CEAC organizes 9 week online training on Plant Physiology & Technology

This 9-week non-credit online course to be administrated through University of Arizona will offer students foundational information on the major greenhouse environmental factors affecting plant growth and development. The contents are equivalent to an upper college level course.



Students will understand interactions between plants and their microenvironments, including light penetration and CO2/H2O diffusion. Students will learn energy and mass balance of leaves, canopy, and greenhouse systems, and correlate these phenomena with plant productivity and related plant physiological mechanisms. Students will learn key micrometeorological principles. Lectures cover controlled environment technologies and practices of plant production in greenhouses and high tunnels.

The course will be offered during October 3–December 11, 2016 (9 weeks materials). The enrollment must be completed by September 26, 2016. Course fee: $628 per student.
