PLSCS 3210 - Soil and Crop Management for Sustainability


(CU-SBY)     
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: PLSCS 1900 .

J. Lehmann, M. Ryan, J. Thies, H. van Es.

Students learn about agronomy and recent advances in sustainable soil and crop management, and gain a lot of practical farming knowledge. Integrated perspectives on the physical, biological, and chemical aspects of soil management in the broader context of agroecosystems are explored. Soil and crop management practices and resulting interactions between soil, water, organisms, and organic and chemical inputs form the basis for discussions on diverse cropping systems, soil health, water quality and quantity, bioenergy, greenhouse gases, and sustainability. Lab sessions elaborate through case studies, hands-on activities, and discussion of current topics.
