Agricultural Entomology and Pest Control belongs to plant protection, mainly develops senior agricultural technical personnel who can be engaged in the classification and identification, occurrence law and prediction, forecast of plant protection and pest with the risks, plant quarantine and comprehensive control of pest . Face directly to the production practice, to provide theoretical basis and practical technology for the guidance of the integrated control of main crop pests, the utilization of resources and the production of non pollution agricultural production.
