Oregon State University is offering an online course (CROP 460/560) in seed production starting in September 2016. This course is the online version of OSU’s long running seed production course but is now being made available to a wider audience via OSU’s Ecampus electronic delivery program.
The Ecampus seed production course has been developed in cooperation with Alyssa DuVal, a colleague and former graduate student in OSU’s Department of Crop and Soil Science. The course is split into two units – the first addresses seed production as a genetic delivery system, biological principles of seed production, seed production economics, seed conditioning, and other topics. The second unit covers management practices and methodologies for producing a variety of seed crops ranging from grasses and forage legumes to vegetables and native plants.
The seed production course is open to both undergraduate (CROP 460) and graduate (CROP 560) students. The course runs from September through December 2016.
