LINCOLN, Neb. – Eight Nebraska Extension offices across the state will offer workshops in January and February providing livestock and crop farmers with information on how to turn manure nutrients into better crop yields while protecting the environment.

Livestock producers with livestock waste control facility permits received or renewed since April 1998 must be certified. A farm must complete an approved training every five years, and farm personnel responsible for land application of manure are also encouraged to attend. Re-certification will be held during the first two hours of the day-long land application training.

The 2017 Nebraska Crop Budgets are complete and available online at CropWatch.unl.edu/budgets.

Seventy-three crop budgets are included for 2017. These include budgets for most Nebraska crops from corn to peas to wheat.

With the challenging agricultural economy, the budgets are one means to identify and focus on specific areas of crop production costs.
