HORT 221: Principles of Horticulture Science
(2-2) Cr. 3. F.S.
Prereq: BIOL 211 or concurrent enrollment
Biological principles of growing horticultural crops including anatomy, reproduction, light, temperature, water, nutrition, and growth and development. Laboratory exercises emphasize environmental factors and permit detailed observation of plant growth.
To meet the educational needs of a student population with interests ranging from plant physiology to landscape design/installation to fruit and vegetable production to golf course/athletic field construction and management, considerable flexibility is built into the horticulture curriculum. The diversity of interests and need for flexibility are reflected in the impressive array of horticulture courses offered.
