Applied Crop Physiology

when 19 August 2013 - 23 August 2013
duration 1 week
credits 5 ECTS

There are numerous methods to measure plant reaction to the surrounding climate. The objective of the course is to combine theory and hands on training using state of art equipment for measuring photosynthesis, stress and plant growth. This allows students to obtain skills in how to perform and plan plant experiments in the field or in greenhouse and what kind of pitfalls and challenges that one might experience.
