AFTP Course - Advanced Sugar Beet Production and Management

Organised by AFTP

This course has been designed for individuals who wish to improve their fundamental understanding of sugar beet production (e.g. growers, agronomists, breeders, consultants). It is recognised by BASIS as an Advanced Module (worth 30 CPD points) and can be applied towards the BASIS Diploma in Agronomy.

The course consists of three core two-day workshops; Foundations in Sugar Beet; Crop Protection; Varieties and Seed Technology, and Harvesting, Storage and Processing. There is also an optional two-day unit in Irrigation and Water Management (at an additional cost of £750) . Prior to the start of the course, delegates will have access to online learning materials. This will introduce the fundamental concepts of sugar beet growth and development and how this underpins yield formation.
