This honour gives an introduction to farming.

There are important things to learn.  For example – different soils and what grows well in them; how plants obtain and use nutrients; what plants and insects are pests and how to control them.  Then there’s agricultural machinery – what the different types do.  You’ll know how to read and use weather maps.

Then there’s the best parts – the hands-on parts.   You’ll have fun and satisfaction when checking out the germination rates of different seeds and being involved in growing crops from planting right through to harvesting.
