Horticultural Science KLA610

Hobart

Note:

This unit is classed as a restricted unit and available to Master of Applied Science students.

Introduction

This unit provides students with a detailed understanding of key physiological processes underlying horticultural crop production and pre- and post-harvest management practices that are designed to provide products desired by the market.  The focus of the unit is on the physiology of plant growth regulation and the responses of plant regulatory systems to environmental and management factors. This will be explored through field and laboratory studies in order to underpin understanding of past and current production systems and enable insight into potential future systems. Students will be expected to develop consultant-type advice on how to address problems associated with production.

In addition to the general course content, students are expected to undertake advanced reading on recent developments in Horticulture and incorporate that knowledge in advanced analysis of assessed research activities as well as in the theory examination.
