Fundamentals in Applied Agronomy - Crop Management
Fundamentals in Applied Agronomy—Crop Management is an introductory crops and soils course designed for the practitioner hoping to build their knowledge and skills in the topics that are most needed for a Certified Crop Adviser. Topics include an overview of major world and U.S. crops, cropping systems, seed quality considerations, hybrid and variety selection, planting practices, crop growth, development, and diagnostics, precision farming, harvest, storage, and managing production risk, among many others. The course is taught using distance education technology, but a variety of practical examples and case situations will be woven into content delivery to maximize understanding and its application in the field. Whether you are personally involved in production agriculture, advising farmers as an agricultural retailer or consultant, a representative for an agricultural business or government agency, or just looking to build your expertise, this course will cover topics that should be of direct interest to you. While this course is not designed to teach a student how to take the Certified Crop Adviser exams or to cover all the topics included in local or International performance objectives, it will complement an individual’s preparation in becoming a Certified Crop Adviser or Certified Professional Agronomist.
You have 30 days to complete this course after purchase.
