The course is a sound introduction to the agronomy, integrated crop protection and crop nutrition of grassland and forage crops. For some delegates with limited crop experience and knowledge it serves as a preliminary course for the BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection (Grassland and Forage Crops) Course. For others such as some farm and retail staff, who have a role which will not involve giving agronomy and crop protection advice, it is a stand-alone course providing them with a level of understanding and knowledge appropriate for their work.
