AGRI 120 - Crop Production

This course aims to provide information regarding the general principles of crop production and management practices. It will also cover the diverse techniques and practices that exist in crop production, insights of crop domestication, growth, and development, plant classification, nutrition, health, propagation techniques and production systems. 

 

AGRI 120L - Crop Production Lab

This laboratory course is structured to incorporate experiments representative of materials being covered in AGRI 120. It offers an opportunity for students to experience the technical concepts taught in class because it acts as a hands-on supplement to class lectures. It is especially useful for those people who learn via psychomotor or tactile activities. This laboratory course is geared towards enhancing students’ skills in the field. 

AGRI 121 - Plant Physiology and Propagation

An introduction to the field of plant biology, sexual and asexual propagation in plants, planting methodologies (cutting, layering, budding, grafting, micro-propagation and propagation by seeds), the metabolic processes of plants (photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration, and translocation), plant nutrition and the phenomenon of seed dormancy.
