Plan to attend the Nebraska Local Food and Farm Conference on February 4th and 5th in Aurora, NE. This conference is a dynamic collaboration combining Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Societies Healthy Farms Conference, the Nebraska Regional Food Systems Summit, and the Nebraska Specialty Crops Conference & Trade Show into two full days of educational sessions, farmer forums, roundtable conversations, and keynotes.
There are many benefits to utilizing cover crops, such as improved soil health, reduced erosion, weed suppression and forage for livestock. It’s the details of how and what to do that can present challenges in using cover crops. The Eastern Nebraska Soil Health Conference will provide information to growers who are just getting started with cover crops and to those who are already making cover crops part of their operation.
Beginning Wednesday, January 5, the 2022 Nebraska Crop Production Clinics will feature live presentations and present research updates and information tailored to regional crop issues and grower interests. Sponsored by Nebraska Extension, the programs will be held in-person on nine days throughout January, with the final clinic offered via zoom on Friday, January 28.
Private Pesticide Applicator Training Sessions have been scheduled in Nemaha, Johnson, Otoe, Pawnee, Richardson and Cass Counties for 2022 to provide an opportunity for farmers to renew their license or for initial certification. Cost $50.
Now's the time to enroll or re-enroll for the 2021-2022 4-H year. All 4-H youth will enroll in clubs and projects through 4HOnline, a web-based enrollment system that will allow families to enroll on a personal computer or mobile device. To enroll go to: v2.4honline.com.
