FINANCING AND INVESTMENTS

 Duration 1 week. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.

 The importance of understanding finance fundamentals in the agriculture world is huge.

 Our Financing and Investment course gives you basic knowledge about financing opportunities in the bank and mortgage credit on individual investments in the agricultural holding and different loan types.

 Do you have questions? Contact our Study Supervisor Annette Esbjerg Jensen Tlf.: 20 37 30 05 Mail: aeje@videndjurs.dk

 Our course is focused on a practical application of profitability calculation on individual investments, applying the prerequisites for these, and calculating of performance profiles of different loan types.

Do you also think that finance and investments is something that involves experts and complicated equations and ideas that are beyond the grasp of someone who is not an expert? That finance is a bit of a mystery understood by only such people? You should not let a lack of knowledge hold you back from finding out how does financing and investments works! - Natalia, teacher


POULTRY

 Do you have questions?

 Duration 1 week. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.

Contact our Study Supervisor Annette Esbjerg Jensen Tlf.: 20 37 30 05 Mail: aeje@videndjurs.dk

 The student will get knowledge of physiology, feedstuff, management and housing. We will look into rules and registration in small and big poultry productions. The course will include farm visits.

#makeadifference 5


�Knowing about feeding, housing and care is very important if you want to work with poultry in small ore large scale. In this course you will get an broard and practical introduction to egg and meat production.� - Birgitte, teacher


COMPOST

 Do you have questions?

 Duration 1 week. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.

Contact our Study Supervisor Annette Esbjerg Jensen Tlf.: 20 37 30 05 Mail: aeje@videndjurs.dk

 The subject compost focuses on different types of compost and methods. How to use compost in agriculture. We work practical with building facilities, handling and how to brew your own compost tea.

#makeadifference 7


”Compost has been a buzz word in organic farming for ages – but what is it actually about? And how can you implement it farm-scale?This, and a lot more, you will learn at the compost course.” - Martin, teacher


TECHNIQUE 1

 Duration1 week. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.

 Learn how GPS can be a great help in modern agriculture and how machine costs affect your financial result, but there will also be time to practice in the workshop.

 Learn about advanced agricultural machinery and updated tractor technology at a high level, field capacity for various machines, diesel consumption and labor consumption.

#makeadifference 9


�Technique 1 is a course where you will put to work both your hands and your brain.The aim of the course is to give the students a more sound and thorough idea of how to make better use of the resources at hand in the farm, calculate your productive capacity, so to learn to make better and more grounded decisions. At the same time, you will get the possibility to apply some of it, while working in the workshop on maintenance and repairing machines as a part of the daily routines at the farm.� - Guillermo, teacher


PHOTOSYNTHESIS & RESPIRATION

 Finally, the students will understand how these different photosynthetic strategies can be introduced into a given production system in order to increase system resilience and the utilization of photosynthetic active radiation (PAR).

 Duration 2,5 days. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.  This course will give a thorough understanding of the three different plant photosynthetic strategies and their respiration: C3 C4 and CAM.

 Further, we will consider climatic changes and the adaptation of each photosynthetic strategy to cope with higher temperatures.

 We will unravel their evolutionary development and geographical distribution.

#makeadifference 11


�Plant photosynthesis has been called the most important biological process on earth – Knowing what factors influence plants ability to photosynthesize, I believe is a crucial part of being a farmer, especially as productions systems are facing circumstances that require a higher degree of resilience. Drought, nutrient deficiencies, shade avoidance and temperatures are all things that we will discuss in relation to plant photosynthesis. � - Janne, Teacher


BOTANY

 Duration 2,5 days. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.

 The student will get knowledge, skills and competencies in recognizing various plant families and identifying plant species using a key.

 It is very important for the farmer to be able to identify weeds and herbs on pasture and crops. You will train and increase your knowledge of botanic on relevant plants.

#makeadifference 13


�This is a practical intensive course where you will learn how to determine plant species – it is super relevant for daily work in the field, when one is curious on the plant community in a given field. It couples to the method of using plants as bioindicators for soil assessment and overall weed control.� - Janne, teacher


PLANT BREEDING

 Duration 2,5 days. Evaluation and grade is given upon completion as passed/not passed.

 Subjects are, amongst several; loss of diversity, genetically modification and the use of own collected seeds.

 The course will work theoretically with current problematics in genetics, which relates to technology, environment, nature in the agricultural sector and in society.

#makeadifference 17


�Bees are important pollinators for many crops and deliver valuable products in multifunctional farms. Come and learn the basis of beekeeping and honey bee biology in the course. We have also a large focus on giving good conditions for pollinators in general: how can you plan a crop rotation which gives valuable nectar and pollen for both wild pollinators and bees for the whole season? � - Florence, teacher
