BETA (Biodiversity and Environmental Training for Advisors)
February 21st, 22nd & 23rd
This course looks at the methods used to protect and enhance biodiversity, in the context of sustainable farming and best practice in the use of crop protection.
Originally designed by a partnership of organisations including FWAG, LEAF and BASIS, BETA forms part of the Voluntary Initiative; a package of measures put together by the UK farming industry, as a practical alternative to a pesticide tax.
Key topics include:
- Integrated crop management
- Enhancing biodiversity
- Cross compliance
- Environmental schemes
- Crop protection management planning
- Implications of climate change
Successful candidates will be awarded HE credits that can be used towards completion of the Harper Adams Diploma in Agronomy. Although originally designed for advisers and agronomists, the course has become popular with farmers and farm managers.
