The graduate students in Seed Production and Nursery Management will have knowledge and expertise in agronomy phytopatology, biotechnology, economic and regulatory aspects, and marketing, together with practical experience gained in private companies, public institutions, laboratories, or professional orders involved directly in the graduate course. The main areas of work for graduate students are consultancy and management of plant and seed production in companies or as freelancers; certification of quality of plant and seed production; constitution, registration and protection of new varieties, and marketing activity in nursery production.
