Written by two dynamic agriculture educators who believe in learning by doing, Horticulture Today inspires students to develop an appreciation for the diversity of horticulture and participate in work-based learning, with numerous tools to plan their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). The text provides a contemporary overview of the horticulture industry, including leadership, communication, and business skills, plus thorough coverage of plant science, step-by-step horticultural practices, landscape design and maintenance, and integrated pest management. Abundant STEM Connections emphasize extra practice with mathematical and scientific strategies in horticulture, while hydroponics, aquaponics, and rooftop gardens are included as modern technologies that can be replicated within the classroom. This edition aligns to multiple industry-recognized credentials students can earn after a single course in their Plant Science pathway.
