2020 Nutrient Voucher Credits

Due to the COVID-19 situation, we have planned several options for you to obtain credits.

Option 1: Attend an online training at any one of the eleven virtual crop meetings planned from December through February. Please visit  to register and view the full agendas for each meeting.

Option 2: Watch prerecorded online webinars at your own pace. You can pick and choose which webinars are of interest to you to obtain the needed credit hours. Complete the request form at including your name and contact information. You will be asked to click on what training you are interested and then be directed to the video series. These are best watched on a tablet or laptop as there are questions embedded in each video.

Option 3: Some small in-person trainings will happen around the state. Space will be limited and registration will be required. Contact your local Extension office for more information.
