Crop Production

About this Course

Generally, plants are important to man. In the olden days, man depended on wild plants for food. Selections for choice plants were initially based on trial and error. Through this method, man was able to differentiate the edible from the non-edible plant materials. Eventually, he began to domesticate some crops within the immediate surroundings. Some plant remains that were deliberately planted also germinated.
From this, man developed the idea of cultivation and production of crops
However, man, especially in the developing countries, still wanders around his environment for food.



Crop production today requires a level of sophistication beyond what we ever saw before. It offers opportunities beyond comprehension, but to optimise a business or career in producing crops you need to have knowledge, awareness and drive to succeed not only in growing plants, but also in business management practices, science and technology.

Successful technologists and growers in this industry don't achieve success through qualifications alone, but they have a level of knowledge and awareness about growing commercial crops that would often leave the university graduates reeling.

This course aims to set you on the path to this sort of success with growing crops.
