The NEW 7th edition of Practices and Techniques in Horticulture has added some new exciting laboratory exercises as well as enhanced some of the previous activities. As students become more focused on the environment and sustainable plant production practices, we have evolved the book’s focus to include these issues.
Practices and Techniques in Horticulture is designed to be the first introduction to the plant sciences and may provide the experiential components for a course to meet the laboratory science requirements in some core curriculums.
Practices and Techniques in Horticulture features:
- learning objectives
- a list of needed materials is provided for the faculty.
- sufficient laboratory exercises that may be selected to provide a complete academic semester.
- review questions, work sheets and report instructions create the backbone to help set the tone for this general education laboratory science course.
