An effective weed management program depends on your ability to identify weeds and understand their life cycles. This information is essential for developing a good cultural weed management program. It is also necessary for selecting herbicides and for determining the proper time of year to apply them. After completing this course participants will understand: • Reasons to control turf grass. • Weed Identification. • Weed Life Cycles and Management.

Weed control is important. Methods include hand cultivation with hoes, powered cultivation with cultivators, smothering with mulch or soil solarization, lethal wilting with high heat, burning, or chemical attack with herbicides and cultural methods such as crop rotation and fallowing land to reduce the weed population. At the completion of this course, participants will have knowledge of the following:

Storing pesticides properly protects human and animal health, safeguards wells and surface waters, and prevents unauthorized access to hazardous chemicals. Proper pesticide waste disposal is an important part of responsible pesticide use. Improper disposal can lead to contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water, causing serious liability problems for the pesticide user, as well as a poor public image.

The value of pollinators to our environment is incalculable. Pollinators visit flowers in search of pollen and/or nectar, and in the process, the pollen grains often stick to their bodies and are carried from flower to flower. In this way, they facilitate the process we call pollination.

Millions of workers are required to wear respirators in various workplaces throughout the United States. Respirators protect workers against insufficient oxygen environments, harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, gases, vapors, and sprays. Respirators protect the user in two basic ways. The first is by the removal of contaminants from the air. Respirators of this type include particulate respirators, which filter out airborne particles, and air-purifying respirators with cartridges/canisters which filter out chemicals and gases. Other respirators protect by supplying clean respirable air from another source. Respirators that fall into this category include airline respirators, which use compressed air from a remote source, and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), which include their own air supply.

A pesticide formulation is a mixture of chemicals that effectively controls a pest. Formulating a pesticide involves processing it to improve its storage, handling, safety, application, or effectiveness.

Every tree has the future potential for disease and insect damage. Factors such as location and weather will play a part in which issues your tree encounters. Disease-resistant trees are the best option for easy care; and for all trees, proper maintenance (such as watering, fertilizing, pruning, spraying, weeding, and fall cleanup) can help keep most insects and diseases at bay.

Aphids and scale insects are common, persistent, and sometimes key pests of ornamental plants. Most cause damage to host plants by the removal of plant fluid, by the toxic action of their salivary secretions injected during feeding, and by serving as vectors of plant diseases that are harmful to key plants After completing this course participants will understand how to identify pests and the damage they cause and IPM strategies for treatment for aphids and scale insects.
