Private pesticide trainings 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 2019:
January 24 at the Community Building in Sargent (1 p.m.)
January 28 at the Community Building in Ansley (7 p.m.)
January 31 at the Legion Building in Arnold (1 p.m.)
February 6 at the 4-H Building in Broken Bow (1 p.m.)
In order to become certified, producers pay a $40.00 re-certification 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 a self-study manual costing $60 is available at the Custer County Extension Office.
Other options would be completing an online training costing $75 or attending a private pesticide training in another county. You must be certified if you intend to purchase or use any restricted use pesticides.
