Part of the MBA (Professional) Agricultural Innovation and available to Master of Applied Science students.
This unit examines agricultural production systems within the context of sustainable use of soil, land and other natural resources in a changing and/or variable climate. Assessment 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, and land suitability for agricultural and forestry uses. A group mapping project will form a major part of the assessment based on field work and land evaluation for specific uses. Economic analysis of land use change scenarios will also be included.
