Chemigation training set for SW Nebraska PDF Print E-mail

By Robert Tigner
SW 4 Agricultural
Extension Educator

Chemigation trainings for anyone needing a chemigation license have been set.
Chemigation training is a requirement for agricultural producers to apply chemicals through their irrigation systems. The Nebraska Chemical Act requires anyone that applies chemicals though an irrigation system, whether that is through gaited pipe or center pivot systems, to take the chemigation training and become certified.
There is no fee for the training. In order to become certified producers need to register at their local extension office, attend training and pass a written test.
It is recommended to review the chemigation materials prior to coming to the class, as passing the written test is a requirement of certification. To register for the training in either Stratton or Imperial call the UNL Extension Office in Chase County at 308-882-4731.
Here are the dates and times for the area trainings:
Feb. 3–1 p.m. MT Imperial Crossroads Wesleyan Church.
Feb. 21– 1 p.m. Imperial Crossroads Wesleyan Church
March 11– 1 p.m. CT Stratton VM Hall
March 26– 1 p.m. CT McCook 4-H building, Fairgrounds.
