Description

Introduces students to the art and science of field crop scouting. Through lecture and field training, students will become familiar with the techniques necessary to assess soil characteristics and variability, to identify and quantify crop pests (weeds, disease, insects) and herbicide injury/control symptoms, to identify plant nutrient deficiencies and symptoms of abiotic stresses and to suggest potential methods of remediation. Students will also discuss ethical behaviour and professionalism as it applies to field scouting and the practice of agrology. However, students are required to attend classes in Saskatoon for four non-consecutive days in the summer.

Prerequisite(s): PLSC 201 or PLSC 222 and SLSC 240
Note: Offered in Summer Term two. Students with credit for AGRN 82 or AGRN 382 will not receive credit for this course. There are additional non-refundable costs in addition to tuition fees.

Syllabi

The syllabus is a public document that provides detail about a class, such as the schedule of activities, learning outcomes, and weighting of assignments and examinations. Please note that the examples provided below do not represent a complete set of current or previous syllabus material. Rather, they are presented solely for the purpose of indicating what may be required for a given class.

It is recommended that students also have online access to syllabi prior to the beginning of the class. After submission to the department head, or dean in non-departmentalized colleges, syllabi should be posted on Blackboard and/or publically accessible departmental or other websites. Instructors who post their syllabus on publically accessible websites may wish to redact certain information that is not related to the core instruction of the class (e.g. personal contact information, names and contact information for teaching assistants, material protected under copyright, etc.).

Once an instructor has made their syllabus publicly available on Blackboard, it will appear below. For more information about syllabi, visit the Academic Courses Policy.
