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.
Nebraska Extension intends to host in-person training for both private and commercial/noncommercial applicators in 2021 while adhering to local and state health guidelines. This includes training for recertifying applicators and for people getting licensed for the first time (“initial” training).
Nebraska Extension has canceled all in-person training, including chemigation and pesticide applicator training, starting March 16, 2020. The COVID-19 Information page on the PSEP website will serve as a hub for PSEP-related information during the interrupted training season.
Nebraska Extension’s private pesticide applicator training season gets underway in January and continues through April for the approximately 10,000 private applicators recertifying their licenses to apply restricted use pesticides (RUPs).
