Knox County Private Pesticide Applicator Training Locations:

January 12, 2023 in Verdigre
February 16, 2023 in Creighton

Producers in northeast Nebraska will have an opportunity to learn from cropping issues that impacted the area during the 2022 growing season. The Confronting Cropping Challenges program will help producers make decisions for the 2023 growing season and they can renew their private pesticide applicator license. This is the sixth year for the Confronting Cropping Challenges program, and responses from previous years have been very positive. This year, the program will be offered in five locations across northeast Nebraska in December. The program will begin at 1 p.m. and conclude at 4 p.m.

With everything to get done in the fall, low on the priority list might be planning for pasture improvements next year and weed control.  However, some time spent on these topics this fall could pay dividends next year.
