Crop producers and agribusiness professionals will learn how to improve their profitability and manage challenging new pest issues during the 2012 University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Crop Production Clinics.

The clinics will be offered at nine locations across Nebraska in January 2012. They will feature presentations from UNL Extension specialists and educators on soil fertility, soil water and irrigation management, crop production, ag business management and policy, pesticide safety, and disease, insect and weed pest management.

The clinics will be the primary venue for commercial and non-commercial pesticide applicators to renew their licenses in the categories of Ag Plant, Regulatory and Demonstrations/Research. Private pesticide applicator can be recertified by attending the clinics.

Certified Crop Advisors can earn continuing education units in the Integrated Pest Management (six CEU), Soil and Water (two CEU), Nutrient Management (one CEU) and Crop Production (three CEU). Attendees can earn a maximum of six CEU at a location.
