Sponsored by Nebraska Extension, the programs will be held at six sites this January and include pesticide applicator recertification training at each. A January 7 Clinic will be held at the Gering Civic Center.
"Individual clinics will be customized to address topics specific to that area of the state, allowing growers to get research-based information on the issues they face locally," Proctor said. For example, the eastern Nebraska programs will include information on "Making Data-Driven Decisions on Soybean Inoculation," he said. In western Nebraska, topics include "Integrated Management of Kochia."
The clinics will be the primary venue for commercial and non-commercial pesticide applicators to renew their licenses in the ag plant and demonstration/research categories. The crop production clinics also will serve as a venue for private pesticide applicators to renew their licenses.
Program agendas and online registration for each site will be available at http://agronomy.unl.edu/cpc. Pre-registration is required and costs $80.
