This short course is designed to improve diagnostic skills for professionals managing ornamental plants. It will be beneficial for landscape management professionals as well as nursery growers and arborists. The two-day short course combines an overview of key insects, mites and diseases on ornamental trees and shrubs with in-depth diagnosis workshops. Students will learn to use references and recognize clues during a hands-on diagnostic clinic looking at samples.

  

Penn State specialists Greg Hoover and Gary Moorman have chosen key pests of the host plants you’ll find in many landscapes. They will cover close to 100 pests (insects, mites, diseases) in detail. The format will be lecture combined with hands-on workshops to teach you how to identify signs and symptoms from samples they will provide. You’ll learn to narrow down the choices based on what you see (or don’t see) on the plant. Each key pest will be covered in detail so you’ll learn their identity and biology including life cycle. Our instructors will provide references and show you how to use industry-standard publications when making management decisions.
