Registration Deadline: Monday, June 17

 

Christy Marsden, Extension Educator, Extension Master Gardener Education Manager

 

The garden season is in full swing, and you’ve spent hours planting, watering, and mulching… only to be invaded by pesky insects, weeds and diseases. University of Minnesota Extension has developed this brand new hybrid class that includes online instruction and optional in-person activities. This class will guide you through Integrated Pest Management (IPM), a research-based approach to managing insect, weed and disease pests in the garden. The online portion of the course includes:

  • Introduction to IPM
  • Knowledge as the Core of IPM
  • Decision Making in IPM
  • Non-Chemical Control Tactics in IPM
  • Chemical Control in IPM
  • Practical Application: Activity and Q&A

How it Works

 Learn the online content at your own pace starting in June, with the ability to ask your instructors questions along the way. Login information for the online course will be sent after the registration deadline, Monday June 17. Students who have elected the optional in-person option should have the course completed by July 13. Online course materials will be available for the duration of the 2019 growing season.
