I did not study as much as I should have for the first test. Hey it has been many years since I took an academic test! There was so much material! It became a guessing game to figure out what would be on the test. I guessed some material, but missed some, especially in the area of soils. I will know the outcome Thursday!
In addition to the test we had a lecture on Floriculture in Hawaii. Did you know that the anthurium industry in Hawaii was almost wiped out by a bacterial blight? There is no cure for this blight except for good sanitation practices. So millions of plants were destroyed to regain the health of the commercial industry. Today, strict sanitation procedures are practiced during propagation and in the fields.
