This online cannabis course provides an in depth investigation of hemp as an agronomic and horticultural crop. Agronomic principles pertaining to industrial hemp as a field crop are explored, including the cultivation, management, and harvesting of hemp for fiber and seed production. Growing hemp under controlled environments for flower production will also be discussed. Cultivation practices including irrigation, fertilization, integrated pest management (IPM), air circulation, and light control are examined for optimal crop quality and yield. After completion of this online cannabis course, students will be able to differentiate hemp cultivation practices according to primary harvestable product(s) (flower, seed, fiber, etc.) Students will be able to describe procedures for soil testing, determine the necessary soil amendments, identify common pests, design an integrated pest management plan and explain procedures for harvesting and storing hemp.
