other crop health issues.

Engaging scouts in mock identification sessions helps reinforce their knowledge and skills. These sessions can involve providing samples of pests, diseases, or crop health issues for scouts to practice identification and diagnosis. 


Cultural and physical control methods, such as sanitation practices, crop rotation, pruning, and physical barriers, are vital components of IPM. Greenhouse scouts should be trained to identify and recommend cultural and physical control measures based on their observations. 


Greenhouse scouts should be prepared to adapt to these future trends and embrace new tools and methodologies to enhance their effectiveness and efficiency.
