Chemigation 

TPNRD, as with any other Natural Resources District in the State, fulfills Nebraska law by issuing an annual chemigation permit for irrigation systems used to apply a fertilizer, pesticide, or other agricultural product. For systems that had a permit the previous year, June 1st is the deadline for each renewal chemigation permit to be returned to the TPNRD office with the $20 renewal fee. New permits, at a cost of $40, can be received by TPNRD before or after June 1st.  However, each permit needs to list a current certified chemigation applicator, which is accomplished through free training provided by University of Nebraska Extension. In addition to new permit system inspections, renewal permit systems are inspected on a regular basis by Natural Resources District staff to make sure anti-pollution equipment is working properly. For more information on the chemigation program, please contact the TPNRD office. 

 

A chemigation permit form is attached below that you can fill out before or after printing. Upon printing and signing it, mail or deliver it to TPNRD with the $40 new permit fee, or $20 renewal fee if applicable. You may also contact the TPNRD office to have us fill out a permit form for you.

 

 

2020 Chemigation Certification Trainings

In or near the Twin Platte Natural Resources District

State regulations require at least one certified chemigation applicator, along with their certification number, to be listed on each chemigation permit approved annually by the Natural Resources District.

If you need to become certified, plan to attend one of the UNL Extension training sessions listed below. This certification, along with the chemigation permit(s) and properly working antipollution equipment, are necessary for each location before injecting fertilizer or other agricultural chemicals into an irrigation system.

Chemigation certification lasts for four years. For more information about a specific session, contact the Extension Educator listed. Contact the Twin Platte Natural Resources District office to obtain permits or to arrange for an inspection.
