This interdisciplinary minor focuses on how cropping systems and the environment interact with the biology of major pests affecting horticultural and agronomic crops. Students also learn to select and apply efficient, environmentally sound pest-management procedures.
Courses come from agronomy and plant genetics; entomology; horticultural science; plant pathology; and soil, water, and climate.
This minor provides sufficient knowledge and skills for employment in agricultural crop protection, product development and sales, crop management consultation, pest regulation, research, or application of agricultural crop protection materials.
All minor requirements must be taken A-F (unless only offered S/N), and students must earn a grade of at least C- in each course in the minor.
