Mathematics for the Green Industry
Essential Calculations for Horticulture and Landscape Professionals
by Michael L. Agnew

Mathematics for the Green Industry offers full coverage of the calculations necessary to effectively, safely, and economically manage a Green Industry operation.

The authors provide clear explanations of all relevant mathematical principles and cover calculations inherent in all aspects of the Green Industry, from determining area and volume, to the application of fertilizers, pesticides, and growth regulators, to preparing design and installation cost estimates.

Coverage includes computations for:

• Landscape installation and maintenance
• Greenhouse, nursery, and interior landscape operation
• Parks and recreation maintenance
• Turf management, including lawn care, sports turf, and sod production
• Proper application of fertilizers, pesticides, and plant-growth regulators
• Proper calibration of application equipment

Additional features include multiple computations the reader can work through, appendices with units of measure and equivalents, and a table with conversion factors.
