Pesticide Management Symposium

Wednesday, November 16 | Madonna Inn Expo Center | San Luis Obispo, CA

 

This special half-day symposium addresses two areas of pesticide use that are often difficult to manage: diseases developing resistance to fungicides and the impact of pesticides on bees. The latest information on fungicide resistant populations of fungal pathogens and how to manage them is presented by two top plant pathologists. A representative of the California Department of Pesticide Regulation will present an overview of the department’s Pollinator Protection Program.

 

Attendees may be eligible for up to 3.75 DPR CE hours and 3.75 CCA CE hours by attending the Pesticide Management Symposium.
