Turf and Lawn Management: A Course in Agricultural Education. Curriculum Guide. Preliminary Draft.
Mercer, R. J., Ed.
The curriculum guide (preliminary draft) is a result of the revision of the total South Carolina agricultural education curriculum; the scope of the turf and lawn management industry and its direct and indirect employment opportunities provide ample reasons for such a course offering in South Carolina high schools. The guide presents objectives, learning activities, topics, and resources related to specific units and subunits. Basic supportive units cover turfgrass and weed identification, turfgrass mechanics, pest control, soils and fertilizers, and use of a transit. Broad functional units included are the maintenance and establishment of home lawns, golf courses, athletic fields, institutional and industrial grounds, and highway roadsides. The guide is designed as a one-year course; however, it is adaptable as a two-year course by expanding units. (EA)
