PhD Horticulture

Horticulture is a sub-discipline of agriculture. Horticulture literally translates to "garden culture." The phrase has, however, taken on a larger meaning. Horticulture encompasses the cultivation and application of plants for food, comfort, and aesthetic purposes.
Horticulture and science share a close link. Botany is the science most closely related with gardening. Botany is the science that studies plants and their processes. Horticulture science is the branch of science concerned with the cultivation of horticultural plants.
The horticultural business makes extensive use of science. Horticulture technology is the application of science to horticulture. It needs more than simply regular watering to successfully raise horticulture plants. To achieve maximum plant development, time, patience, and a thorough grasp of several scientific processes are required.
