This unit examines agricultural production systems within the context of climate, landscapes and natural resources. Management of soil, land, water and vegetation resources on a catchment and property basis will be covered. Students will develop competency in the assessment of land resources including soil survey, land capability, biodiversity and suitability for agriculture and forestry. A group mapping project will form a major part of the assessment.
