Chemigation Training to be Held in Broken Bow

BROKEN BOW–Chemigation training will be held Friday, February 15 beginning at 1 p.m. at the 4-H Building in Broken Bow at the Custer County Fairgrounds.

Chemigation training is a requirement for Ag producers to apply chemicals through their irrigation systems, says Troy Walz, NE Extension Educator. The Nebraska Chemical Act requires anyone that applies chemicals though an irrigation system, whether that be through gaited pipe or center pivot systems, to take the chemigation training and become certified.

In order to become certified producers need to register at their local extension office, attend training, and pass a written test. It is recommended to review the chemigation materials prior to coming to the class, as passing the written test is a requirement of certification. To register for the training in Broken Bow call the NE Extension Office in Custer County at 872-6831.

In addition, the Custer County 4-H Council will meet on Monday, January 28, 6:30 p.m. at the 4-H Building in Broken Bow. The meeting will begin with a dinner for 4-H Council members and spouses/guests. A 4-H Council training and business meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. A meeting agenda will be posted at the Custer County Courthouse in Broken Bow, after January 21. The business meeting is open to the public.
