Chemigation Certification Training in Western Nebraska

Chemigation Certification Training in Western Nebraska

Nebraska Extension will conduct chemigation certification training sessions from early March through early April at Scottsbluff, Sidney, Bridgeport, Alliance and Valentine.

Producers who plan to apply crop nutrients and pesticides through irrigation systems during 2015, including those whose 2014 permits expired Dec. 31, are required to attend a training session and pass the test administered afterward. Attendees are asked to pre-register at the extension office where they plan to attend. They will receive a training manual and calibration workbook to review before the training session.

On the day of the session, they are asked to bring the manual, calibration workbook, No. 2 pencil, and a calculator. There is no charge. Training and testing will take approximately 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
