Understanding insect pest management

This course is designed for any Upstart farmer who is getting their farm started, struggling with pests, or trying to take preventative measures to protect their farm insect pests. We will help you learn about the insect pests you are dealing with, how to manage them properly, and the different applications for pest management on your farm.
