ENV 3250. Plant Cropping and Weed Management (3 credits)


This course will explore the differences between crops and cropping, cropping seasons, plant growth and development, and principles of sustainable weed management for croplands. It will define and discuss the different agronomic/field crops and the concepts of multiple cropping and intercropping as a sustainable method to maintain nutrient levels in the soil while increasing crop yield. Concurrently, it will emphasize sustainable cropping systems that prevent weed problems, rather than using quick-fix approaches. Alternatives to conventional tillage systems, including allelopathy, intercropping, crop rotations, and a weed-free cropping design. Does not fulfill a BIO elective. Lecture.
