Chemigation training coming to Imperial March 9

    Producers whose chemigation certificates expired on Dec. 31, and who plan to chemigate in 2017 will need to attend a training session and pass a written exam to become recertified, according to Extension Educator Strahinja Stepanovic.  
    He added that requirements for initial and recertification are the same.
    Imperial will be the site for one of those training sessions next Thursday, March 9, starting at 5 p.m. at Crossroads Wesleyan Church.
    Producers who plan to become certified may choose to preregister at the extension office, Stepanovic said. Those preregistering can request a copy of the training manual and calibration workbook to review prior to the training.  
    On the day of the training session, attendees should bring the chemigation training manual, calibration workbook, a No. 2 pencil and a calculator.  
    Those who do not preregister will receive a new copy of the training materials the day of the training.  
    Review of the material in your training manual prior to the training session will be very helpful when taking the exam, he noted.  
    Training and testing will take approximately two and a half to three and a half hours.         There is no charge for the training or the manuals.
    If inclement weather forces postponement of a training session.
    Contact the Extension offices in Perkins 402-318-1124, Chase 308-882-4731 or Dundy County 308-423-2021 for more information.
