Course RRP is $880 per person, and using the Planfarm 50 percent discount brings the cost down to $440.

Background

This offer is in response recent GGA annual Capacity Building Survey which showed groups are seeking support for agronomy training for their staff.

As an established learning platform, the Planfarm Academy courses come highly recommended within the WA agriculture industry. The Agronomy of Farming Short Course is ideal for those with no formal agricultural or science training.

Curriculum – 3 hours

Taking approximately three hours to complete, the video module component of the course is made up of 12 self-paced modules of 20 mins each. The independent learning modules are supplemented with recordings of past ‘tutorial’ style discussion sessions designed to review the material and address any knowledge gaps.

Discussion Session – August 7

There is no rush to complete the three hours of course content. However, those that complete it by early August will benefit greatly from the next live discussion session delivered by Planfarm on August 7. So complete your online modules by then to participate in this live session for the current cohort of those undertaking the curriculum.

Recordings of past discussion sessions are available should you miss the live one.

Who is it for?

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. 

Whilst designed for people with no formal training in agronomy, fully qualified, practicing agronomists have also taken the course and loved it. The course will provide a greater understanding of broadacre farming agronomy delivered by experienced agronomists.
