The introductory level crop scout training is designed for entry-level scouts who are working for crop consultants, industry agronomists or farm service centers in Nebraska and neighboring states. The training is also ideal for growers who scout their own fields or are interested in improving productivity, as well as for students being employed by agribusinesses.
Topics covered during the day include: Understanding Corn and Soybean Growth and Development; Crop Diseases and Quiz; Identifying Weeds - Plant Morphology, Using a Key to Identify Weed Seedlings; Corn and Soybean Insect Scouting, Identification, Management; and Nutrient Deficiencies in Corn and Soybeans. Training will be provided by Nebraska Extension specialists and educators.
Cost for the program is $100, which includes lunch, refreshment breaks, workshop materials and a 3 ring binder instruction manual. The take-home instruction manual includes a variety of reference materials that provide resources for crop scouting. For those attending the daylong training that don’t want a copy of the instruction manual, the fee is $60. Attendees should preregister to reserve their seat and to ensure workshop materials are available the day of the training session.
