Pesticide, chemigation classes coming to area
Private pesticide and chemigation training is coming to southwest Nebraska in February, March and April, with classes scheduled in Imperial, Grant and Benkelman.
The private pesticide safety training has been set for Perkins, Chase and Dundy Counties for producers whose licenses are expiring or who need the initial training.
There is a $40 per person training cost for initial or renewal pesticide certification. Bring the copy of the letter sent by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture for those renewing certification. If no letter was received, forms will be available to renew or certify for the first time.
Following the certification meeting or the completion of the $60 self-study course, the information will be sent to the Nebraska Department of Agriculture that the pesticide training was completed.
