New course available for PCAs to gain continuing education credits and learn from Suterra’s industry-leading experts

BEND, Ore. – April 16, 2020 – Suterra, in partnership with Farm Progress, has launched a new Farm Progress online course for growers, applicators, and pest control advisers (PCAs) to gain accredited continuing education units (CEUs). The free course is now available on the Ag CEU Online website at https://agceuonline.com.

The course addresses the threat of Navel Orangeworm (NOW) in nut crops and highlights the best Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices for effective control. It also includes modernized advice from the University of California and the world’s leading Ph.D. experts from Suterra on mating disruption and other IPM practices.

“The usual channels of communicating with PCAs, distributors and growers have been disrupted this spring,” said Greg Montez, Technical Field Manager for Suterra. “With this online class, we can share valuable information with the industry and get license holders some continuing education hours at the same time. This course is easy to participate in, satisfies the requirements of CalDPR and is hosted by one of the best agricultural publishers.”

The course contains 25 questions and is approximately one hour long. It is accredited by the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) and is available to all DPR licensees, Certified Crop Advisers (CCA) and PCAs, as well as licensees in other states.
