    After all the private applicator trainings this year, I hope everyone paid the license fee of $25.00 to the Department of Agriculture that came in the mail a week or two after those meetings to be licensed to all 700 of you!  I have heard the bubble forms take longer, so if you are in that group, hang in there a little bit longer for your license billing from the NDA. 

June 13-14, 2017 - Camp Renegade is an overnight camp for youth ages 8-10 years of age. To register and request a registration form please call (402) 821-2151. Register Early. Need not be in 4-H to attend.  Camp Renegade Flyer with more information.

If you are age 11 or older and would like to learn about one of the most important jobs you may ever have – babysitting - please mark Friday, April 14th, on your calendar. You will learn the basics of safety, food preparation, child development, and other information which will better prepare you.

The clinic will begin at 8:00 AM and conclude at 1:30 PM.

The cost for the Babysitting Clinic is $3.00.

Babysitting Clinic participants need to bring a sack lunch and registration fee.

This winter, we are asking Nebraska crop producers to provide us with  yield and other agranomic data specific to four fields planted with soybeans in 2016 (see survey link below). Both dryland and irrigated fields are acceptable. With this data, we can conduct an in-depth analysis of what on-farm factors might be limiting soybean yield in your fields. We would appreciate if you completed this survey before April 1, 2017 and mail it to:

Dr. Patricio Grassini
Department of Agronomy and Horticulture
387 Plant Sciences Hall, UNL
Lincoln, NE 68583-0915
