This unit is classed as a restricted unit and available to Master of Applied Science students.
The unit provides Master of Applied Science students with an overview of Australian horticultural and grain crop production and management. Study includes agroecological aspects of fruit, vegetable and grain crop production in Australia and the growth and development of the major crop species. Principles underlying canopy and nutrient management, flowering and fruit development, yield formation and post-harvest quality are examined. The practical component includes two experiments on seed germination and plant nutrition, plus a seminar. Students will also be expected to develop excellent laboratory record keeping and reporting skills.
In addition to general course content, students are expected to undertake prescribed reading at an advanced level on recent developments in crop production and to incorporate this knowledge in their theory examination.
