Chemigation - Backflow Prevention
This online engineering PDH course describes pesticide label requirements for Chemigation, Chemigation system operation and calibration and Chemigation system safety.
Chemigation, or the addition of chemicals to irrigation water, has probably been around for as long as both irrigation and chemicals have been used in agriculture. Chemigation became more widely used in the 1970's with the adoption of center pivot irrigation systems in the Midwest. Backflow prevention is necessary to prevent pesticide contamination of surface water supplies as well as ground water.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, civil engineers, chemical engineers and environmental engineers who are interested in learning more about chemigation in irrigation water.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Pesticide labeling requirements for chemigation
- Alternative devices that also comply with labeling
- Maintenance, calibration and safety of chemigation
In this professional engineering CEU course, you will need to review the material contained in Grower Training Manual for Backflow Prevention in Chemigation of Pesticides, Revised 3/3/04.
