The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) has an important role at Husker Harvest Days and other ag-related events. This year at Husker Harvest Days, NDA staff will be on hand to share information on farm mitigation and negotiations, livestock development, pesticide management and the NextGen Beginning Farmer program. Husker Harvest Days is celebrating its 40th anniversary Sept. 12-14 in Grand Island.
“Husker Harvest Days is a great opportunity for Nebraska farmers and ranchers to see what’s new and innovative in the way of equipment, supplies and technology,” said NDA Director Greg Ibach. “This long-standing event supports agriculture and gives people the opportunity to expand their knowledge of Nebraska’s number one industry as well as the role of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.”
