Harrison, Kenneth M.; And Others
This unit was developed as a guide for use by Kentucky teachers in planning and conducting young farmer/adult farmer classes in the use of agricultural pesticides. The unit contains seven lessons covering the following topics: understanding the importance of agricultural pesticides; using and handling agricultural pesticides safely; developing a comprehensive pest control program; and using herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and miscellaneous pesticides. The lesson format was designed to assist teachers in using problem-solving techniques and the discussion method. Each lesson contains an objective, problem and analysis, outline of content, and suggestions for teaching the lesson, including enrichment activities and resources. Transparency masters are contained in each lesson, and a list of resources to be used with the unit is included in the package. (KC)
