HORT410 - Vegetable Crops
When: Spring Semester, First 5 weeks, MWF 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM
Where: HLA Room 210
Instructor: David Rhodes (Office HLA Room 114; Tel. 765-494-1312)
Students with disabilities : if you have a disability which requires some special accommodation, please make an appointment within the first 2 weeks of the semester for a visit to my office to discuss the appropriateness of the instructional methods
in this class, or any academic adjustments that you may need. I have found it possible to make accommodations in the past, but it is important that we talk about this at the beginning of the semester.
For each vegetable crop, we will attempt to consider the botany of the crop, its center of origin, history, and economic importance, optimum production practices for the crop, its major diseases, insect pests and unique nutritional requirements, the
major genes determining horticulturally important traits, plant breeding objectives for the crop, and potential applications of biotechnology in vegetable crop improvement.
