Chemigation is the practice of applying agrichemicals to cropland using an irrigation system to distribute both the water and chemical. The chemigation certification program is responsible for training Nebraska producers about the Nebraska Chemigation Act and the Rules and Regulations as developed by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ). Participants can certify or re-certify by attending a training program and passing an exam.
