This course has been designed to equip students with the underpinning knowledge of science and technology associated with the crop production industry. The production of crops is currently facing many new challenges, including climate change, evolving legislation and the ability to produce food sustainably; however there is also a constant demand for skilled professionals in a wide variety of positions within the industry, ranging from crop breeders, agronomists and growers. Successful crop production therefore requires individuals who can innovate and use up-to-date knowledge to advance the industry and ensure that it keeps pace with change. Furthermore, the responsibility of producing food sustainably falls firmly on agriculturalists that are able to use novel techniques and be receptive to new ideas.
