Diploma in Applied Farm Management

Farm business management has assumed greater importance not only in developed and commercial agriculture all round the world but also in developing and subsistence type of agriculture.

Course Overview

A farm manager must not only understand different methods of agricultural production, but also, he must be concerned with their costs and returns. He must know how to allocate scarce productive resources on the farm business to meet his goals and at the same time react to economic forces that arise from both within and outside the farm. Farm management is concerned with resource allocation. On one hand, a farmer has a set of farm resources such as land, labour, farm buildings, working capital, farm equipment, etc. that are relatively scarce. On the other hand, the farmer has a set of goals or objectives to achieve may be maximum family satisfaction through increasing net farm income and employment generation. In between these two ends, the farmer himself is with a specific degree of ability and awareness. This gap is bridged by taking a series of rational decisions in respect of farm resources having alternative uses and opportunities. The study of applied farm management would be useful to impart knowledge and skill for optimizing the resource use and maximizing the profit.
