Online Farming Basics Expanding with Second Course

Alabama Extension’s free, online Farming Basics Program is preparing to launch a second online course in 2023. New additions to the Farming Basics Online Course will provide more in-depth knowledge and explore new topic areas, including farm management and marketing, soil and soil fertility, pest management, vegetable and fruit production, beef and forage management, and agritourism. Upon course completion, the curriculum generates a customized certificate that provides four continuing education units (CEUs) from the American Agronomy Society and the American Society for Horticultural Science. New lessons in the Farming Basics Online Course will publish gradually during the course of 2023.
