A 14-min video highlighting careers in turfgrass management (“Turfgrass Management: Your Field of Dreams”) was developed as a recruiting tool for colleges and universities. The intended audiences are high school students, parents, and members of the industry. The project was funded by commercial sponsors, and the video was produced at the Univ. of Illinois. The tape has received excellent reviews from instructors in turfgrass management and has been credited with increasing interest in their programs.
Writing in horticulture courses helps students develop a better understanding of the subject matter and prepares them for careers where they must communicate with the general public. Three writing assignments that can be modified for use in a wide range of horticulture courses are presented, along with grading sheets. The writing assignments simulate situations that horticulturists encounter frequently; i.e., answering questions about plant materials and their utilization and maintenance or proposing site improvements or additional expenditures for maintenance programs.
