PS 3127 - Agricultural Entomology

Many biologists believe that the number of insect species globally is in the millions. Fortunately, only a very small number of them have a significant economic impact on agriculture. However, left unmanaged, those few species can cause tremendous loss to agricultural production. In this course, students learn to identify many of the agriculturally important insects of the eastern United States. Students learn their life-cycles, weaknesses, and host crop species. Students learn the principles of the insect-host-management complex.
