A continued increase in world population along with climate change could slowly but surely deteriorate agricultural productivity and result in global food shortage. As such, demands for the integrated pest management for plant health will continue to rise in the future. Safe and effective use of pesticides recommended by well-trained professionals is critical for the integrated pest management in modern agriculture. The PMGAP program at NCHU was founded in 2014. Through complete training, students will have all-around skills and knowledge to prepare for their professions in agriculture. The program may enhance global competition in all areas of agricultural production. Students that successfully complete their training could enhance global competition in all areas of agricultural production in general and greatly elevate the quality of pest management in particular. Establishing plant clinical professionals, passing laws for the requirement of certification and plant physician licenses along with the establishment of a professional prescription system will be imperative for advancing agricultural production in the future.
