The Floriculture and Nursery Production Management Certificate offers a selection of courses focusing on floral and nursery crop production, including business management. Core courses provide a solid science background, enabling the student to gain a greater understanding of how ornamental and floral plants grow. This basic knowledge is then interwoven with practical cultural and production methods. This certificate is designed for nursery, greenhouse and garden center professionals; Extension educators, agents and specialists involved in horticulture-related programs; and K-12 science teachers.
The department is able to offer these three certificates as a member of the AG*IDEA Consortium.
