Sound economic thinking is crucial for farmers because they depend on good economic decision making to survive. Governments depend on economic information to make good policy decisions on behalf of the community. This course will help you to contribute to better decision making by farmers, or by agencies servicing agriculture, and it will help you to understand why farmers respond to policies and economic opportunities in the ways they do.

TOP REVIEWS FROM AGRICULTURE, ECONOMICS AND NATURE
After completing studies in Agriculture 20+ years ago, I found this course to be a great refresher and really opened my eyes to the economics of resource management.
Interesting material, good presentation and explanations. Provided some incentive to undertake other similar MOOC's if they become available.
Great course, I learned a lot of new and interesting things. I wish I could go and continue my studies by going to UWA, maybe in the not-so-distant future :)
Clear and concise teaching, combined with helpful and accessible resources. A good basic guide to agriculture and agricultural related economics.
