Plant Biosciences Specialization
Greenhouse laboratory course associated with the concurrent lecture course on Hydroponic Crop Production (HCS 4300 In-person or Online) will provide hands-on practices on greenhouse hydroponic crop production – leafy crops, micro-greens, tomato, and more using crop production facilities similar to commercial production settings.
This course will offer students the foundational understanding of the greenhouse food crop production technologies and practices and introduction to the science behind them. Lectures will overview the history and basic principles of greenhouse crop production using soilless (hydroponics) approach. Students will learn conventional/advanced production technologies and more.
