Welcome to the 12th Annual Crop Production Clinics
As we look forward to the 2019 growing season I hope you find relevant, timely information to benefit you whatever your role in agriculture, as a farmer, crop consultant, pesticide applicator, or agriculture industry professional.
The Clinics have a long history as a part of Nebraska Extension beginning in 1974 as the Crop Protection Clinics (1974 to 2008). In 2009 the Clinics were renamed the "Crop Production Clinics" when the content was expanded to include soil fertility, irrigation, and cropping systems in addition to pesticide safety; agribusiness marketing and management; insect, plant disease, and weed management.
The 2019 Proceedings contains articles summarizing information presented at all the Clinic locations. It is intended to be both a workbook for you to use during the clinic as well as a reference after the clinic. The proceedings are available electronically at https://cropwatch.unl.edu/cpc-proceedings-2019 and at https://www.agronomy.unl.edu/2019-CPC-Proceedings.
Again this year we selected the Clinic locations and content with the intent to provide regionally relevant information. Our hope is to provide high-impact training for Nebraska’s producers and agricultural professionals. We are continually trying to improve the program. If you have any comments or suggestions about how to continue developing the Clinics, please let us know.
