The Agriculture Essentials program aims to prepare students to develop basic skills in horticulture production to maintain crops from the beginning to the end of the production cycle. The program consists of an overview of the plant kingdom with the plant's
anatomy, functions, and plant nutrition with the ability to recognize anomalies and apply the correct measures. Students will learn the effect of environmental conditions on water transport, photosynthesis, and respiration to ultimately select the
proper parameters to optimize plant growth.
Students will have the opportunity to enter a 6-week work experience following the completion of their program.
