Aims, contents and method of the course

In this practical class main emphasis is placed on theoretical background (plant physiological, ecological context) and practical application (horticultural techniques) in the following fields:
Germination physiology and allelopathy, plant breeding and cultivation, working mechanisms of phytoeffectors, knowledge and cultivation of indoor and outdoor plants and an excursion to an
agricultural plant / factory.
The course deals with plant physiological principles and methods used in nurseries and horticulture. Practical examples are conducted in small groups, results are evaluated and presented.
Excursions impart further knowledge.
Many of the practical examples can be implemented at school.
