Opis predmeta

The module delivers knowledge in the field of plant protection against plant pathogens divided into four units. Introductory lectures of first unit present review of the evolution of plant pathogens chemical control and emphasise the importance and necessity of chemical control against pathogen in modern agriculture (positive and negative aspects on environment). Also, lectures deliver chemical and functional classification of fungicides according to their mode of action. Second unit of lectures deals with strategies and techniques for control of bacteria, virus, virus-like organisms and non-cellular organisms. Lectures of third unit elaborate: i) basic principles of biological control of plant pathogens, ii) overview of beneficial microorganisms which are considered as biocontrol agents, iii) overview of antagonistic mechanisms. Last unit represents prospects in plant pathogens control and enlighten the development of new technologies for production of environmental-friendly products (self-protecting plants, transgenic resources, enzyme-based product).

Vrsta predmeta

Opće kompetencije

Students will gain knowledge and skills that allow competence in choosing adequate chemical product, technique or method suitable for environmental-friendly control of particular plant disease.

Oblici nastave

  • Auditory Exercises
    will be e-learning supported for allowing student to explore world-wide market of bio-products, trend and future prospects in plant disease management.
  • Laboratory practice/exercises
    aims to promote students’ ability of conducting methods for: 1) evaluation of antagonistic abilities of potential bio-agents (dual-culture, production of volatile metabolites), 2) evaluation of fungal sensitivity to fungicides (germ-tube assay).
  • Lectures
    consists of introduction about different type of pesticides for protection against plant pathogens, basic knowledge on fungicides and their mode of action, fungicide resistance, basic concept and fundamental knowledge of biological control and bio-originated fungicides, and strategies and techniques for control acellular and prokaryotic pathogens.
  • Practicum
  • Seminars
    will be organised as online forum debates (e-learning) in which everyone present is requested to actively participate and conduct individual assignments. It has the function of bringing together students in focusing each time on some particular subject, and where assigned readings are discussed, questions can be raised and debated can be conducted. Excellent forum activity gain benefits and one can be exempted from the written exam.

Način rada

Obaveze nastavnika

Instructional obligation of teacher is to transfer theoretical knowledge in classroom and on e-course at Merlin platform. Teacher need to maintain instructional design of e-course by choosing and using appropriate Information Communications Technology and facilitate e-learning. Entire educational material (text-book, working sheet’s map, repetition materials and materials for self-evaluation) textual and multimedia as well, should be prepared by course teacher. Teacher obligation is to conduct practical laboratory exercises in the manner that allow best development of student’s skills and for that need to assure fungicides and other needed chemicals, forecasting models, filamentous fungal bio-agents and nutrient media to be used in methods for evaluation of antagonistic abilities of potential bio-control agent and working sheet map.

Obaveze studenta

Students have an obligation to attend their scheduled course learning activities. Students are obliged to regularly attend lectures and practical classes and to participate in online activities at e-course: forum debates and seminars. Therefore, signing into e-course at Merlin during first two weeks of semester is obligatory. All work that is set by the teacher must be completed by the due date. Should students experience difficulty in completing their work it is recommended they speak with the teacher. Students have an obligation to respect their teachers’ right to determine course content, methodology and evaluation. Students have an obligation to respect their teachers’ right to formulate and enforce policies on lateness and attendance. Penalties for absences may include failure in the course.
