There will be limited opportunity for in-person viewing of clinic presentations at various county locations. More information about these locations will be made available on the Nebraska Crop Production Clinics website. Availability of in-person viewing will depend on local COVID-19 directed health measures in place at the time and follow University of Nebraska–Lincoln guidelines for masks and social distancing.
