Thank you for your interest in the Water Quality Protection Measures training material developed by the Western Integrated Pest Management Center.
There are three training modules:
Water Quality Protection Measures for Agriculture
Authors: Ronda Hirnyck, University of Idaho; Jane Thomas, Washington State University, Dee Carlson, NRCS, Boise, Idaho, Sue Donaldson, University of Nevada
Water Quality Protection Measures for Landscape Professionals
Authors: Carrie Foss, Washington State University; Darren Haver, University of California; Sue Donaldson, University of Nevada.
Water Quality Protection Measures for Homeowners
Authors: Darren Haver, University of California; Carrie Foss, Washington State University; Sue Donaldson, University of Nevada.
The PowerPoint presentations are designed for use by trainers to teach pesticide applicators, landscape and agriculture professionals and homeowners about the ways pesticides can move into water. Each looks at proper application, atmospheric conditions, soil types and pesticide properties that influence the movement of pesticides, and each presents an overview of best practices pesticide applicators can use to protect water resources.
As with any overview curriculum, the purpose of these slides is to serve as the foundation for training and discussion, and trainers are encouraged to provide additional information relevant to their region and audience.
The slides were created with funding from USDA-NIFA through the Western Integrated Pest Management Center. If you have problems downloading the slides, contact Carla Thomas, Western IPM Center Associate Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
