Plant Physiology in one week

Planten in kwekerij - Plant physiology in one week

There is a trend towards doing more with less. We have ever-growing expectations for our crops: more yield, higher quality, but with lower inputs. Having sufficient knowledge of the functioning of plants and thus of plant physiology is essential for optimum crop management.

About this course

This study programme addresses the various aspects of plant physiology. Plant physiology deals with the functioning of plants and how they react to changes in environmental factors such as light, water and soil. After the course the participants have enough knowledge of the functioning of the plant and plant physiology to be able to control better, to monitor and if necessary adjust or redirect the growth/crop in order to get optimal yield results.

Course content

This study programme will give you the knowledge and insights into plant physiology that you need to enable you to make informed choices when you are optimising the cultivation process. We will teach you the theory that you will subsequently prove in practice, for instance together with your fellow students during lecturer-led group discussions. Practical sessions are also part of the study programme. By trying out the theory on your own crop and those of your fellow course members during the teaching periods, we ensure that we can tailor the study programme in the best way possible for your own situation in practice.

The course consists of 5 modules:

  1. Photosynthesis
  2. Water management
  3. Respiration & hormones
  4. Plant cells and DNA
  5. Soil and plant nutrition

For who?

This study programme has been set up for anyone who has to deal with plant production and who wants to gain further knowledge of plant physiology, e.g. horticultural entrepreneurs, cultivation/crop managers/specialists, (head) growers and crop production employees. The language of the course is English.

Course duration

The course consists of four days in one week. Course days are from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm:

Day 1: Monday May 9
Day 2: Tuesday May 10
Day 3: Wednesday May 11
Day 4: Thursday May 12


This course is taught at higher professional (HBO) undergraduate level. Participants should therefore have a minimum of upper secondary vocational level (MBO) or equivalent.


If you have completed all the courses, you will receive the certificate in Plant Physiology from HAS University of Applied Sciences Knowledge Transfer and Consultancy.
