AGPS 2113 - Field & Forage Crops, 3 Credits

Level: Lower

The course will combine fundamental knowledge of field crop physiology with practical training in crop production. Crop interactions with other organisms, both beneficial and deleterious (pests), will be studied. Management of synthetic inputs will be included in this course. Emphasis will be given to cultural (or biological) crop management strategies that reduce input costs in crop production and reduce fluctuations (risks) to crop performance and the environment.
