2015 Webster County Private Pesticide Applicator Training

A valid certification is needed to allow the purchase and use of restricted use pesticides on the farm.  Producers will therefore need to attend a training session for initial certification, or to renew their certification for another three years.  This applies if they received a letter from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, haven't held a PSEP card, or if their card has expired.

The Nebraska Extension in Webster County will present several sessions for producers or ag workers to certify or re-certify their persticide certification.  Dewey Lienemann, Nebraska Extension Educator, will be doing the Private Pesticide Applicator training at four sites in teh Webster County area.  Anyone from any county may attend.

February 11 - Dick's Place Bar & Grill, Lawrence - 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

February 24 - Webster County Museum Exhibit Hall, Red Cloud - 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

March 11 - Blue Hill Community Center, Blue Hill - 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

March 24 - Webster County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall, Bladen - 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
