Teaching

A new course, HORT 31900 Controlled Environment Production of Horticultural Crops will be taught from Spring 2018.  This course is taught on 2 days with a 2 hour lab during the week and total credits of 3.

 

If interested contact knemali@purdue.edu for details.

Additional information on the course:

This course combines production principles with environmental concepts and advances in technology to provide a comprehensive training in sustainable production of herbaceous ornamentals and vegetables in controlled environment systems. The laboratory instruction provides hands-on experience with the practice of growing crops under controlled environments by combining the learning from lectures with the use of technology to control environment during production.

Prerequisite: BIOL 11000 or BTNY 11000 or HORT 10100

Justification

This course is designed to provide undergraduate students with knowledge of the wide range of controlled environment production technologies used by the specialty crop industry. Lectures will focus on principles of production combined with environmental concepts and advances in technology while the labs will focus on practice of growing crops in controlled environments by measuring and controlling above and below ground environments. A companion course will focus on principles of production of horticultural crops under field conditions.

This course will replace courses previously taught: HORT 401 Horticulture Production Technology, HORT 422 Herb and Vegetable Production and the greenhouse crop portion of HORT 420 Ornamental Plant Production.
