Plant Science (B.T.)


The B.T. degree program in Plant Science offers students excellent opportunities for highly relevant technical preparation for potential employment in agronomic, floricultural, and horticultural production, natural resource management and protection, environmental protection, recreational and sports area management, turfgrass management, golf course management, and landscape contracting. This broadly designed, flexible program allows students to select courses that provide a specific focus with a common foundation in applied sciences.

Plant Science student Samuel Nolan shows off his hydroponic lettuce experiment. Plant Science student Kylie Smith is busy harvesting “Geronimo” and “Rebelski” beefsteak tomatoes from the SUNY Cobleskill greenhouses. Plant Science student Kate Everitt harvests “Tyria” hydroponic cucumbers from the SUNY Cobleskill greenhouses.
Tomatoes are harvested from 100 hydroponically-grown greenhouse plants and sold through our online farmer’s market, Schoharie Fresh. With 16-foot side walls and 23-feet tall to the peak, things are really looking up at the new, state-of-the-art SUNY Cobleskill greenhouses. Plant Science student Kylie Smith attracts some attention and makes new friends with hydroponic oat fodder grown in the College greenhouses.
