The Horticulture Department competed against the Ag Department in a friendly competition last Thursday. It was located in Benson 219. Students had researched and prepared videos and presentations for their Plant Science classes in both the Hort and Ag departments. The best of the best were asked to participate in the competition.
The topics presented ranged all over the green industries including:
AG - Are Bananas going Extinct? (3rd Place)
AG - Sugar Cane vs. Sugar Beets (2nd Place)
HORT - Sick Building Syndrome (1st Place)
HORT - Floral Scent Loss
AG - How to Improve Floral Scent
It was a fun night to learn more about the plants we have studied. The pizza was provided by Domino’s and the fun was provided by us! Thanks and great job guys!
Our aim for the Department of Horticulture at Brigham Young University-Idaho is to nurture understanding of both the art and science of Horticulture. Students learn experimentally in the classroom, laboratory, greenhouse, and ten acre Thomas E. Ricks demonstration garden as they pursue an Associates or Bachelors Degree. Using the medium of plants, students develop habits of hard work, enlightened minds, and healthy living that assist in gainful employment opportunitues.
