UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
Have a good working knowledge of chemistry.
Develops the knowledge and skills required for effective regenerative soil management. Students will assess soil structure, soil health and emergent properties of soil. The key concepts of soil management are examined. Students will learn to develop regenerative strategies for effective agricultural soil management, including carbon sequestation.
- Principles of regenerative soil management
- Soil ecology and microbiology
- Soil carbon and sequestation
- Land capability, soil types and structure
- Soil property mapping
- Soil health: biological, physical and chemical properties
- Assessing soil health properties
- Identifying and managing soil constraints
- Managing soil fertility
- Regenerative soil management: strategies and practices
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.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:||GA1||GA2||GA3||GA4||GA5||GA6||GA7|
|1||identify the key principles of regenerative soil management|
|2||map soils at landscape and paddock scales|
|3||assess soil health and fertility and identify soil constraints|
|4||apply a range of regenerative soil management strategies and practices.|
