This class enables students to tackle a joint application of Agribusiness and agricultural science. Students uses chemistry and physics to develop a better understanding of production systems and to apply qualitative techniques to management plans. The path will have a solid focus on broadacre systems in mediterranean and low-rainfall environments of southern Australia, and these will likely probably be discussed in the context of worldwide issues such as food security, shifting markets, sustainability and climate change. Graduates of the class have a mix of a robust scientific and critical thinking approach and employment-ready knowledge. This understanding of agricultural production systems is combined with business skills associated with production, processing, promotion and supply of food. Students who undertake this class will benefit from gaining a qualification that delivers an extensive comprehension of a key manufacturing system, in combination with a critical emphasis on the business atmosphere. The near future for the agriculture business is very attractive and also the skills gained in this class are in high demand across agricultural food chain businesses. Highly educated, creative men and women are essential to come up with new approaches and technologies to produce food sustainably throughout emerging and developed markets.
