Introduction to Agronomy

A course designed to teach you the foundations of crop and pasture agronomy

Enrol now

If you’ve ever gone to a farmer field day and some of the information has gone over your head, you’re not alone.

There is a lot of assumed knowledge in the agricultural industry and not all farmers have had the benefit of agronomy training.

 

Who is it for?

Farmers of all ages, genders and abilities, however it is best suited to the young to middle age farmer or agricultural industry worker who has not received formal agronomy training.



Family members encouraged


We encourage family members to do this program together where possible. This course is not just for the guys! Ladies, we would love for you to join us, either with your partner or on your own if you feel that you need to learn a little more about agronomy and your farming system.


We've flipped the classroom

You will do most of the learning by watching videos on your computer or tablet at home with two Q & A webinars along the way. Take this course at any time of the year that suits you or join us for a live course that runs over four weeks with 12 video modules of 10 to 20 minutes duration each.

The next 'live' course starts on 8 Feb 2021.

Workshop curriculum

The course has been developed by our Planfarm agronomists, using their wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure that the most important aspects of agronomy are covered.

At the end of this program you will not be an agronomist, but you will have a much deeper understanding of the science behind what you are seeing in the field.
