  • Anhydrous Ammonia Safety for Farmworkers (March 31, 2021)

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/31/2021

    Anhydrous ammonia (NH3) is an effective nitrogen crop fertilizer used throughout the Midwest and beyond. Anhydrous ammonia is potentially dangerous, as it seeks water from the nearest source, which may be the human body – especially the eyes, lungs, and skin because of their high moisture content. Few problems occur when anhydrous ammonia is handled properly and applied as intended. However, it is important for all individuals working with this type of fertilizer to understand the potential health risks, necessary safety precautions, and proper response in the event of an exposure.

  • CNE- Addressing Military Needs in Agriculture (March 17, 2021)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

  • (Spanish Captions) Dispelling Misinformation about the COVID19 Vaccine: What Agricultural Producers Need to Know (February 12, 2021)

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are very effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Now that there are authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, accurate vaccine information is critical. COVID-19 vaccination will be an important tool to help stop the pandemic. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. While more COVID-19 vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine that is authorized or approved for use. Safety is a top priority, and there are many reasons to get vaccinated. Dr. Lisa Morici will talk about how the vaccines have been developed, the safety and efficacy information from clinical trials, and why vaccination works to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Natalie Roy will explain why those who work in agriculture are considered essential workers and may receive prioritization in accessing the vaccine. Please join us in this important webinar so together we can reduce the spread of misinformation and help agricultural communities access the Covid-19 vaccine.

  • Invest in Your Health: Prevention of Zoonotic Diseases (January 20, 2021)

    Contains 7 Component(s)

    This Train the Trainer course is designed for teachers, Extension staff, 4H and FFA leaders and others who work with young adults. Agricultural producers are at high risk for acquiring a zoonotic disease related to their work environment with minimal information related to risks, symptoms and prevention. The majority of emerging infectious diseases in the U.S. are zoonotic in nature. They are often difficult to determine and many go unreported for a variety of reasons.

  • Prevention of Covid-19 Among the Agricultural Industry – Contact Tracing

    Contains 5 Component(s)

    The emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and associated coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) has profoundly affected humans on a global scale in a noticeably short time. Individuals working in agriculture who, as “essential workers", are exempt from stay-home mandates, and are naturally at increased risk of negative health, economic, social, and familial consequences from the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. Language and cultural differences, rural geographies, socioeconomic pressures, and immigration status are among the barriers that impede agricultural workers access to critical education and prevention technologies emerging to combat COVID-19. Additionally, the unusual persistence and multimodal transmission cycle of SARS-CoV-2 emerging from ongoing scientific study may require customization of otherwise standard prevention messaging to agricultural workers to further prevent infection and disease exacerbation.

  • Reducing the Risk of Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes and Perinatal Illness for Female Ag. Producers (December 16, 2020)

    Contains 5 Component(s)
