IN A FLASH: Pipes for Planting

Hydroponics (a way of growing crops without soil) is one of the topics that students at Kent State University at Salem study - and have opportunities to apply in the on-campus greenhouses and gardens - as part of their Horticulture Technology program. 

Plants will be inserted into these pipes roots first, where they will receive water and nutrients through misting. 

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Horticulture Technology prepares students for careers in landscape management, turf management, urban forestry, nursery and greenhouse operations and related horticultural professions. The degree program articulates with Kent State's Bachelor of Applied Horticulture degree.

Kent State University at Salem and the university's other regional campuses offer bachelor's degree, associate degree and certificate programs designed to meet the needs of the communities they serve.
