Nebraska Extension will be offering five private pesticide applicator trainings via Zoom in March and April. Each one will have a different agricultural area of focus, including alfalfa, corn, soybean, pasture and wheat.
The value of corn production is expected to total $10.0 billion, and the value of soybean production is expected to total $4.42 billion. These figures are up 26% and 45% from the previous marketing year, respectively.
Producers will not be allowed to apply chlorpyrifos on any food or feed products after Feb. 28, 2022, and any food items treated with chlorpyrifos products after that date are not permitted to be sold.
