for the marketplace.

The flat iron steak is the best

known outcome of this research

and the NCBA’s broader effort

to introduce new Beef Value

Cuts. This new steak comes from

the top blade or shoulder muscle

of the chuck and is tasty and

exceptionally tender.

These new products offer

economical new beef cuts for

cost-conscious consumers and

boost beef carcass value. The

flat iron steak, for example, costs

less than traditional steaks. However,

it brings more than twice as

much as roasts and ground beef

made from the top blade muscle.

The value of the beef chuck and

round relative to the rest of the

carcass has increased since this

research was completed.

Food industry

mergers mostly

create higher prices

for consumers

Food industry consolidation

has mostly led to higher prices,

IANR agricultural economic

research found.

Industrial consolidation typically

means less competition and

lower costs for the remaining

bigger companies. In some sectors,

consumers have shared in

these savings. That’s not the case

in the food industry.

An IANR agricultural economist

found that concentration in

the food processing industry has

resulted in higher consumer

prices in most sectors. The

Nebraska economist and University

of Connecticut colleagues

examined two key aspects of

industrial concentration: market

power and increased efficiency.

As an industry consolidates,

surviving companies gain market

power, which allows them to

charge more for products

because there are fewer competitors.

Consolidation usually affects food

prices.

The other theory is that

industrial concentration makes

industry more efficient, able to

produce at lower costs and

potentially leads to lower, or at

least stable, consumer prices.

Researchers found that the

impact of consolidation on

prices depends on which factor

dominates: the market power an

industry gains or resulting cost

efficiencies.

IANR research found that rising

concentration boosted market

power for 28 of the 33 food

processing industries. It also led

to lower production costs in 14

and higher costs in nine. Production

costs remained roughly the

same in the other 10.

The overall impact on food

prices: up in 24 sectors, down in

four, unchanged in the rest.


Results suggest that although

concentration led to lower costs

in most cases, the market power

effect more than dominated the

cost-efficiency effect associated

with rising concentration, resulting

in higher food prices in most

industries.

Inhibitors might

help cut livestock

methane gas

The environment and cattle

producers both could benefit

from Nebraska scientists’ efforts

to reduce the amount of methane

cattle produce.

Methane is the second most

abundant greenhouse gas. The

world’s agricultural livestock produce

about 17 percent of atmospheric

methane. It’s a byproduct

of digestion in cattle and other

ruminants.

It’s also a waste of feed and

energy. As much as 15 percent

of digestible energy in cattle

feed is lost as methane gas. If

cattle produced less methane, it

could significantly reduce the

amount of feed they need.

UNL researchers think

they’ve found a way to reduce

the methane cattle produce during

digestion and enhance the

organic acids cattle use for energy.

If this basic research pans

out, it eventually could mean less

atmospheric methane, less feed

required and lower feed costs for

producers.

A biochemist, chemist and

animal scientist team to design

and test chemical compounds

that block methane production

by inhibiting a key enzyme.

They’ve found four classes of

compounds that inhibit the

enzyme in the lab. They’re further

testing the most promising

and they still must be tested in

cattle.

The university is patenting the

team’s novel methane inhibitors

and the concept. Researchers are

working with a Nebraska-based

private company to explore commercializing

a cattle feed additive

designed to improve feed efficiency

by reducing methane.

Ultimately, the environment

could be the big winner. One of

the researchers estimated that

reducing methane produced by

livestock by 50 percent could significantly

reduce global warming.

Biochemist Steve Ragsdale pours liquid nitrogen into

a high resolution spectrometer his team uses to study

potential methane-blocking enzymes.

Child care a big

concern for rural

women

The availability of child care

is a big worry for rural women.

That’s among the early findings

of a three-year study on

welfare reform and rural women.

NU family scientists are

examining the lifestyles of 42

rural Nebraska women as part of

a regional study. Nebraska’s

study includes women of all

income levels while the regional

study includes only women eligible

to receive food stamps.

Nebraska’s more inclusive

approach lets researchers compare

women in the same community

to learn how income

influences their lives. They’ve

found that rural women share

many similar concerns and joys

regardless of income.

Researchers are interviewing

and surveying participants annually

about the child care, transportation

and medical services in

their communities as well as their

jobs, incomes, expenses and

spending habits.

Child care is a major concern.

Many women work nights so

they can share child care responsibilities

with a spouse or partner,

or rely on family and friends

for child care, researchers found.

There’s also a great need for

quality transportation because

many rural Nebraska women

drive 20 miles or more for shopping

or medical care.

Most women are satisfied

with their communities. Many

believe small towns provide safe

environments for children and

foster strong family ties and

friends.

Team testing

new strategies

to reduce E. coli

Beneficial bacteria might help

reduce dreaded E. coli 0157:H7

in feedlot cattle.

IANR research shows that

selected strains of Lactobacillus

acidophilus, a bacteria commonly

used in yogurt, are promising as

feed additives to reduce

0157:H7’s prevalence. This

research is part of ongoing

IANR efforts to identify specific

strategies producers can use to

limit E. coli in feedlot cattle before

they enter packing plants.

The idea is that Lactobacillus

gets ingested with rations and

travels to the cattle’s intestines

where it kills E. coli. If further

studies prove it’s effective, producers

might add Lactobacillus to

feed to reduce E. coli in feeder

cattle.

In a large 2001 IANR feedlot

study, Lactobacillus reduced E. coli

in manure 61 percent, compared

with cattle that didn’t receive the

additive. Lactobacillus proved

somewhat less effective in summer

2002 feedlot trials although

IANR scientists say it still has

potential as an E. coli reduction

tool.

In the 2002 trials, the team

tested the effectiveness of an

experimental vaccine developed

by Canadian scientists as well as

the Lactobacillus. Early results

indicate a combination of the

vaccine and a Lactobacillus feed

additive was most effective. The

combination’s effect was cumulative.

Because 0157:H7 is common

in feedlots, eliminating it isn’t

likely. Reducing its prevalence at

key times, such as before slaughter,

is more realistic.

IANR scientists are sharing

their results with the experimental

vaccine’s Canadian developers.

Variety selection

key to sugarbeet

production

Selecting the right variety is

crucial to successful sugarbeet

production in Nebraska’s Panhandle,

a comprehensive IANR

study shows.

Sugarbeets have long been a

major Panhandle crop. However,

production and profitability

dropped during the mid-1990s,

partly because growers unknowingly

planted varieties susceptible

to regional insects and diseases.

Shrinking yields were particularly

worrisome because sugarbeets

are expensive to grow compared

with corn or soybeans.

Agricultural scientists at NU’s

Panhandle Research and Extension

Center launched a comprehensive

study to provide answers

to this pressing problem.

They conducted large-scale

sugarbeet variety trials and other

studies in farmers’ fields at 21

sites in Nebraska, Wyoming and

Colorado. Working with a task

and others in the industry,

they studied a broad range of

sugarbeet production issues

including planting, seedling

emergence and different varieties’

response to irrigation, herbicides,

insects and diseases.

This effort produced information

about varieties, insects,

diseases and management practices

that growers are using to

improve beet production.

Researchers found that selecting

the proper beet variety is key

to producing high quality beets

and dealing with production

problems such as weather, disease,

insects or irrigation.

Among other findings, the

team showed that root aphids

were far more damaging than

previously thought. Thanks

partly to this work and how different

varieties respond to the

root aphid, almost all sugarbeet

varieties now have some resistance

to root aphids.

Sugarbeet yields increased an

average of 3 tons per acre and

8,000 Panhandle acres have

returned to sugarbeet production

since the research started in

1997. Sugar content also has

increased, which means growers

earn more for their beets.

Decorative millet

earns All-America

Selections Gold

IANR millet breeders typically

work on improved forage

and grain varieties. But a decorative

version of pearl millet they

developed because of its unusual

purple leaves is likely to make a

splash in gardens nationwide

after earning a prestigious award.

The decorative purple millet,

called Purple Majesty, was named

an All-America Selections Gold

Medal award winner for 2003.

It’s an unusually attractive hybrid

of pearl millet, which is commonly

called cattail or bullrush

millet.

maturity, this annual plant is 4 to

5 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet in diameter.

It’s suited to sunny, welldrained

sites in climates from

southern Canada to the southern

United States.

Purple Majesty topped the

floral class in All-American

Selections trials and earned the

organization’s prestigious Gold

Medal for its exceptional garden

performance. The Gold Medal

award is reserved for plant

breeding breakthroughs. It’s

awarded rarely, typically only

once or twice a decade. AAS is a

nonprofit organization that has

conducted independent plant

trials since 1932.

Ball Horticultural Products

Co., a plant wholesaler, is marketing

NU’s Purple Majesty to

the nursery industry through a

university licensing agreement.

NU will receive royalties on

sales.

Test makes cooking

oil check fast, easy

Food processors know the

freshest oil makes the best food

products.

Cooking oil starts to go bad

long before a noticeable odor

sets in so companies frequently

test oil freshness. The current

commercial testing method uses

chloroform, which is expensive

to use and hard to dispose of.

There’s lots of interest in

methods that eliminate the use

of hazardous chemicals so the

Nebraska team studied more

efficient, environmentally friendlier

ways to check oil quality.

The result is a new technique

that quickly and accurately measures

oil quality using only light.

They found that near-infrared

spectroscopy, a technique widely

used in the grain industry, is

effective for checking oil freshness.

Near-infrared spectroscopy

uses light wavelengths just

beyond the visible range for a

variety of measurements.

Oil goes bad when oxygen

attacks its fatty acids in a process

called oxidation, during which oil

begins to take on a rancid odor

and flavor. But the first oxidation

step creates an odorless peroxide,

which companies measure to

determine how much oil has

begun oxidation.

The Nebraska team found

that by exposing oil to nearinfrared

light and measuring

how much light is absorbed, they

could measure oil’s peroxide

value, or ultimately the oil’s

freshness. The method eliminates

chloroform and is faster

and easier.

IANR researchers say it will

be up to equipment manufacturers

to market the technique to

customers.

Team developing

lake classification

system to assess

water quality

Agriculture is the dominant

influence on Nebraska’s lakes

and reservoirs.

NU scientists are studying the

interaction of agriculture and

surface water to develop a model

lake classification system suitable

for agricultural regions nationwide.

Results so far indicate most

Nebraska lakes and reservoirs

are so heavily influenced by agriculture

that water quality varies

little between lakes. Samples

from more than 250 lakes and

reservoirs statewide show that,

except for groundwater-fed

Sandhills lakes, most fall into this

ag-dominated ecology category.

The team is working on

methods to distinguish water

quality differences among

seemingly similar lakes. They’ll

Beatrice.

combine current and historic

information to create computer

models to estimate water conditions

before Euro-American

settlement. They’ll also develop a

software program that ranks

lakes according to water quality.

Ultimately, they hope their

model system will provide the

U.S. Environmental Protection

Agency with better tools for

assessing, protecting and improving

water quality in lakes and

reservoirs in agricultural areas.

Monitoring water quality

remotely is a major element of

this research.

IANR remote-sensing specialists

are developing “spectral signatures”

of the lakes using

equipment that measures bluegreen

algae concentrations by

reflected light patterns. The

extent of blue-green algae

blooms help indicate a lake’s

nutrient levels and water quality.

When perfected, these measurements

could be made from

an airplane or satellite.

Protein supplement

improves heifer

rebreeding

Getting heifers ready to

rebreed after their first calf is a

major, potentially costly concern

for ranchers. Normally, fewer

than 85 percent of heifers successfully

rebreed after their first

calf.

A two-year study on a commercial

Sandhills ranch showed

that increasing metabolizable

protein intake during a heifer’s

first pregnancy boosts rebreeding

rates to as much as 95 percent.

IANR animal scientists compared

metabolizable protein

with conventional crude protein

supplementation. Cattle need

two protein types, one for the

animal and one for rumen

microbes. Metabolizable protein

supplies both.

The metabolizable protein

system doesn’t require added

labor but costs about $3 more

per cow. Researchers wanted to

know whether the increased cost

made economic sense.

This research showed that it

does.

Rebreeding rates for heifers

fed metabolizable protein typically

increased between 4 percent

and 10 percent, compared with

those receiving crude protein.

That improvement in

rebreeding success represents an

average $20 per head savings

with the metabolizable protein

supplementation. For a small

family ranch of 50 heifers, that’s

$1,000 saved annually.

Researchers say the economics

of this study are especially

solid because they are based on

data from a commercial ranch.

An integrated

approach to tough,

healthy turf

Finding ways to provide quality

turf using less water, chemicals

and other inputs is a

hallmark of IANR’s turfgrass

science team.

Turf scientists, plant pathologists,

entomologists, biological

systems engineers and others

collaborate on everything from

basic research to applied problems.

Nebraska’s integrated

approach is nationally recognized.

It provides information to

help manage turf in more environmentally

sound and economically

effective ways.

The program probably is best

known for developing improved

turf-type buffalograsses that

need about half the water,

chemicals and maintenance of

conventional turfgrasses. IANR’s

research also has helped reduce

water and pesticide use on golf

courses and changed industry

thinking about fertilization and

other management practices.

For example, IANR research

on dollar spot helped reduce the

amount of pesticides used on

9


golf fairways. An IANR plant

pathologist identified better ways

to control dollar spot, one of the

most damaging, costly and

widely treated turf diseases.

Golf courses have been able to

treat for it every 21 days instead

of every seven to 10 days and

maintain turf quality.

Current research on golf

green grow-in procedures also

may change traditional thinking

about how to get greens playable

as quickly as possible.

Turf scientists compared conventional

accelerated grow-in

practices that require heavy fertilization

and lots of water with a

seemingly slower, more controlled

approach.

They found that slow and

steady is best. Accelerated growin

requires twice as much water

and fertilizer, but the controlled

approach gets greens ready for

play at least three or four weeks

faster and encourages healthier

roots that withstand disease, heat

and other stresses.

Textile scientist

helps establish

clothing standards

Those carefree days of

unprotected fun in the sun are

history. And for good reason: the

sun’s rays can be killers.

Today’s consumers are looking

for ways to protect themselves

when they’re in the sun,

either with sunscreen or clothing.

That’s why consumers need

assurances that clothing marketed

for sun protection actually

blocks harmful ultraviolet radiation.

For people who have skin

cancer or are undergoing radiation

or chemotherapy, adequate

sun protection can be a life-ordeath

matter.

10

Textile Scientist Patricia Crews measures the Ultraviolet Protection Factor of a

knitted fabric being considered for sun-protective clothing.

An IANR textile scientist’s

extensive research on fabrics’

UV-protective properties has

provided information for clothing

makers. Her results helped

lay groundwork for national

standards for sun-protective

clothing.

This College of Human

Resources and Family Sciences

researcher has been a leader on

national committees that developed

standards for testing and

labeling UV-protective clothing.

For example, these committees

developed a standard for labeling

UV-protective clothing with a

UPF number ranging from 15 to

50+. Like an SPF number of

sunscreen, the higher a UPF, the

longer a person can stay in the

sun before skin under the fabric

becomes red.

Thanks partly to this

Nebraska textile scientist’s work,

standards for sun-protective

clothing were finalized in 2000.

Standardized testing and labeling

should help consumers make

better-informed decisions and

assure that protective clothing

delivers the UV protection it

promises.

Chicory industry

emerging from

Panhandle research

A new industry based on

chicory is emerging in

Nebraska’s Panhandle, which

now boosts the nation’s only

chicory processing plant.

Chicory’s development as a

new Nebraska crop is based

largely on research by agricultural

scientists at NU’s Panhandle

Research and Extension

Center at Scottsbluff. Since 1995,

IANR researchers and extension

specialists have studied chicory’s

potential.

Chicory is a root crop that is

used as a pet food ingredient. It’s

widely grown in Europe, but not

in the United States.

IANR research determined

how best to plant, tend and harvest

chicory. It showed it could

be profitably grown in the region

and found that western

Nebraska can produce chicory

that meets or exceeds the best

grown in Europe. The IANR

team worked with area farmers

and businesses to help establish a

fledgling chicory industry.

In fall 2001, U.S. Chicory, a

private company, opened a

chicory processing plant, the first

in the Americas. The plant processed

950 acres of chicory

grown by four farmers and

IANR researchers in 2001 and

again in 2002.

The $2 million plant

employed 25-30 people when it

opened. Employment is expected

to grow to 50 to 75 people when

the plant reaches capacity within

four years. Panhandle chicory

production is expected to increase

to 5,000 acres by 2003

with the potential for 10,000

acres by 2005. Yields average 19

tons of root per acre and bring

about $55 per ton. If 10,000

acres were planted, growers

would gross about $10 million.

Chicory roots are now processed at the nation’s first chicory

processing plant.


Case studies part

of project to ID

markets higher

in value

Tapping alternative markets

can improve profits for some

small farmers and ranchers. But

the success of a new venture

often hinges on solid marketing

information up-front.

IANR researchers are heading

a four-state project that is identifying

untapped, higher-value

markets to help boost small farm

and ranch profitability and providing

information to make these

ideas work. The USDA-funded

North Central Initiative for

Small Farm Profitability aims to

improve the profitability, efficiency

and competitiveness of

small Midwestern farms and

ranches. Launched in 1999, the

project includes researchers from

Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and

Wisconsin.

The project includes providing

information about alternative

markets, including valuable marketing

research, case studies of

successful businesses and a

model for entering the market.

Organizers also work with 32

producer clusters that help guide

research. These groups of farmers

and ranchers share an interest

in innovative alternatives to traditional

agriculture.

Recently completed IANR

case studies identified untapped

markets. For example, a survey

of more than 500 households in

the four states highlighted the

potential for selling locally grown

food to grocery stores, restaurants

and consumers.

Other studies detailed the

profit potential for farmers who

produce specialty cheeses or supply

locally grown wheat and barley

to craft breweries.

These studies provide market

research traditionally available

only to bigger businesses and at

high cost. It gives producers

solid numbers demonstrating

consumer interest that they can

use to encourage grocers and

restaurants to carry local

products.

Team explores how

best to maximize

corn yields

Nebraska’s corn yields are

probably only about half of their

full biological potential, given

their genetics and the state’s soils

and climate.

IANR agronomists want to

push those yield limits. They’re

studying the most cost-effective,

environmentally sound ways to

maximize yields for the state’s

leading crop. Understanding the

biological underpinnings of yield

and developing more precise

management techniques should

help farmers boost yields, stay

competitive, protect the environment

and meet projected world

demand for corn.

They’re examining a multitude

of yield-influencing factors

including soil fertility, carbon

sequestration, nitrate leaching

and soil microbial function.

They’re conducting similar

research on soybeans.

They want to learn how to

consistently grow corn at 70 percent

to 80 percent of true yield

potential. Statewide corn yields

average about 150 bushels per

acre. Researchers think true yield

potential for eastern and central

Nebraska is closer to 300 bushels

per acre. During the study’s first

three years, the highest yields

were consistently 250 to 260

bushels per acre in drip-irrigated

plots.

The team is creating a map of

yield potential and optimum

planting dates for Nebraska

using climate and research data.

This map will show producers

how planting date and hybrid

choice influence yield potential

by region. In coming years, scientists

will combine yield results

with findings from an IANR soil

fertility project to revise corn

nutrient management recommendations,

emphasizing efficiency

for elevated yields.

Researchers also hope to cre-

ate better crop-growth models,

including planting dates, crop

densities and nutrient requirements,

to help farmers maximize

yields. Existing models

underpredict yields in better

growing environments such as

Nebraska.

Underestimating yields also

underestimates the amount of

carbon that may remain in the

soil. That could cost farmers

money if the government someday

pays farmers to store carbon

on their land.

Carrot chips could

help combat vision

problems

Vitamin A deficiency is a

leading cause of blindness

among children in developing

countries and also can lead to

severe illness and death.

IANR nutrition scientists

hope their new carrot chips

someday will help combat vitamin

A deficiency and its devastating

effects.

They developed tasty deepfried

carrot chips that look like

bright orange potato chips and

are packed with vitamin A. While

the chips’ high fat content isn’t

desirable in the United States, it’s

acceptable in developing countries

where many people don’t

consume enough calories.

An Indonesian graduate student

who helped develop the

chips has returned home and

hopes to get carrot chips produced

locally and incorporated

into the nation’s school lunch

program.

The team also developed a

lower-fat version of the chips

and hopes to explore its potential

as a snack in developed

countries.

Center pivots key

in managing water

Careful nitrogen management

and the right technology can

help farmers protect groundwater

from excessive nitrate contamination,

which is a concern

for private and municipal drinking

water wells.

Center pivot irrigation systems

are a key part of that water

management equation, a six-year

NU study found.

An IANR team compared

nitrate-nitrogen levels in shallow

groundwater under test fields

irrigated with surge, conventional

furrow irrigation or center

pivots.

This research found that

nitrate levels were consistently

lower under center pivotirrigated

fields. These findings

are especially significant in

Nebraska, which has more than

7 million irrigated acres, twothirds

of which are irrigated with

center pivots.

Compared with the furrowirrigated

field, the surge-irrigated

field received 60 percent less

water and 31 percent less nitrogen,

while the center pivot field used

66 percent less water and 37 percent

less nitrogen. Although the

surge-irrigated field received

almost as much water as the pivot

field, surge didn’t limit nitrate

contamination nearly as well.

Researchers found that the

best way to limit nitrate leaching

into groundwater is by controlling

water use and spoon-feeding

nitrogen fertilizer to crops

through a center pivot.

This research showed that

center pivots combined with

careful management can help

keep groundwater nitrate levels

at or near 10 parts per million,

the federal maximum for drinking

water, without significantly

compromising crop yields.

Keeping pigs

in same pen beats

mixing, sorting

Contrary to popular belief,

staying put is best for feeder pigs

in a wean-to-finish operation.

For producers, this saves time

and might improve profits.

Variations in pig weight can

increase the time needed to get

pens of pigs to market weight

and can hurt sale prices. To combat

this problem, many producers

overstock pens at weaning,

remove the lightest pigs from a

pen about three weeks later and

remix them with other lightweight

pigs in hopes of enhancing

performance.

Research by an IANR animal

scientist at the Northeast

Research and Extension Center

showed it’s best to leave the pigs

in the same pens.

He found that moving and

remixing lightweight pigs doesn’t

improve performance or

decrease variation in pig weight

at slaughter.

Results show that even

though a pig may be smaller than

the rest of the pigs in the pen,

pigs are better off staying with

their penmates. Removing and

mixing also had no effect on

daily gain, feed intake or carcass

characteristics.

Slaughter weights show

removing and mixing doesn’t

decrease weight variation at

slaughter. The greatest weight

differences were among pigs

from the removed and mixed

pens. Pigs from the removed and

mixed pens were at both ends of

the weight distribution curve

while no pigs in unsorted pens

were among the lightest weight

categories.

Sorting pigs closer to market

weight yielded similar results.

Mike Brumm, an animal scientist, checks a pen of feeder pigs. His research

shows that leaving pigs in the same pen instead of sorting and mixing lightweight

pigs in a wean-to-finish operation is better for them.

Technology might

improve access

to counseling

Technology might bridge

miles that can make it difficult

for rural residents to access mental

health counseling.

In parts of Nebraska, an

hour-long counseling session

requires a day-long trip, particularly

if the therapist’s office is

three or more hours away. Travel

time, plus gas and meals, may

make counseling too expensive

or impractical for some rural

residents.

An IANR family scientist is

studying the potential of using

two-way video technology to

make counseling more accessible.

He and graduate students at

the Family Resource Center in

NU’s College of Human

Resources and Family Sciences

are conducting a pilot study of

long-distance counseling’s feasibility.

In communicating via technology,

whether it’s the Internet,

television or telephone, some

factors critical to successful

counseling, such as nonverbal

communication, can be lost.

Researchers want to know

whether the therapeutic relationship

can be preserved while

using technology.

They want to determine the

key ingredients needed for the

successful delivery of counseling

services via technology.

Researchers are working with

clients in western Nebraska’s

Arthur County. Under faculty

supervision, graduate students in

marriage and family therapy provide

counseling. Counselors

travel to Arthur County and

meet face-to-face with clients

early in the process.

A two-way video link via

satellite connects the counselor

in Lincoln with clients, who

come to the Arthur County High

School’s distance education

room for the sessions. Clients say

that having access to counseling

compensates for less in-person

contact with a therapist.


Glimpses at ARD

research

— Most livestock waste

lagoons in a two-year study

weren’t polluting groundwater.

IANR water scientists

monitored 16 swine, dairy and

beef cattle waste lagoons at 13

Nebraska sites to identify

indicators of waste lagoon

seepage and potential impacts

on groundwater quality. Ten of

the 12 active lagoon sites

sampled didn’t appear to

pollute nearby groundwater.

While these results are

encouraging, the water scientist

who led the project cautioned

that individual lagoons’

potential impact on

groundwater quality varies,

depending on many site

variables and how they are

operated and maintained.

— Bean pod mottle virus

can hurt soybean yields, quality

and, ultimately, growers’

earnings. There’s no cure so an

IANR entomologist and a

plant pathologist have teamed

up to develop prevention

techniques. It’s part of a larger

regional study. Their research is

laying the groundwork for

management

recommendations, which they

hope to develop within two

years. Spring populations of

bean leaf beetle spread the

virus. This research shows that

applying insecticidal seed

coatings to protect seedlings

from beetles and delaying

planting help reduce or limit

spring beetle populations in

soybeans.

— An IANR family scientist

is working on better ways to

approach sex education and

help teens make decisions

about sex. He surveyed 102

high-achieving Nebraska high

school seniors to learn how

teens make decisions about sex

and factors that might

influence sexual abstinence.

Results show that family

environment strongly

influences teen sexual behavior.

Teens were more likely to be

abstinent if they: believed

premarital sex was wrong or

inappropriate; had strong

religious faith and were

involved in organized religion;

had parents, siblings and close

friends with conservative

attitudes about premarital

sexual behaviors; and had a

warm, supportive relationship

with both parents. Of the 102

teens, 58 were abstinent while

43 were sexually active; 85

percent said abstinence had

few, if any, disadvantages.

— Most rural Nebraskans

consider community

involvement important to their

town’s future and the vast

majority donated time and

money to community projects

in the past year, the 2002

Nebraska Rural Poll showed.

However, few people plan to

leave assets to their community

in their wills and nearly 50

percent aren’t sure. The IANR

rural sociologist who heads the

annual poll said the large

number of undecided

respondents represents a

chance to educate rural people

about how best to keep their

wealth at work locally while

caring for their families. The

poll, conducted by the

university’s Center for Applied

Rural Innovation, has surveyed

rural Nebraskans perceptions

and views since 1995. It tracks

trends and provides

information on rural

perspectives for community

leaders, policy-makers and

lawmakers.

— Crop diversity helps

encourage beneficial lady

beetles, commonly called lady

bugs, to stick around all season

long munching aphids and

other crop pests, an IANR

entomologist’s research shows.

This study examined which

types of lady beetles frequent

particular crops and when.

This information should help

make better use of lady beetles

for biological pest control.

Researchers found that lady

beetles can help control pests

throughout the growing season

in corn, grain sorghum, winter

wheat, alfalfa and other crops

that mature at different times if

they are growing close to each

other so lady beetles have a

continuous food supply.

— Chickpeas are increasingly

popular with both American

consumers and Nebraska

Panhandle farmers. Panhandle

chickpea plantings jumped

from 1,000 acres in 2000 to

10,000 acres in 2002. IANR

scientists at NU’s Panhandle

Research and Extension Center

at Scottsbluff have studied

chickpea production for more

than a decade. Their findings

are providing best management

strategies for producing them

under Nebraska conditions.

IANR’s production information

is especially useful since

chickpeas are new to the region

so growers have little experience

growing them. Researchers

say chickpeas could provide

a new Panhandle specialty crop

and help meet increasing

demand for the legume.

The color purple is bad

news for wetlands. Purple

loosestrife, a noxious weed,

chokes out native plants and

ruins wildlife habitat in wetlands

and waterways. An IANR

weed scientist at NU’s Northeast

Research and Extension

Center is studying how best to

control this destructive invader

with integrated controls,

including mowing, discing,

biocontrols and herbicides. He

works with county weed superintendents

to gather and assess

information to find the best integrated

approach for combating

loosestrife. It’s unlikely

loosestrife can be eliminated

but this research should help

identify ways to reduce it.

— NE422T, the first forage

triticale variety released by NU,

offers outstanding forage yields

and new crop rotation options.

Triticale is typically grown from

grain. However, forage

triticales such as NE422T look

like tall, lush wheat plants. It’s

typically planted in early

September and harvested for

forage in June. Cattle also can

graze it. The NU release offers

superior forage production in

dryland conditions statewide.

Under irrigation, producers

could plant it after corn or

soybean harvest in fall, harvest

the forage in the spring and

then plant a summer annual

crop. This could diversify crop

rotations and help producers

comply with winter ground

cover requirements. Seed is

available from NUPride

Genetics, a cooperative

subgroup of the Nebraska

Crop Improvement

Association.

Variety and Germplasm Releases

ARD faculty involved in plant breeding and

genetics research make important contributions

to the improvement and development of agricultural

and horticultural crops.

Public breeding programs such as ARD’s are essential

to the continued enhancement of plant

germplasm. These programs provide the resources

and flexibility to pursue long-term breeding programs

in crops that may not have a current commercial

interest. They also can address genetic,

cultural and management interactions characteristic

of today’s agriculture, as well as the future’s.

Germplasm releases provide improved genetic

material that is integrated into private and public

plant breeding programs. Other releases occur as

new cultivars (varieties), which are increased

through the Foundation Seed Division and then

provided to seed companies for production of certified

seed. The following releases were made in 2001.

Agronomy and Horticulture

Crop: Grain Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]

Germplasm Release: Germplasm Line RN582

Scientists: J.F. Pedersen and J.J. Toy

Released By: United States Department of Agriculture, Agriculture

Research Service, and the University of

Nebraska Agricultural Research Division

Characteristics: RN582 is an S 6 selection from the cross

(RTx430 ms 3 ms 3 x E 35-1) x E 35-1. RTx430

was registered by F.R. Miller (1984) and was

provided to this project containing the nuclear

male sterility gene ms 3 by A.B. Maunder in

1988. E 35-1 is an Ethiopian land race with

white seed, tan necrotic plant color, 2-dwarf in

height, late maturing, and was obtained from A.

Sotomayor-Rios in 1979. RN582 has tan

necrotic plant color (pp__), white pericarp

(__yy), thin mesocarp (ZZ), normal (WxWx)

white endosperm, no testa (b 1 b 1 __), and juicy

20

culms (dd). RN582 has demonstrated high heterotic

potential for grain yield with 10% higher

yields when crossed to AWheatland than the

check hybrid AWheatland x RTx430 over the

three-year period 1998-2000, and 20% higher

yields when crossed to ATx631 than the white

seed tan plant check hybrid ATx631 x RTx437

in 2001. RN582 is adapted to the northern portion

of the U.S. grain sorghum producing area,

and reached anthesis 5 days earlier than RTx430

in that environment. RN582 is a strong restorer

of fertility in A1 cytoplasm. Nuclear male sterility

has not been observed in RN582. It is suited

for the production of high quality grain for

feed or food.

Crop: Hard Red Winter Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Variety Name: Wahoo

Scientists: P.S. Baenziger, B. Moreno-Sevilla,

R.A. Graybosch, J. Krall, M.J. Shipman,

R.W. Elmore, R.N. Klein, D.D. Baltensperger,

L.A. Nelson, D.V. McVey, J.E. Watkins, and

J.H. Hatchett.

Released by: University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment

Station, University of Wyoming, Agricultural

Experiment Station, and the United States

Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research

Service.

Characteristics: Wahoo was selected from the cross Arapahoe/

Abilene//Arapahoe which was made in 1988.

Wahoo was released primarily for its superior

adaptation to rainfed wheat production systems

in eastern Nebraska and broad adaptation to

rainfed wheat production systems in Wyoming

and Nebraska. It is an awned, white-glumed

cultivar, with a field appearance most similar to

‘Arapahoe’. After heading, the canopy is moderately

open and upright. The flag leaf is erect

and twisted at the boot stage. The foliage is

green with a waxy bloom at anthesis. The leaves

are pubescent. The spike is tapering in shape,

mid-long, and middense. The glume is midlong

and narrow, and the glume shoulder is narrow

and square. The beak is medium to long in

length with an acuminate tip. The spike is

22

usually nodding at maturity. Kernals are red

colored, hard textured, midlong, and elliptical in

shape. The kernal has no collar, a large brush

of medium length, rounded cheeks, midsize

germ, and a midwide and shallow crease. Wahoo

tends to be more variable in its flowering

date than either Arapahoe or Wesley. Wahoo

has moderate straw strength. Winter hardiness

is good to very good. Wahoo is moderately

resistant to stem rust, leaf rust, and Hessian fly,

and susceptible to wheat soilborne mosaic

virus, wheat streak mosaic virus, and barley yellow

dwarf virus. The overall end-use quality

characteristics for Wahoo should be acceptable

to the milling and baking industries.

Crop: Forage Winter Triticale (X. Triticosecale rimpaui

Wittm.)

Variety Release: NE422T

Scientists: P.S. Baenziger and K.P. Vogel

Released by: University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment

Station, and the United States Department

of Agriculture, Agricultural Research

Service.

Characteristics: NE422T was selected from the cross Trical/

UB-UW26 where Trical is most likely Trical

100, and UB-UW26 is an unknown winter triticale

germplasm line given to the breeding program

in the 1980s. NE422T is an F 3 -derived F 4

line that was released primarily for its superior

forage production in rainfed winter cereal production

systems in Nebraska. It is an awned,

white-glumed cultivar. Kernels are red colored,

elliptical, large, and slightly wrinkled. After

heading, the canopy is moderately closed and

upright. The flag leaf is recurved and not

twisted at the boot stage. The foliage is green

with a waxy bloom at anthesis. The peduncle is

not pubescent. The spike is oblong in shape and

middense. The glume is pubescent, tan, narrow,

and midlong and the glume shoulder is wanting.

The beak has an acuminate tip, and the spike is

usually nodding at maturity. Based on plump

kernels, the kernel has no collar, a large brush

of long length, rounded cheeks, large germ, and

a narrow and deep crease. The main advantages

of NE422T when compared with most other

forage triticale cultivars, within its area of adaptation,

is its high forage yield coupled with a

good grain yield and its broad adaptation in

rainfed production systems.


Crop: Hard White Winter Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Variety Name: Lakin

Scientists: M. Johnson, J. Martin, and P. Coyne

Released by: Kansas State University Agricultural Experiment

Station, Colorado State University Agricultural

Experiment Station, the University of

Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station, and

the United States Department of Agriculture,

Agricultural Research Service.

Characteristics: Lakin is a hard white wheat with a winter

growth habit that was increased from an F 6

head row, selected from the cross KS89H130/

Arlin. Lakin is an awned, white-chaffed, semidwarf

wheat with an average coleoptile length

and good straw strength, which has been superior

to that of Trego. Its height is similar to that

of Trego while it usually heads about one day

earlier than Trego. Lakin’s resistance to shattering

is acceptable for western Kansas, and winter

survival has been similar to that of Trego. Its

tolerance to pre-harvest sprouting is equal to

that of Betty and less than the tolerance level

of Trego. Pest resistance of Lakin includes

resistance to soilborne mosaic virus, and moderate

levels of resistance or tolerance to wheat

spindle streak mosaic virus, barley yellow dwarf

mosaic virus, and wheat streak mosaic virus.

Lakin is moderately susceptible to stem rust

and susceptible to leaf rust, Hessian fly and

Russian wheat aphid. The overall bread wheat

milling and baking quality of Lakin has been

good. Lakin was evaluated for use in Asian

noodle products, and was judged to have

acceptable noodle quality. Lakin has performed

best in southwestern Kansas.

Entomology

Crop: Corn (Zea mays L.)

Germplasm Release: N547

Scientists: N.E. D’Croz-Mason, J.E. Foster, and

S.C. Mason

Characteristics: N547 is a yellow endosperm maize inbred

germplasm with resistance to stalk and shank

tunneling damage caused by the second generation

of the European corn borer (ECB) Ostrinia

nubilalis (Hubner). N547 was derived by selfing

a selected full-sib family from MBITA, a tropical

population developed by CIMMYT, Mexico.

Although N547 contains tropical germplasm, it

is adapted to Nebraska. It has uniform, open,

West Central Research

and Extension Center

yellow-reddish tassels, is a good pollen shedder,

and requires 72 d from planting to pollen shedding

at Lincoln, NE. Silks are yellow-reddish

and their emergence begins two to three days

after pollen shed begins. N547 produces uniform

and sturdy plants with an average plant

height of 1.90 m and ear height of 0.78 m. Ears

are conical shaped, 0.15 to 0.17 m long, and

have 12 to14 kernel rows with relatively small

yellow kernels on a white cob.

Crop: Purple Prairie Clover (Dalea purpurea Vent.)

Variety Release: ‘Stephanie’

Scientists: D.T. Lindgren and D.M. Schaaf

Characteristics: Dalea purpurea is a native plant found throughout

most of the prairie region of the midwest

U.S.A. This selection, D. purpurea, ‘Stephanie’,

was named and released because of its shorter

height, darker green foliage and increased number

of flower spikes compared with native

types. It averages 46 cm in height and 49 spikes

per plant. Each spike terminates with one or

more bright lavender-colored flowers. Flowers

average 29 mm in length. This is a seed propagated

selection.

Crop: Silky Prairie Clover (Dalea villosa (Nuttall)

Sprengel )

Variety Release: ‘Sandhills Satin’

Scientist: D.T. Lindgren

Characteristics: ‘Sandhills Satin’ is a selection of Dalea villosa

which originated from seed collected from a

population of plants in northern Lincoln

County, Nebraska, in 1988. It has silvery, compound

leaves and drooping, pink flower heads,

typical of the species. This selection has more

compact growth, later flowering and has grown

well in silt loam soils, compared with other

sources of D. villosa. It typically prefers sandy

soils. It averages 43 cm in height and 26 stems

per plant. Flower heads average 53 mm in

length.

Copyrights and Patents

Copyright and patent protection is an important

parameter in research. It is especially

important for discoveries and innovations that have a

potential commercial application. Therefore, from

time to time, the ARD (and the University) may

determine that the public good is best served with

regard to technology transfer by entering into an

agreement with a public or private institution that

provides the institution with proprietary interests in

specific research. The research of ARD scientists

often can lead to a patent. Most of the patents that

have been awarded to ARD scientists have been for

equipment developments and specialized processes.

These patents often are licensed by private industry,

with royalties being reinvested in future ARD

research. The following copyright and patents were

awarded in 2001.

Faculty

Approximately 310 faculty members have

research appointments in ARD. Most have

joint appointments, with teaching or extension

responsibilities as well. Some faculty have responsibilities

other than ARD research (rsch), extension (ext) or

teaching (tch). Administrative appointments, as well as

appointments with centers and other UNL units or

with the USDA Agricultural Research Service (other),

also are noted here.

ARD programs depend on many linkages and

cooperative arrangements in order to make the most

effective use of limited resources and to address

problems of mutual interest. The USDA Agricultural

Research Service (ARS) has about 25 scientists located

on the UNL campus. Historically there has been a

very close working relationship between these scientists,

all holding adjunct faculty status, and UNL faculty.

Four departments contain ARS scientists: the

Departments of Agronomy and Horticulture,

Entomology, Plant Pathology and Biological Systems

Engineering. ARS scientists are noted as USDA in the

other category.

UNL scientists also cooperate closely with many

ARS faculty at the Roman L. Hruska Meat Animal

Research Center (MARC) at Clay Center, Nebraska.

There are about 60 scientists at the MARC facility,

many of whom also hold UNL faculty status in the

Department of Animal Science. MARC scientists are

noted as USDA in the other category.

Another federal facility located on campus is the

U.S. Forest Service National Agroforestry Center.

USFS scientists also work closely with UNL faculty

and hold adjunct faculty status. The Departments of

Entomology and Forestry, Fisheries and Wildlife have

adjunct faculty noted as USDA in the other category.

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service

has personnel located in UNL facilities at the West

Central Research and Extension Center, North Platte.

The NRCS professional personnel there as well as

those at the federal center, Lincoln, work closely with

ARD faculty on a number of natural resources-related

activities.

The Department of Animal Science has a unique

relationship with its industry supporters. Several

industry representatives also hold adjunct

appointments in the department and are noted as

industry in the other category.

The percentages listed represent the proportion of

a faculty member’s time assigned to each function.

The primary research responsibility is identified for

each. All ARD off-campus personnel who are located

at Centers are associated with an on-campus department

as well [Department/(Area of Responsibility)].

Faculty rank and assignment percentages are based on

the fiscal year 2001-2002 departmental budgets.

Research Projects

46

Each faculty member with an ARD

appointment has a federallyapproved

research project. A number of

faculty have multiple projects. There are

395 research projects that were active for

all or part of the 2001-2002 fiscal year in

agriculture, natural resources and family

sciences. Projects are generally three to

five years in duration. Faculty also are

part of a national network of Agricultural

Experiment Station scientists

located at Land Grant Universities across

the United States. ARD researchers currently

are involved with about 50

regional projects in which they conduct

cooperative research with scientists at

other universities, addressing problems

of regional and national importance.

They also participate in approximately

60 regional research committees, which

serve to exchange information and

coordinate cooperative research

activities among institutions.

Research projects are listed by

departments. An asterisk (*) indicates

that the project was discontinued in

fiscal year 2001-2002.

You will note codes following the

project number. The codes reveal the

type of project.

Publications

W hile serving the needs of Nebraska’s

agricultural producers, agribusinesses,

industries, communities and citizens, the ARD places a

high priority on being accountable for its resources and

documenting impacts of its programs. As in all

research institutions, ARD scientists are charged to

actively disseminate results of research in scientific

journals and technical publications. The division sets

optimistic, but reachable, annual goals for scientific

publication, theses and dissertations, and other

measures of research output. In each of the last three

years the goals have been exceeded.

Publications in refereed (peer reviewed) scientific

journals represent professional acknowledgment of the

Journals in which faculty

have published during 2001

value of a research finding to the discipline. ARD

scientists have published in a number of different

scientific journals during 2001. Faculty also have written

books, edited books or contributed chapters for books.

Another major contribution of the ARD research

faculty is the education of graduate students pursuing a

Master of Science (M.S.) or Doctor of Philosophy

(Ph.D.) degree. One responsibility of a graduate degree

is the completion of a thesis (M.S.) or a dissertation

(Ph.D.)

Publications in refereed journals, books, book

chapters, refereed proceedings, theses and dissertations

are listed for calendar year 2001.
