University of Nebraska-Lincoln crop production and pest management specialists have scheduled a series of crop production clinics across the state in January to provide the latest research-based information and recommendations for 2016. A clinic will be offered in North Platte on Jan. 7.
Topics will include soil fertility; soil water and irrigation; insect, disease and weed management; cropping systems; and agribusiness management and marketing. The complete agendas are available at http://agronomy.unl.edu/cpc.
The clinics will be the primary venue for commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators to renew their licenses in the following categories: ag plant, regulatory and demonstration/research. Representatives from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture will be present to verify attendance. The crop production clinics also will serve as a venue for private pesticide applicators to renew their licenses.
A maximum of six Certified Crop Advisor credits will be available per day in these areas: crop production (two), nutrient management (one), integrated pest management (six), water management (one) and professional development (two).
Pesticide applicator recertification training will be available in these categories: commercial/noncommercial in ag plant, demonstration/research and regulatory; and private applicator.
Online registration is required for the clinics to provide meals and materials. Register at http://agronomy.unl.edu/cpc. The cost for pre-registration by 3 p.m. the day before the clinic is $65. Online pre-registration includes the 2016 Guide for Weed Management in Nebraska, the 2016 crop production clinic proceedings with further information on the topics being discussed, a meal and refreshments. On-site registration is $80.
