Monitor pest and beneficial organisms in floriculture and act at threshold levels






This unit standard is for people working in floriculture. People credited with this unit standard are able to: recognise named pests, diseases, and beneficial predatory or parasitic organisms; monitor organism numbers; and select agrichemicals to rectify an imbalance in the pest-to-predator or -parasite ratio.

Available grade


Explanatory notes
Workplace procedures mean work practice guidelines which meet the requirements of the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, other regulatory requirements, and their subsequent amendments.
Outcomes and evidence requirements
Outcome 1
Recognise named pests, diseases, and beneficial predatory or parasitic organisms.
Range at least four pests, four diseases, and three beneficial organisms pertinent to a floricultural crop familiar to the candidate.
Evidence requirements
1.1 Named pests that could affect a floriculture crop, and beneficial organisms that could predate or parasitise them are recognised at different stages of their life cycle.
1.2 The life cycles of pest and beneficial organisms of a floriculture crop are described.
Range four pests and two beneficial organisms.
1.3 Signs or symptoms of four diseases of a floriculture crop are recognised, and the diseases are named at different stages of its life cycle.
Outcome 2
Monitor organism numbers.
Evidence requirements
2.1 Random samples or leaves are examined, and specific species of pest and predator or parasite are counted and, as required by workplace procedures, it is reported when specific pest numbers are reached or the pest-to-predator or -parasite ratio slips beyond a stated point.
2.2 Pheromone or sticky traps are monitored and cleaned in accordance with workplace procedures, and it is recorded and reported when a threshold number of specific insects are caught.
2.3 Disease signs or symptoms are counted on random plants, and are reported when numbers reach a stated threshold level.
Outcome 3
Select agrichemicals to rectify an imbalance in the pest-to-predator or -parasite ratio.
Evidence requirements
3.1 Agrichemicals injurious to named beneficial insects are recognised, and alternatives, non injurious to beneficial insects, are identified.
3.2 Agrichemicals, application rates, and timing are identified to redress the balance between pests and parasites or predators, or to reduce any potential disease problem.

Please note

Providers must be granted consent to assess against standards (accredited) by NZQA, before they can report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.

Industry Training Organisations must be granted consent to assess against standards by NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.
Providers and Industry Training Organisations, which have been granted consent and which are assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.
Requirements for consent to assess and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this standard are outlined in the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR). The CMR also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
