Local Interest

Nebraska Extension Educator, Strahinja Stepnaovic, will be offering an additional Private Pesticide and Chemigation Training on April 11 in Imperial at Chase County Extension Office (135 West 5th Street, Imperial, NE, 69033). Private Pesticide Training will start at 8:30 am, and Chemigation training will start at 11:30 am. This will be a great opportunity for those that missed training in February and March to still obtain their Private Pesticide and Chemigator licences for 2017.

UNL Extension Tractor Safety Classes Offered Across Nebraska

 Nebraska Extension Tractor Safety & Hazardous Occupations Courses will take place at nine Nebraska locations this year. Teens 14 or 15 years of age who will work on a farm should plan to attend.

 Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years of age from working on a farm for anyone other than parents or legal guardians. Certification received through this course grants an exemption to the law allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and to do field work with specific mechanized equipment.
