Registration is open for three grain operations courses from the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) and Kansas State University (K-State) Distance Education Program. These onlinecourses run from April 20-May 22, and registration closes Tuesday, April 14. Courses are open to anyone, even if they are not a GEAPS member or a student enrolled at K-State.
Another course focuses on managing grain quality. GEAPS 525: Management of Insect Pests in Stored Grain gives participants the skills to prevent and manage insect infestations using practical chemical and nonchemical methods. Lessons chronicle the most common types of insects associated with stored grain, pest management concepts including preventive and responsive tactics, and proper use of protectants and fumigants.
GEAPS 510 is one of six courses required for the Credential in Grain Operations Management, and GEAPS 525 and GEAPS 545 are both required for Specialist Credentials. More information on the Credential Program, including the courses required for each Specialist Credential, is available on the GEAPS website.
