Without green plants we would neither breathe nor eat. Of the billions of tons of food the world consumes each year, the bulk comes from agricultural plants, which synthesise it out of air and soil with the help of sunlight. The remainder comes from animal products, which in turn are derived from plants. In this unit the student will become familiar with the recognition, ecology and adaptation of a wide range of agriculturally important plants, including pasture, crop and weed species. In particular students' will learn how to identify these plants and to understand in what ways they are adapted to soils and the climatic environment. The principles of how these plants interact with one another will also be addressed.
The student is required to pass both the theory and practical components of this unit to pass the unit overall.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
