Description: Participation in a turfgrass or landscape management enterprise (other than in one of those in which the student has had previous experience).
Description: Introduction to a diverse range of plant and landscape systems and management strategies for balancing economic and environmental sustainability. Foundational principles of plant biology, landscape ecology, and environmental science using real-world case studies.
Description: Introduction to careers, internships and co-curricular activities in turfgrass and landscape management.
Prerequisites: Prior or concurrent enrollment in AGRO/HORT 131 required
Description: An exploration of plant morphology, physiology, and maturation with an emphasis on environmental, biotic, and human interactions within production and landscape systems. Not open to Agronomy or Horticulture majors or minors.
Prerequisites: 3 hrs biological sciences
Description: Discovery of the biology of genes and the application of genetics principles to understand the control and inheritance of traits in families and populations. Focus is on animals and plants that are important in medicine, agriculture and nature. Learning emphasis is problem solving via online, instant feedback assessments, group discussion, experimental data analysis and context-based exams.
Prerequisites: AGRO 131 or BIOS 109
Uses a team approach to problem solving, discussion, assessment planning, and oral presentations of applied case studies.
Description: An overview of landscape management and landscape design. Principles and practices.
Description: Laboratory covering turfgrass identification and management. Concurrent enrollment with AGRO/HORT/TLMT 227 preferred. Required for Turfgrass Science majors, other students require instructor consent.
Prerequisites: Sophomore standing; TLMT/AGRO/HORT/PGAM 227 or 228.
Requires advanced permission before registering for the course. Written and oral reports are required at the completion of the internship. Pass/No Pass only.
Description: Participation in a turfgrass or landscape management enterprise other than one in which the student has had previous experience.
Description: Using processes and problem-solving approach to identify and analyze common landscape management situations in commercial, public, and residential landscapes. Integrate design, environment, function, pest and disease, and existing management practices to produce recommendations.
Description: Why, when and how to prune ornamental landscape plants. Demonstrations and field opportunities on how to choose and how to use pruning tools correctly.
Description: Explore sustainability challenges in plant and animal agricultural systems, assess current solutions, and identify opportunities for innovation. Research, develop, prototype, test, and pitch an innovative product, service, or technology for agriculture.
Description: Participation in a turfgrass or landscape management enterprise other than one in which the student has had previous experience. Written and oral reports are required at the completion of the career experience.
Prerequisites: BIOS/PLPT 369 or one semester of introductory plant pathology.
Description: Pathogens, epidemiology, and control of diseases specific to turfgrass.
Prerequisites: AGRO/HORT/PGMP/TLMT 326.
Description: Using processes and strategies to identify and compare issues, make recommendations, demonstrate proficiency in field application as skills and techniques, and prepare cost estimates in the development of landscape management plans.
