Cradle Coast, Launceston, Hobart
In this unit you will learn the principles of crop production, which include management of growth media, plant water requirements, and cultivar choice. You will explore plant establishment, growth characteristics, crop nutrition, cultural management, and methods of crop monitoring to achieve optimal crop growth and final yield. You will also investigate different management approaches and how they impact upon crop health and productivity.
This unit also builds on concepts of learning through practice from Year 1 by introducing you to more complex learning experiences including:
- discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
- concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
- the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
- the nature of responsible, accountable and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice.
You will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual
