Extension schedules chemigation certification trainings planned

LINCOLN, Neb. – University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension will conduct numerous chemigation certification training sessions in western Nebraska during March, April and May.

Irrigators who plan to chemigate during 2011, including those whose 2010 permits expired Dec. 31, are required to attend a training session and pass the test administered afterward.

Anybody who plans to attend one of the certification training sessions is asked to pre-register at the extension office whose session they plan to attend. There is no charge for the training or the manuals. Training and testing will take approximately 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours.
