     Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years of age from using specific equipment on a farm unless parents or legal guardians own the farm.  Certification received through a course provided by Nebraska Extension grants an exemption to the law, allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and work with certain mechanized equipment. 

CSI: Crop Science Investigation

  Are you a youth interested in science, agriculture, plants, crops, insects, or diseases?  If so, you may be interested in joining us for CSI (Crop Science Investigation)!!! You don’t have to be a 4-H member to join and there’s no cost.  Each meeting will have different topics for you to become a detective to solve a problem and learn about science, crops, and plants in the process!
