This course is designed to provide an overview of the critical elements for doing L&O pest management, including the licensing requirements and distinction between L&O under FS 482 and T&O under FS 487. Many different products are used to maintain healthy plants and turf, thus we focus on understanding the label, applications according to the label, equipment calibration, PPE and safety, including cleaning up spills. We provide information and practical experience in recognizing symptoms and damage on turf and ornamentals and devising IPM solutions.
Program Comments: This course is a hybrid of lecture and hands-on learning. It is 2.5 days long and is team taught by FDACS, industry experts, and UF/IFAS.
