Crop Scout 25 Credit* Technical Diploma
The Crop Scout Embedded Technical Diploma program prepares learners to inspect farm fields and record weed, insect, disease and other observations.
Learners will locate, identify, and diagnose crop diseases or pest infestation areas that may impact crop yield while utilizing technology such as drone areal images, GPS, and hands-on inspection techniques throughout the program. Learners will use knowledge of growth stages in crops in order to predict potential problems during that stage of the growing season. This is an important role to help farmers make timely, informed and economical field crop decisions.
As an Embedded Technical Diploma, this program ladders fully into the Crop Science Associate Degree program.
