There is increasing demand to find diverse means of using rural resources to ensure the continued viability of the rural economy. There is therefore need to further develop the skills in farm management and develop new business opportunities, be that farm diversification, value added enterprises, on-farm but non-farm activities or other rural developments to ensure that the future of the rural economy will be secured.

The course will focus on effective use of agricultural resources and the opportunities this presents to the rural economy.

By combining this with a sound understanding of business development and policy it will enable participants to maximise on opportunities identified.
