West Central Research and Extension Center

District Interest

Since 1904, the West Central Research and Extension Center (WCREC) at North Platte has addressed problems and concerns specific to the counties of West Central Nebraska.

The National Agricultural Aviation Association had the opportunity to visit the University of Nebraska's Pesticide Application Technology Lab this past summer.  The purpose of the visit was to tour the lab and find out more about its research and the potential for future work involving aerial application.  Dr. Greg Kruger, associate professor and director of the PAT lab provided the tour and information on the research being conducted.  With the NAAA's permission, the article can be read in the Fall 2019 issue of Agricultural Aviation.
