Crop Production Clinics at Five Sites this January December 14, 2017
Nebraska Extension Crop Production Clinics will be conducted at five sites this January to provide research updates and educational information focused on local agriculture. Programs for each of the clinics are customized, often featuring extension presenters from the area or who have conducted research in the area.
“We strive to provide practical, profitable, environmentally sound, high-impact training for agricultural professionals and producers,” said Chris Proctor, weed management extension educator and clinic coordinator.
Topics will be in the areas of soil fertility, soil water and irrigation, insect pests, plant diseases, weeds, cropping systems, agribusiness management and marketing. View programs for topics offered at each location.
Anyone attending the pesticide applicator license recertification sessions will also meet the requirements for dicamba applicator training. Dicamba is now a Restricted Use Pesticide (RUP) in Nebraska and additional training is required for its purchase and use.
A maximum of six Certified Crop Advisor credits will be available per day in these areas: crop production (two), nutrient management (one), integrated pest management (six), water management (one) and professional development (two).
Check-in each day is from 8 to 8:30 a.m., with sessions from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.
