New Greenhouse Pest Management Study Manual
Category 3 Greenhouse Pest Management has been developed for individuals who want to become certified in the commercial and public pesticide applicator Category 3 – Greenhouse Pest Management. The newly revised Category 3 Greenhouse Manual, CS15B, covers the plant pathogens, insects and mites, and weeds common in Iowa’s greenhouse settings, and the various strategies used in managing these pests. The manual (175 pages) was written with full input from subject matter experts across Iowa. Complete with four-color pictures and detailed pest information, this descriptive work will not only assist persons in preparing to take the Category 3G (Greenhouse) certification examination, but will also serve as a reference for applicators and industry support personnel.
The manual will be available for purchase beginning July 2, 2018. Contact your local ISU county extension office or order your copy through ISU Extension Online Store: Category 3, Greenhouse Pest Management -- Iowa Commercial Pesticide Applicator Manual.
The accompanying new certification examination will be available starting August 1, 2018, at testing locations currently approved by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. Until that time, the current certification manual and exam will be used.
