HYDROPONICS (A) Course - Online Enrolment Information

Hydroponics is a method of plant cultivation that does not require the use of soil. In its Philippine: P9950 PHP
place, plants are provided with a growing medium such as gravel, sand, or something
similar. They are then given a continual supply of nutrient solution, which produces Course Code: BHT224
healthier growth.
Duration: 100 hours
This course introduces you to a wide range of systems, simple and complex, and how to
grow many different types of horticulturally valuable crops, such as cut flowers and Qualification: Certificate
vegetables. This is a course for growers, farm workers, hydroponic shop staff, horticulturists Exam: Optional
or anyone else seeking to lay a sound foundation in hydroponic growing.
