PSCT501 RESEARCH TECHNIQUES IN AGRICULTURE 3 3 0
This course brings computing solution to traditional practices and modern cocerns, sowing seeds and planting seedlings for a sustainable, constant food supply. The food supply shortage has been main cocern and the biggest problem in under-developed countries. Modelling flood patterns and predicting potential climates and microclimates through distincly modern topics such as pesticide leaching model and the impact of agricultural policy. All of these topics in this particular course deal with utilization of cutting-edge computational techniques of interest to both academics and practitional in agriculture, as well as computitaonal modelling researches such as split-plot and split-blog techniques, creating a referance practical significance.
PSCT502 LABORATORY TECHNIQUES 3 1 4
The first section of the course will be on “General structure of an analysing laboratory; chemicals that might be found in a lab; cups and bottles that can be used in a lab; basic instruments of analysing labs. Second division will be on all about “Proper sampling, recording and conservation methods”. The evaluation methods will be explained in the third section depending on sensational characteristics (color, odor, taste, etc) following by colorimetric measurements, and also measuring hardness-softness-shear value; evaluation taste characteristics through taste tests and taste panels. In the next section, methods of chemical and or instrumental analysis of energy (calorimetric), protein, fats and oils, minerals, fiber (ADF;NDF), vitamins and toxins will be detailed. The next step will cover microbiological analysis, and classical, in-vitro, in-sacco digestion trials.

STAT502 STATISTICS 3 3 0
This course is designed to introduce basic statistical techniques necessary for carrying out a scientific research. It covers descriptive statistics and inferential statistics; variables and levels of measurement; measures of central tendency; display data by using graphs, charts, histograms, tables, etc.; a population and samples drawn from it; measures of variability of given data; the normal curve; the concept of probability in making statistical decisions; distributions of sample means; intervals for making statistical inference, hypothesis testing; correlation to detect relationships between and among phenomena; regression analysis; hypothesis testing to make statistical inference; tests (t-test) for the difference between the population means; the null hypothesis; analysis of variance (ANOVA), and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA); non-parametric techniques (chi-square test) for nominal data; other non-parametric techniques.

PSCT204 PRINCIPLES OF FRUIT GROWING 0 3 0
The students are governed with basic knowledge of fruit tree species and their propagation in this course. Physiological phases of fruit trees such as juvenile and mature stages, Site selection for orchard establishments, and the important criteria for the site selection. Selection of fruit species and cultivars according to ecological conditions. The appearance of roots, stems, leaves, flowers and fruits in fruit trees and their developments and interactions with environmental conditions (climate and soil) and generative and vegetative propagation methods in fruit trees, establishment of orchards, cultural practices in orchards (irrigation, fertilization, pruning, soil cultivation, weed control) are covered as basic knowledge in the orchards.
PSCT302 ORGANIC FARMING 0 3 0
The course includes the following topics; definition, aim and history of organic farming, advantages and disadvantages of organic farming, organic agriculture movements, principles of organic farming; the principal methods of organic farming. crop rotation, green manures, compost, biological pest control, and mechanical cultivation. Economics of organic farming, geographic distribution of organic farming and organic animal production: Origin of livestock, livestock feed.
