Online Ecological Management Course for Pest advisers

Pest management training by UC Davis' Agricultural Sustainability Institute

potato bug insect pest An online UC course is helping growers and pest management advisers who need information about increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

"Ecological Pest Management" was developed by the UC Davis-based Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SAREP). The course, developed by Chris Geiger, a professional entomologist, and David Chaney, UC Davis' Agricultural Sustainability Institute (ASI)/SAREP education coordinator, was created in consultation with an advisory committee of UC experts and grape pest control advisers.

"Agricultural pest management is requiring more information-intensive strategies and techniques," Chaney said. "As environmental regulations become tighter and older pesticides are removed from the market or heavily restricted, many growers are modifying their production systems to include more ecologically based approaches to controlling pests." He noted that pest management professionals can play a key role in this transition process, providing clients with important information on the biology of pests and natural enemies, sampling programs, decision support tools, and knowledge of softer, less disruptive control materials to use when making their decisions.

By making use of the latest educational technologies, the self-guided course offers a highly interactive educational experience. This flexibility complements educational programs offered by UC Cooperative Extension offices and other agencies.

Online registration information is at Total credits approved for this course are from 6 to 11 Continuing Education (CE) units, depending on which units are completed and test scores.
