One of the primary requirements of the Lower Platte North NRD’s Groundwater Management Area is that all operators of irrigation, municipal, and industrial well systems, as well as operators who use any type of fertilizer (either commercial or organic) in production agriculture, are required to obtain NRD certification by attending NRD education classes or by passing an online or take home test designed by the LPNNRD.

Certification is valid for four years, after which recertification is required. Uncertified producers are not eligible for any of the NRD’s cost-share programs or for irrigated acre certification.

Certification classes are held at various locations throughout the NRD from January through March each year (see below for the current schedule). The certification classes are primarily geared for area producers and cover several topics, including nitrogen management and application, water quality, water conservation and quantity, University of Nebraska research and recommended practices, and any recent legislation related to water use. The classes are conducted by NRD staff in cooperation with Nebraska Extension personnel.
