PROGRAMME AT A GLANCE:

Crop Management: Successful agricultural crop production demands a wide range of practical skills and related knowledge. This unit develops the skills and knowledge needed for crop establishment and growth, crop protection, harvesting and storage.

Livestock Management: It focuses on developing a range of practical skills and studying their underlying principles to enable students to work competently within a broad range of livestock production systems. The unit covers the main aspects involved in any livestock production system including breed selection, animal husbandry, breeding, feeding, health and welfare. It covers the common farm mammalian species, focusing on the importance of breeding and animal health together with the underlying principles involved, as well as interpreting information on the selection of breeding stock.

Business Management: This unit will allow the student to explore a range of businesses involved in producing goods and services, and investigate how a range of physical and human resources are necessary for successful business operation and how their management can result in improved business performance. Students will also understand how record keeping, both financial and physical, is a vital function for the management and control of a business.

Additional Activities: Students will obtain experience of operating a range of machinery used in agriculture. This additional work will enable students to understand which machines are commonly used, and learn how to operate and service them.
