All BASIS courses are specially designed for individuals working in agriculture, who want to develop their knowledge to stay up to date with the latest technical innovations, best practice guidelines and regulations.

“As well as the popular BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection, a range of courses are available and will be showcased at the event, including the Certificate in Soil and Water Management,” says Stephen.

“This course will assist farmers and advisers in managing these vital resources in a sustainable way. It will help candidates to protect the environment while striving for the best yield, which could be key to receiving payments as part of the new Agriculture Bill,” he says.
