Description

If you have a garden in your backyard and you grow vegetables for your enjoyment, you are sure to encounter diseases and pests or problems that you do not understand and do not know how to solve.                                                                                            If so, this is the course for you.                                                                                                                                                                                There is no other comprehensive course like this.

In the course you will learn, using pictures what do the pests, that harm your plants looks like, and recognize the damage they make.                     

You will also learn what professional organic materials to use against them, how they work, and the natural enemies, called beneficial insects, used to control them, how they do it, and where you can get them from.

Everybody heard about neem oil for the control of spider mites or ladybugs for the control of aphids, but there is so much more.                                                                                                                                

In addition, you will learn about common garden problems that are not diseases, but rather physiological problems, and how to solve them.

You will learn about soil borne diseases in your growing media, and how to deal with it, without throwing it away, using disinfection which is not chemical.

Finally, there are some ideas about how to enhance your spraying lethality and how to protect yourself when spraying.

Hi,
My name is alexander white.

I am an agronomist and I have been working for almost 20 years as:


a vegetable grower,

a phytosanitary officer,

a beneficial insect grower,

an agricultural guide in Asia and Africa,

and as a vegetable farm manager.

During my work, I gained a vast knowledge and experience, growing vegetables in nursery, greenhouse, in the field, using pesticides or organic, and also in non-soil substrates (hydroponic).

All that, In few of the biggest seeds and pesticides companies in the world as:

Monsanto, De Ruiter and Biobest.

My aim is to share my knowledge with whomever needs it, like farmers, living in developing countries, on one hand, and home, self-sustained growers, on the other hand.
