This new online course was created primarily for pest control advisors and other licensed pesticide applicators and highlights how pesticide resistance develops among pests. It also describes the mechanisms of resistance in pathogens, insects, and weeds and ways to manage resistance within the different diciplines. It is divided into three narrated presentation followed by a final test for each section. This course has been approved for 2 continuing education units in the "other" category from the Department of Pesticide Regulation.
This course is based on a series of workshops held in Davis, Fresno and at the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center during the spring of 2014 presented by Dr. Doug Gubler (Dept. of Plant Pathology, UC Davis), Dr. Larry Godfrey (Dept. of Entomology and Nematology, UC Davis), Dr. Beth Grafton-Cardwell (Lindcove Research and Extension Center and UC Riverside), and Dr. Kassim Al-Khatibi (UC Statewide IPM Program).
