Delivering global food security is one of the critical challenges of the 21st century. Each nation needs to balance local food production with imports and consider environmental and economic impact. This Masters considers the critical factors influencing global food security including the contribution of climate change, biodiversity, water, soil, land use, labour, diet and urbanisation.
Crop agriculture provides mankind’s increasing population with foods, fibers and fuel. This course provides knowledge and practical skills focused on crop management and improvement. Students will gain a combination of practical expertise and academic understanding to develop key skills. You will learn the principles of crop production, and about the latest advances in plant pathology, integrated pest management and soil health.
Escalating rates of environmental and climate change are forcing us to re-evaluate our management of agricultural and natural habitats. The competing demands on agricultural land for food production and for bio energy provision must be reconciled with environmental stewardship and mitigation of climate change. This Masters provides a timely and integrated perspective on environmental bioscience, management, societal matters and regulation as these relate to issues such as sustainable production of food, energy and provision of ecosystem services.
