Managing Saline Soils in North Dakota - SF1087
Saline soils have salt levels high enough that either crop yields begin to suffer or cropping is impractical. Excessive salts injure plants by disrupting the uptake of water into roots and interfering with the uptake of competitive nutrients. Several factors contribute to the development of saline soils in North Dakota, but a high water table is a prime requirement. Recognizing how and why salts accumulate is the first step in farming profitably on land interspersed with saline soils. Preventing further encroachment of salinity and addressing remediation strategies are other steps.

Developing Zone Soil Sampling Maps - SF1176-2
In the northern Great Plains region, most soil sampling is conducted to determine the residual soil nitrate (N) available following a previous crop that can be used to reduce the N fertilizer required for the next crop. Zone soil sampling has been very effective in revealing residual nitrate patterns and amounts in fi elds. To develop zone boundaries to direct soil sampling, a number of tools can be used. A regional project in North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota concluded that all the tools detailed here can be used to develop zones.

Yield Mapping and Use of Yield Map Data - SF1176-3
Combine yield monitors are growing in popularity. Data are utilized to build fi eld yield maps in certain years or yield frequency maps during multiple years. Maps serve as location-year record of management and may be predictive of yield potential and soil nutrient variability for future crop management decisions.

Fertilizing Winter Wheat - SF1448
Winter wheat fertilization recommendations in North Dakota previously were similar to spring wheat and durum. As a larger research base was developed for spring wheat and durum, separating the winter wheat from other wheats became necessary due to their unique nutrient requirements.

Farm Management Planning Guide Projected Budgets for Irrigated Crops Eastern North Dakota - EC1662
These crop budgets provide an estimate of cost and returns for producing various crops under irrigation. The budgets are developed for a multicounty region. Soil type and productivity, as well as weather conditions, vary considerably across the region. These budgets are intended to be used as a guide. Producers should develop their own budgets.

Houseplants: Their Selection, Care and Impact on Our Lives - H1260
Houseplants have been a documented part of human existence since the days of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Nature did not create houseplants; humanity did. We have taken plants that were thriving in nature and brought them indoors to be a part of our lives, with widely varying degrees of success. The main challenges of growing plants indoors were low humidity, drafty construction, poor or no centralized heating, and poor light conditions.
