Advertisment

This nine-week, non-credit online course will offer students foundational information on the major greenhouse environmental factors affecting plant growth and development. The contents are equivalent to an upper college level course.

Students will understand interactions between plants and their microenvironments, including light penetration and CO2/H2O diffusion. Students will learn energy and mass balance of leaves and canopy and correlate these phenomena with plant productivity and related plant physiological mechanisms.

Students will learn key micrometeorological principles.

Lectures cover controlled environment technologies and practices of plant production in greenhouses and high tunnels.

The course begins Jan. 14 and concludes March 16. The enrolment deadline is Jan. 7.
