BASIS Short Courses
Through LIAT, the University of Lincoln is committed to developing the higher-level skills that the agricultural and food manufacturing industries' need in the 21st century. We provide essential professional development to working farmers and agronomists through our accredited BASIS courses run at the University of Lincoln’s Riseholme Campus. The 200 hectare estate features woodlands, grasslands, watercourses, as well as a working farm and agricultural field station. It offers an ideal setting for supporting the training courses as well as testing farm innovations, crop trials, and experimentation.
BASIS Certificate in Soil and Water Management
This course, leading to the BASIS Certificate in Soil and Water Management, examines how farmers can manage soil and water in a sustainable way. Particular emphasis is placed on understanding the methods used to avoid soil erosion and water pollution, and the implications of Cross Compliance, Greening Rules, and the Water Framework Directive.
BASIS Quality of Soils
This course aims to give farmers, growers, and advisors further insight into how to make farming and production systems more resilient through an increased understanding of how soil functions as an ecosystem. The course takes a particular focus on soil life; the thriving soil food web which is vital for successful and sustainable farming on our soils.
BASIS Certificate in Sustainable Land Management
This course has been designed for professionals involved in providing environmental advice to farms and the farmed environment, along with farmers and land managers across the UK. Successful completion provides the required qualification to entry for joining the BASIS Environmental Advisers Register. The course also forms one of the required qualifications for achieving the BASIS Diploma in Agronomy.
A number of BASIS and FACTS courses formerly delivered at the University of Lincoln are now delivered independently by Agronomy Training Ltd. These are delivered by BASIS Approved Trainers Simon Goodger and Chris Tolley.
