9780136185543: Sustainable Horticulture: Today and Tomorrow

For one or two semester courses in Horticulture, Horticultural Science, or Plant Science.

This comprehensive introduction to the emerging discipline of sustainable horticulture provides students with the foundations of horticultural science that underlie all forms of horticulture—from conventional through sustainable to organic. The practice of sustainable horticulture is designed to preserve agricultural resources and to prevent environmental damage to the farm and offsite land, water, and air. Production, profits, and incentives must remain at optimal levels, and the system must function in the context of socioeconomic realities. This text leads students through these practices and production, and provides the necessary information to support a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly horticulture.

From the Back Cover:

Presenting a new paradigm, Sustainable Horticulture: Today and Tomorrow offers the reader a contemporary approach for horticultural production. The text guides the reader through horticulture as it undergoes the transformation from non-sustainability to sustainability. It provides a logical progression, moving from basic horticultural science to sustainable horticultural practices, and finally to crops and their cultivation.

FEATURES
  • Includes the latest published research on sustainable ways to produce horticultural crops
  • Balanced coverage—provides a national approach to practices and horticultural crops
  • Learning tools—each chapter lists learning objectives and key topics to be covered, as well as Internet sites for more in-depth exploration
  • Comprehensive but flexible—the book is divided into four sections, providing sufficient material for a two-semester course on sustainable horticulture
