sustainability through science & innovation

training & education

cesar is a reputable provider of education and training in agricultural entomology.

We develop and deliver customised training workshops, industry presentations and educational resources, focusing on up-skilling people working in agriculture.

Our goal is to share our knowledge and scientific expertise to encourage wider adoption of more sustainable and effective approaches to crop and pest management.

 training workshops

cesar delivers interactive insect identification training and integrated pest management (IPM) workshops.

They are delivered by people with an expertise in entomology, agriculture, insect genetics, and a passion for sustainable pest management.

The workshops can be adapted according to crop type and region, and are tailored to suit the needs of the audience. We have trained numerous farm advisers, growers, government department personnel and researchers.

Available workshop modules include:

- Identifcation: aphids, mites, caterpillars, beetles, and beneficial insects

- How to monitor crops effectively

- IPM goals, practices and where to start

- Biosecurity threats
