Private pesticide training will be held for farmers and ranchers who need to renew their certified private pesticide applicator’s license or anyone who wants to become certified.
The dates, locations, and times are as follows for 2022:
January 20 at the Community Building in Sargent (1 p.m.)
January 24 at the Community Building in Ansley (7 p.m.)
January 27 at the Legion Building in Arnold (1 p.m.)
February 3 at the 4-H Building in Broken Bow (1 p.m.)
February 9 at the 4-H Building in Broken Bow (1 p.m.)
In order to become certified, producers pay a $50.00 recertification fee for study materials and training and will then be billed from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture an additional $25. If you cannot attend any of these trainings, the other options would be completing an online training costing $50 or attending a private pesticide training in another county.
Pre-registration is required by calling the Custer County Extension Office at 308-872-6831. You must be certified if you intend to purchase or use any restricted use pesticides.
