About the Advanced Agronomy Course

This course is written by Planfarm’s leading Agronomists and not only covers the in-depth principles of crop and pasture agronomy, but also proven, best practice farming methods that will create the difference between Advanced Agronomy course graduates (you), and the rest. Success in farming is all about knowledge and know-how and with this course, you will never look at crops, pastures, or the business of farming in the same way again.

Is this course right for me?

If you’re in the business of crop and pasture farming, or indeed a professional servicing this industry, the Advanced Agronomy Course is an absolute must-have for both your resume and personal development. We also highly recommend that family members consider participating as a group or individual as there is never a time like now to fully understand your family’s farming system.

How is the course run?

The course is run over an eight-week period and features 29 video modules of around 10–25 minutes each. Conveniently, and with remote farmers in mind, you will do most of your learning at your computer or tablet in the comfort of your own home or home office. There are also private discussion platforms that run during the course so that you are never learning on your own.

Course Curriculum

The Advanced Agronomy Course curriculum has been developed by our Planfarm agronomists, using their wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure that the most important aspects of agronomy are covered.

Participant Testimonial

The course has helped me, I think, because I’ve been more focussed on crop protection and crop production, and because the course is quite broad in its scope – obviously agronomy is a huge topic – but there have been a few good modules on pasture production and animal health that have been relevant for me and have helped me broaden my experience and knowledge base.
