Training dates are set for Nebraska's commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators seeking first-time certification or recertification of their license to use or purchase restricted use pesticides in 2018. The statewide training is coordinated through the Nebraska Extension Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP).  

Go to this CropWatch page  for more informatiation.


The 2018 growing season is just around the corner and I'm sure you are already in the process of making preparations.  As you check impartant "to do" items off your list remember to look at your Nebraska Department of Agriculture pesticide applicator card to see if 2018 is your year to recertify.  

Remember, a private pesticide applicator is one who uses or supervises the use of restricted use pesticides in the production of agricultural commodities on land owned or rented by his/her or his/her employer, farmers, ranchers and orchardists.  Dicamba products (e.g. Xtendimax, Fexepan, Engenia) used in soybeans are now restricted use pesticides.

The certification classes are primarily geared for area producers and cover several topics, including nitrogen management and application, water quality, water conservation and quantity, University of Nebraska research and recommended practices, and any recent legislation related to water use. The classes are conducted by NRD staff in cooperation with University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension personnel.

It is about that time of year again when we need to get organized for the new 4-H season.   With that comes the requirements for identifying your animals.  Please read through this information carefully and if you have any questions, please contact the Extension office.
