Abstract

The Crop Management Diagnostic Clinics are a partnership with private industries and numerous University of Nebraska–Lincoln academic departments and research centers. A team of specialists and educators work each year to design the program based on critical and emerging issues.

As a result of attending the CMDC producers and agribusiness professionals gain:
• knowledge of the science of biotechnology and germplasm related to yield, reduced chemical use and speciality grains
• knowledge of precision ag technologies to manage variable rate application and improve accuracy of application
• skills to diagnose weed, insect and disease problems in alfalfa, corn, soybeans and wheat
• skills to implement nutrient management practices to correct nutrient deficiencies and protect water resources • ways to use transgenic crops to control insects
• techniques to improve no till and conservation tillage practices
• understanding growth and development of crops
