    BASIS Foundation in Agronomy (Agriculture) - Online Delivery

    The course is a sound introduction to the agronomy, integrated crop protection and crop nutrition of the main UK combinable and root crops. For some delegates with limited crop experience and knowledge it serves as a preliminary course for the BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection Course. For others such as farm 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.
