Nebraska Extension Crop Management Education

Providing Trusted Training for Ag Professionals

 Intensive training for agricultural professionals brought to you by Nebraska Extension in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR).

2020 Training Opportunities:
***NOTICE: Update on University of Nebraska Crop Management Diagnostic Clinics for summer 2020.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and in an effort to protect the health and safety or our participants and presenters - we will bring the training online, directly to you this year, since in-person training will not be available.  So here is the plan for 2020:
  • Our presenters have been busy getting ready for virtual clinics.  We have kept the clinic plots active throughout the pandemic and even though we can't meet in person this year, we have lots to share!  The sessions will be recorded at the Crop Management Diagnostic Clinic site at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center on the actual days that the clinics “would” have occurred.
  • Shortly after, the sessions will be edited down and broken into smaller modules and made available online.
  • The sessions can be purchased and viewed at the participant’s convenience.
  • This will NOT be a live virtual training, but rather an opportunity for participants to participate online when it is convenient for them.  We look forward to bringing you quality education from trusted presenters and research-based information.  The link for the classes will be shared via social media, emails and on this website.
  • Questions, please email or call (402)624-8030. We will continue to post updates as more details become available.

The 2020 sessions will be transitioning to online learning modules - see info above.
