Integrated Pest Management
The trainee will learn about the IPM principles and how these can be implemented in the planning as well as the later practical cultivation of crops. Focus will be on cash crops (e.g. cereals, potato, oilseed, beet) and fodder crops (e.g. maize, grass, cereals, beet). The trainee will work with theory as well as real cases, and will be introduced to tools and technologies promoting low pesticide-input pest management.
There is a possibility to enroll in the practical course at Bygholm Landbrugsskole. There, visits to relevant research institutes, companies and private farmers will also be part of the programme.
