Field course in crop production

The course is to a large extent based on exercises in the field. At study visits at experimental and ordinary farms cultivation technique and crop sequences with special focus on cultivation measures during spring and early summer will be discussed. During field exercises, winter survival, establishment, development, growth and occurrence of weeds and pests are studied as well as the importance of crop sequences . Field trials are used for studies of experimental technique. The exercises include determination of cultivated plants, weeds, pests and their natural enemies as well as field and lab studies of developmental stages of cultivated plants. In lectures, connections between observations made in the field and scientific theory are discussed.

Compulsory components

Exercises, laboratory sessions, seminars and study visits are compulsory components.
