AFTP Course - Soil Management
Organised by AFTP
This course is designed to teach the fundamentals of soil management to professionals interested in the sustainable and efficient management of land resources. Sustainable soil management is reviewed in relation to increasing food production efficiency whilst limiting environmental impacts and a decline in soil quality and services.
This course will provide a basic guide to the field and laboratory assessment of soil quality in a UK context with support from lectures and structured learning with extensive on-line resources. It is particularly suited to those working in the agriculture and food production industries, as well as others concerned with the fundamental resources and processes underpinning agricultural production and its environmental impacts.
