Classes

    Pls502 - Ecology of Economic Plants; Credits - 3
    Study of the physical environment (radiation, temperature, precipitation, and evapotranspiration) in which crops are grown and the effect of the environment on crop growth and yield. Both micro- and macro-climatic relationships are considered. .
    Instructors: Dennis B. Egli
    Pls602 - Principles of Yield PHysiology; Credits - 3
    Critical study of the physiological factors and processes involved in determining economic yield in grain crops. The focus will be on factors operating at the whole plant and plant community level as opposed to physiological processes at the cellular or subcellular level. A logical, analytical description of the process of economic yield production by grain crops will be developed and related to historical changes in crop yields and the potential for increasing yields in the future. Prereq: PLS 386 and BIO 430G or consent of instructor. .
    Instructors: Dennis B. Egli
