LAN-250 - Sustainable Pest Management

2 credits

This course serves as an introduction to the study of insects, diseases, and weeds that affect the growth of ornamental plants in the New England area. Both the identification and control of the most common plant pests will be discussed. Control by cultural and biological methods, rather than the use of chemicals will be stressed, but the realistic need for chemical control and the safe use of chemicals will also be part of the course. Preparation for taking the state pesticide licensing examination will be a part of the course. Two one- hour lectures, and one three-hour lab.
