  • Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network
    Brandy VanDeWalle bvandewalle2@unl.edu
    Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network         This site is designed to serve as a clearinghouse of lesson plans and other materials useful for teaching 4-H and FFA youth about crop and soil sciences.  Check out this site for information to use in your classroom, workshops, or 4-H meetings.        As youth become less connected with agriculture, it is essential to teach them about agriculture. A series of workshops, called Crop Science Investigation or CSI was created to help spark the interest of youth to learn about crops and plants. Dig into some interesting facts about Nebraska crops. Learn how crops grow and factors that affect them. Learn about exciting career opportunities related to crop and plant science. The University of Nebraska offers great majors for anyone interested in anything plants!  Check it out!

Featured Lessons
  • Soils - Part 5: Nitrogen as a Nutrient In this lesson, you will be able to describe the forms of nitrogen found in the soil. The nitrogen cycle and how nitrogen is lost in the environment will be thoroughly discussed. Forms of nitrogen utilized by the plant and the concept of nitrogen credits for such factors as legumes, manure, residual soil nitrogen, and irrigation water will be introduced. [This lesson, as well as the other nine lessons in the Soils series, is taken from the "Soils Home Study Course," published in 1999 by the University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension.]
