BASIS Waste to Land
The BASIS Certificate in Plant Nutrition - Waste to Land, is aimed at advisers who are involved in recycling of organic materials to agricultural land (e.g. producers of compost and anaerobic digestate).
Food wastes, effluent treatment sludge and other liquids are recycled to agricultural land which provides agricultural benefit through the addition of treatments. This module will examine the different types of non-livestock organic manures and wastes, their nutrient value and their practical application to land. As with all materials applied in an agricultural or horticultural setting, candidates will be expected to have an awareness of environmental issues and quality standards and protocols.
- Non-Livestock Organic Manures and Wastes as Nutrient Sources
- Application of Organic Manures and Wastes
- Environmental Issues Associated with Organic Manures and Wastes
- Quality Standards and Protocols
- Relevant Codes and Regulations
Candidates must be FACTS Qualified
It is strongly recommended that candidates should have had at least two years experience of on-farm practical agronomy before attempting any of the modules which contribute towards the BASIS Diploma in Agronomy, but in particular before taking the Plant Protection Award.
