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. Sessions are listed below. Sessions have been scheduled at different locations in each county from January through March 2022. These training sessions will serve as a method for farmers to become informed about recent advances in agronomy. We want producers to be made aware of some of the advances in crop production and some of the things we have observed in agronomy in southeast Nebraska this past year. The program will focus on current and important agronomic issues and potential challenges for the 2022 growing season and also address safety, laws and regulations for Private Pesticide Applicators. Topics that will be discussed include: Spray Drift, Dicamba application regulations and concerns and herbicide resistance in weeds. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in crops, invasive weeds, updates on soybean studies, insect and disease issues in soybeans, disease concerns and control in corn, insect issues in corn, and other potential issues in cropping systems will be addressed. For initial certification or recertification, farmers must attend the complete three-hour program.
