Agriculture Courses Online


Like many things, the discovery of agriculture came as a boon but, millennia on, has become exploited to such a degree that farming methods are now continually being re-evaluated. As the world’s population grows, so does the demand for more food, more energy, more products. Farming can be good for biodiversity – it depends, of course, on the farming practices in question. With the increasing demands of today’s society, modern agricultural methods often include the liberal use of pesticides, fertilizers and antibiotics, not to mention mass-breeding to produce more meat, eggs and milk.


Not surprisingly, these chemicals and methods damage the biodiversity both on and around the farm. There is an irony here: the less diversity there is, in terms of animal breeds and crops, the greater the risk of pests and diseases destroying the livestock and harvest. So there are some very good economic reasons for learning about modern farming methods. Agriculture is the world's biggest business and the demand for job opportunities is enormous. It is predicted there will be a need for 50,000 additional agricultural professionals in this industry over the next 5-10 years. Demand for professionals will exceed the supply.


Get an Agriculture Qualification: There are many agricultural career possibilities – in the field of agronomy alone, the list is long and demand for agronomists is going up. As well as an online course in agronomy, ADL offer many other distance-learning agricultural courses.


Get a career in Agriculture:  For those looking to work in alternative areas of agriculture (in positions such as a farm manager, technical representative, trainer or consultant) then ADL's Higher Advanced Diploma in Agriculture offers a very substantial training programme.


Learn about Agriculture: For farmers who would like to leave behind more conventional ways of farming (which rely heavily on chemical inputs such as artificial fertilisers and pesticides) then why not look into ADL's Organic Farming course or their Advanced Certificate in Alternative Farming – which covers more ethical and sustainable methods of agriculture and organic farming.
