Understanding the life cycles of insects and weeds and learning how to identify them is important in the protection of plants from disease and insect and the spread of weed species.
This course shows you how to identify diseases, insects and weeds, understand their life-cycles and select and use appropriate treatments. Control techniques are covered in detail using chemical and biological solutions along with safety procedures and practices.
The first step in knowing how to control a pest, disease or weed is to be able to identify it AND the plant which it is affecting accurately.
If you get the identification wrong, the method of control is likely to be inappropriate.
Identification in fact is the foundation of effective problem control.
This course provides a unique and systematic approach to plant protection, drawing on input from our horticultural experts in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand. It is unlike other plant protection courses in terms of its international approach. This allows you to benefit from a more diverse range of experts (and their diverse experiences); something that is not often found in other schools.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
