The aim of the course:
The course aims to provide the students with a general knowledge on standardization of seedling, and to provide high quality seedlings used in all kinds of plantings and especially in afforestration works.
 
Programme OutcomesCTPOTOA
Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
PO - 1 : summarise the definition and composition of standardization of seedlings.1,3,41
PO - 2 : describe the seedlings characterizing and explain its relation to artificial regeneration and afforestrations1,3,41,3
PO - 3 : apply various techniques at different region of Turkey afforestration areas1,3,45
PO - 4 : present before an audience the results and projects of any exercise1,3,41,5
CTPO : Contribution to programme outcomes, TOA :Type of assessment (1: written exam, 2: Oral exam, 3: Homework assignment, 4: Laboratory exercise/exam, 5: Seminar / presentation, 6: Term paper), PO : Learning Outcome
