2024 Chemigation Training

Chemigation is the practice of applying agrichemicals to cropland using an irrigation system to distribute both the water and chemical. Chemigation certification lasts 4 years, so please check your certification license or verify expiration online at http://go.unl.edu/chemigation-search.

Nebraska Extension is gearing up to train new and recertifying chemigators in 2024. Chemigators have two options, online self-study or in-person training. Both certification options are free and have the same time commitment and exam requirement.

All information about the online training is at https://water.unl.edu/article/agricultural-irrigation/chemigation including:
• Access to digital versions of the chemigation training manual, calibration workbook and calculator.
• Watch the two short, online training videos.
• Link to the online chemigation training.

Contact the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Pesticide Safety Education office at 402-472-1632 or pested@unl.edu with issues about the online training.

The in-person training requires registration due to room capacity limitations and to notify attendees of inclement weather cancellations. Please register for in-person trainings at https://go.unl.edu/chemigation2024 or call your local Extension office for help registering online.
