Our two-part course, Organic Farming: Principles and Practice, is designed to provide farmers with a strong background in soils, weeds and pest management, enabling them to make good management decisions.
It is geared for those who are looking to gain a greater understanding of the biology and ecology behind better soil, pest and disease management, weed management and hence better crops and healthier livestock.
