Nebraska Extension Chemigation Training has been scheduled at a number of sites for growers needing their chemigation certification in 2018. Training opportunities run from January into the first week of June. Online chemigation training is available for recertification only. Participants will receive educational materials and training so they can properly calibrate the chemical system injection pump for the amount of chemical and water they want to apply.
The training also will cover the evolution and application of chemigation from EPA’s initial approval in the late 1980s to the Nebraska Chemigation Act and chemigation rules and regulations as developed by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ). The Act allowed NDEQ to contract with the University of Nebraska to deliver training.
