Untitled document
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Read and comprehend vine pathology and entomology research
  publications.
2. Discuss new concepts regarding pest and disease control.
3. Summarize key points in a vine pathology and/or entomology research
  article from a peer-reviewed journal.
4. Evaluate the theories underlying the research.
5. Identify resources/locations for finding the latest vine pathology and
  entolomogy research publications.
6. Evaluate the appropriateness of integrating research findings into a
  specific vineyard site management plan.
Students repeating Advances in Vineyard Integrated Pest Management (IPM) will be able to:
1. Access and evaluate different, most recent vineyard IPM research.
2. Demonstrate a more sophisticated comprehension of vineyard IPM research theories and concepts.
3. Demonstrate greater skill at incorporating the latest vineyard IPM research and concepts into pest and disease management for a specific vineyard site.
