UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
Introduces students to the principles of regenerative agronomy. Students learn how to manage plants and animals in the context of regenerative agronomy. Ecologically based pest, weed and disease management is examined. Agronomic monitoring systems are explored.
- Regenerative agronomic principles
- Comparing conventional and regenerative approaches to agronomy
- Managing soil health and constraints in the context of regenerative agronomy
- Understanding the agronomic environment (landscape context)
- Managing plants and animals from a regenerative agronomy perspective
- Ecological management of pests, weeds and diseases
- Monitoring regenerative agronomic systems
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
