The Plant Growth Facilities Service Center provides high quality greenhouse and growth chamber spaces and the professional support that meets the needs of UNL's Research, Teaching, and Extension Programs.


On an annual basis all employees and paid students who work in the Plant Growth Facilities areas must participate in training for working safely in areas where pesticides are used. This training (Worker Protection Standards, WPS) is being offered all online to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Please complete this training as soon as possible, it is preferred that renewals for Spring of 2021 be completed by February 26th, 2021. The training session is about 30 minutes.

If this is your first WPS training, you will also need to meet with the Greenhouse Manger at the location you will be working at. The Greenhouse Manager on site will then go over more detailed protocols. If you have any questions, please email Jeff Witkowski and he will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Please forward these information to anyone who is new or needs training.

If you completed your WPS training in the fall of 2020, please disregard this message.
The session will last around 30-40 minutes.
