Private Pesticide Training in Cherry County

Ranchers and farmers who will be purchasing and/or applying “Restricted Use

Pesticides” in their own operations need to be certified as Private Applicators by

the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.  Operators that are currently certified

need to check the expiration date on the wallet sized card they received from the

Department of Agriculture. 

 Amy Timmerman, Nebraska Extension Educator, will offer training sessions for

those with certifications that expire in 2019, or for applicators that need to be

certified for the first time, on January 16 at 1:30 PM CT at the 4-H Building at

the Cherry County Fairgrounds in Valentine,and January 17 at the Community

Center in Cody at 10:00 AM MT and again in Valentine on April 3 at 10:00 AM at the

Extension Office.  

 Persons who currently hold a Nebraska private applicator’s certification that will

expire in 2018 should have received a “bar-coded” letter in December from the

Nebraska Department of Agriculture.  This form needs to be taken to the meeting.

 Pre-registration is not necessary.  If you have questions, please contact the Holt

County Extension Office at 402-336-2760.  In the case of inclement weather,

please call that office to see if the training has been postponed.

Dates for PSEP training in other locations are available at pested.unl.edu/classes.
