Skrócony opis:

This course covers all aspects of fruit trees and small fruit production and the most important field vegetable crops. Moreover, the course provides an understanding of modern greenhouse technology and its application to horticulture plants with emphasis on soilless culture technology. The course presents methods of hydroponically producing vegetables (tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, red pepper).

1. Principles of generative and vegetative propagation of ornamental plants

2. Cultivation and maintenance measures: planting and Re-planting, watering, shading and fertilization.

Iv. Soilless culture technology

1. Water quality. Assessment of pH values, EC (electrical conductivity measures), an alkalinity of the water

2. Acidification of water. Assessing the quantity of acid required by plotting a graph of the effect of addition of acid on the pH of the water sample

3. Greenhouse plants nutrient requirements. Estimation of appropriate nutrient solutions at different growth stages of plant plants.

Field trip (5hrs):

The commercial greenhouse production. The excursion to Krzeszowice and Bory Malinowskie.

Recognizing the organs of vegetative propagation in greenhouse and ground ornamental plants: annual, biennials and perennials, and plants propagated by seedlings
