The goal of the MG Core Course is to make you a well-rounded horticulturist. You will learn about plant selection, botany, tree care, soils, entomology, plant diseases, and turf, as well as fruit and vegetable production in the Great Plains. In the end, we hope that you will be able to troubleshoot common plant problems and select plants appropriate for the landscape. Three or four topics will be covered each week. Participants will watch the lecture in person, via webinar technology, or recorded lecture. After the lecture, students will read the assigned chapters in the manual, take the open book quiz, and complete any surveys. All assignments must be completed by April 6, 2018.
