Why this course?

Demand for organic produce has boomed over recent years, and supermarkets from Australia to England now devote significant shelf space to organic produce, and organic certification schemes have emerged and flourished.

Organic farming works with nature, rather than against it. It recognises the fact that nature has many complex processes which interact to control pests, diseases and weeds, and to regulate the growth of plants.

Sustainability in Agriculture has become increasingly important in recent times. It is no longer sufficient to just be productive, and the cost of production is no longer just thought of in terms of money. The environmental resources of a farm, as well as the financial, must not deteriorate if a farm is to continue to exist into the future.

Being one of the more comprehensive and specific Organic Farming and Sustainable Agriculture courses online, this course has been specifically designed from the ground up by industry professionals to put you in good stead to develop a strong foundation of the industry and elevate your expertise above others looking for entry-level employment in this highly competitive industry.
