The newly revised Category 3 Ornamental and Turfgrass Manual, covers the plant pathogens, insects and mites, weeds, and vertebrates common in Iowa’s ornamental and turfgrass settings, and the various strategies used in managing these pests. The manual was written with full input from subject matter experts across Iowa. Complete with four-color pictures and detailed pest information, this descriptive work will not only assist persons in preparing to take the Category 3T (Turfgrass), 3OT (Ornamental and Turfgrass), or 3O (Ornamental) certification examination(s), but will also serve as a reference for applicators and industry support personnel.
This category manual supplements information in the
Iowa Core Manual, CS 0445
, and should not be used for certification preparation without referring to that manual.

The modules are designed to assist you in understanding the material covered in the manual. The review modules contain the learning objectives from each chapter of the manual, knowledge check and learning activities, and a practice quiz.
Note: The previous Category 3 manual included Greenhouse Pest Management. This material was considered distinctly different from Ornamental and Turfgrass pests.
- Category 3 G, Greenhouse Pest Management was developed as a separate manual and is now available for purchase.
