Now through June 13, 2020, you can sign up for the new Abiotic Disorders of Greenhouse Crops course and three other greenhouse courses: Greenhouse and Horticultural Lighting, Biological Control for Greenhouse Growers, and Floriculture Root Zone Management.
Greenhouse growers that are new to the industry or those that are interested in brushing up on their knowledge can now sign up for the summer sessions of four self-paced courses in Michigan State University Extension’s Online College of Knowledge greenhouse series: Abiotic Disorders of Greenhouse Crops, Greenhouse and Horticultural Lighting, Biological Control for Greenhouse Growers and Floriculture Root Zone Management. This award-winning series serves as an excellent resource for greenhouse growers new to the industry or those who want to learn more about other areas of greenhouse crop production or pest management.
These non-credit courses in the series are pre-recorded and registrants have three months to complete the courses: June 1 through Aug. 31, 2020. Students in the course will take a pre-test and a final exam to gauge their learning on the topics. Registrants also can complete the optional self-assessment quizzes to engage with the material throughout the course. Each course is $129.
There are three scholarships for each of the courses for those interested but do not currently have the financial means to take it. The cost of the course will be reduced to $39.99 for scholarship winners. Registration for all courses ends June 13, 2020.
