Overview

Make more informed agricultural decisions as a farmer or policymaker

Economic thinking is vital in agriculture, as a farmer’s livelihood depends on the outcomes of their decisions. Governments also require economic information to make policy decisions on behalf of communities.

On this course, you’ll explore key economic principles that will help you to make sense of the changes that have occurred in agriculture and understand why different agricultural economic decisions have been made.

You’ll cover subjects like agricultural production methods, input levels, resource conservation, and sustainable agricultural production, as you consider how improved economic thinking can positively impact these areas.

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in economic thinking for the agricultural sector.

It will be of particular interest to farmers, policymakers, and those who reside in rural communities with strong agriculture industries.
