Integrated Pest Management and Food Security in the Tropics, 7 HEC (PLS0035)

The aim of this course is to give students a fundamental understanding of how to integrate basic disciplines such as molecular biology, pathology, ecology, and engineering for resilient and sustainable management of pests and diseases in different cropping systems, and prepare them to engage in two-way communication with growers concerning pest problems and possible solutions. Students from diverse backgrounds will learn from each other. In this course, students will move from being narrowly focused on their own research projects to an applied, system-level perspective.
