Hydroponic gardening is a great way to grow high-performance plants… if you know the basics! This class covers everything you need to know for successful hydroponic crop production, including: water quality management, hydroponic nutrients, pH, EC, hydroponic growing media, and hydroponic system design and maintenance.
Plants need 17 essential elements to grow and reproduce. By giving the plant exactly what it needs, when it needs it, it is possible to help the plant reach its true genetic potential. In this class, you will learn how to “spoon feed” your plants with specific elements. Learn how to steer the crop, diagnose and treat nutrient deficiencies, and use leaf and nutrient analyses to fine tune your feeding schedule.
Base nutrients provide all of the essential elements that plants need, but organic bio-stimulants help with the uptake of nutrients. This class will teach you how to use organic bio-stimulants to improve the nutritional and medicinal value of plants, while increasing the plant’s natural resistance to stress, pests and disease. Even advanced growers will benefit from this in-depth class.
Microbial inoculants are the next frontier in plant nutrition. For millions of years, plants and microorganisms have worked together to help each other thrive. Plants provide carbon compounds for microbes, and microbes provide nutrients and plant protection agents for plants. Learn the secrets of the unseen world of the rhizosphere and learn how to better harness the power of nature!
Have you ever wondered how professional growers maximize yields? This 2-Part series will show how the pro’s drive high production using computer environmental controls, advanced light recipes, carbon dioxide supplementation and precision irrigation and nutrient dosing. Learn how to dial in your grow room environment for maximum yields!
Natural Pest Control
Healthy plants are naturally resistant to pests and disease, but sometimes problems pop up in even the most well-managed gardens. This class will show you how to diagnose and treat problems if they occur. You will learn strategies to fight common pests and diseases such as spider mites, aphids, thrips, powdery mildew and fungi. Emphasis is placed on natural alternatives to chemical pesticides and fungicides.
Question and Answer Session
Ready to test your knowledge? After each class, we will go over a list of test questions to help expand and reinforce what you’ve learned in the Master Growers Short Course. The session is interactive, so it’s a great chance to get all of your questions answered and prepare for the final exam. You won’t want to miss it!
