SOIL MANAGEMENT (AGRICULTURE)
Learn about soil properties and their requirements in agriculture, and how to apply that knowledge at a management level. This is a general soil management course involving: introduction to soils, nutrition, soil physics, chemistry, testing, problems, land degradation, soil management in farms and crops.
Soil Management is aimed at those wanting to learn about soils and how to improve the quality of soils. Soil is the foundation for profitable farming. There are many things that can be wrong with soil (eg. poor nutrition, chemical imbalance, structural problems such as drainage, lack of microbial life etc). Often minor and relatively inexpensive treatments can make a huge difference to productivity, but the problems need to be identified first, and that requires a solid understanding of soil theory and management practice.
