Nebraska Chemigation Training Dates for 2014

 
The Nebraska Chemigation Act was passed in 1987 to help ensure that the ground and surface waters of the state would not be contaminated by backflow of chemicals from irrigation water application systems used to apply crop nutrients and pesticides (chemigation).  The law requires a person directly involved in calibrating and monitoring a chemigation system to be certified by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ).  To become a certified applicator, the law stipulates that the person attend a training session and pass a written exam to verify their knowledge of the Chemigation Act requirements, procedures for deciding where and when chemigation is appropriate, what safety equipment is required, and how to calibrate the injection equipment.  The NDEQ has subcontracted with the University of Nebraska Extension to provide the training, proctor the exam, and deliver the results of the exam. 
Listed below are the dates, locations, and contact person information for training sessions currently scheduled for 2014.
