The author applied extended BCF/BCFW rules with fermions to a set of simple electroweak processes in colliders. In such processes, there are two electroweak channels, one with a photon and the other with a Z as the internal particle. Some qualifications are needed. Compact results were obtained for tree-level NMHV amplitudes which include a quark-anti-quark pair and n gluons of the same helicity except one in the final state. In this work, we present a brief review of the BCF/BCFW rules and extensions, and list the NMHV amplitudes.
