Fundamental principals of hydroponic plant growth. This course covers cellular/ molecular biology as applicable to plant growth, plant physiology, nutrient requirements and biochemical nutrient uptake activities. Soil components, properties, microbiology and nutrient dynamics in soil systems are studied to understand hydroponic plant growth and production. Other topics include water quality parameters such as pH and electrical conductivity (EC) and their relationship to nutrient availability. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to create custom nutrient solutions from mineral salts, and have practical experience growing hydroponic plants.
