DescriptionIn your first year, you get to complete the requirements of either the Horticulture Crop Production and Protection certificate or the Livestock Production certificate before going on to year two. All courses from these certificates apply to the diploma program.

In your second year, you develop additional expertise in your chosen area of practice, learn about sustainable holistic agricultural practices, and explore issues relating to on-farm food safety, quality, and security. You also develop your writing, business, and marketing skills both by completing coursework and a hands-on enterprise project where you get to develop a business plan for an agricultural venture.
