Chemigation Training in Alliance
Nebraska Extension will conduct chemigation certification training sessions beginning in February through early June at Scottsbluff, Sidney, Bridgeport, Alliance and Valentine, as well as other sites around Nebraska, such as Ogallala, North Platte and Ainsworth.
Producers who plan to apply crop nutrients and pesticides through irrigation systems during 2020, including those whose 2019 permits expired Dec. 31, are required to attend a training session and pass the test administered afterward. Attendees are asked to pre-register at the extension office whose session they plan to attend. They will receive a training manual and calibration workbook to review before the training session.
On the day of the session, they are asked to bring the manual, calibration workbook, No. 2 pencil, and a calculator. There is no charge. Training and testing will take approximately two to three hours.
More information and a complete schedule of training sessions throughout Nebraska is available at https://water.unl.edu/article/agricultural-irrigation/chemigation.
At the Alliance location there will be a session starting at 8:30 AM and another session starting at 1:00 PM. Both sessions will be held at the Box Butte County Extension Office.
