Chemigation Renewal Deadline June 1, 2020!
The deadline for renewal chemigation applications is June 1! Anyone wishing to run fertilizer/chemicals through their center pivot irrigation system will need to submit an application for chemigation to the Natural Resources District. Renewal Chemigation Applications were mailed out in January to Cooperators who permitted chemigation sites within the Upper Elkhorn NRD in 2019. These forms must be completed and returned with the appropriate fee by June 1 to the Upper Elkhorn NRD to maintain their renewal status. Renewal applications will cost $20; New applications will cost $40 per site and must be approved by NRD personnel before any chemigation activity; and, Emergency applications will cost $100. Chemigation forms are available at the Upper Elkhorn NRD office and NRCS Office in Neligh or on line at www.uenrd.org. These forms may be filled out on line, printed and returned to the NRD office with the appropriate fee. Remember, it is the responsibility of each chemigator to maintain and permit each chemigation site on an annual basis. For further information or questions, please contact the Upper Elkhorn NRD, (402) 336-3867.
