About this program

Increasing the sustainable production of plant food and fibre products over the next 50 years is one of the great global challenges facing the planet. The plant production system encompasses the basic genetic and physiological regulations on plant growth, the impact on growth of soil, water, nutrients, disease and pests and the influence of management processes. Achieving increased sustainable plant productivity will be dependent on implementing innovations across all aspects of the production system while more efficiently using resources and reducing negative impacts on the environment. This program provides training in plant biology, soil science, plant protection, sustainable crop management, automation and precision agriculture that will enable you to contribute to this globally important transformation.

A program in Plant Production allows you develop an additional level of expertise in field by building upon the embedded major with additional units of study.
