Abstract

Currently there seems to be a trend throughout this country’s academic institutions for courses and curricula to become “more relevant,” “more applicable,” or “more practical.” Hopefully this will be a cyclic phenomenon and with some luck this training episode will end and institutions will be able to pursue educational concepts again. My concern is that horticulture appears to be so involved in training that the professional quality of some of our graduates has deteriorated. My intention is not to deny that applied ideas and concepts are of major importance to horticulture, but to emphasize that basic scientific principles are equally important and in my judgment actually more practical over the duration of an individual’s professional career.
