Minor in Plant Science - Greenhouse and Floriculture Crop Management (A) HORT 2010   Greenhouse and Floriculture Crop Management (A)
CREDIT HOURS: 3
Greenhouse and floriculture crop production is one of the most exacting specialties in the many areas of agriculture. It is the only type of crop production where almost complete control of plant growth is achieved with the modification of environmental conditions. This is obtained through atmosphere modification (increasing CO2 levels); temperature control; control of light, nutrition, and water; the application of growth-modifying chemical regulators; and pest control. Greenhouse management can therefore be one of the most interesting and intriguing of the agricultural sciences. This course will examine the greenhouse, its environment, and the production of crops in this environment, plus outdoor cut-flower production.
