Instructor(s): David Weaver
This course focuses on conceptual approaches to integrated pest management. The overall
framework will be the effective production of foodstuffs to meet increasing demands
for safe and healthy commodities for consumers. By integrating multiple tactics, the
production of food can be optimized given the current limitations to traditional “silver
bullet” pest management. Material covered will include the definitions of IPM terminology
as applied to weed, arthropod, and microbial pests; management tactics including biological,
cultural, and chemical controls; host plant resistance and genetic modification; sample
case studies; applicability to specialized production systems.
