Knowledge is power, and in any business enterprise, education confers the power to be profitable. There is now a whole new technology available, which can ensure both increased profitability and improved sustainability in agriculture. Balance – both mineral and biological – is the keystone of this approach, but there are numerous management tips, tricks and synergies that complete the equation. The bottom line is that this holistic, precision approach simply outperforms the conventional approach.


This four-day certificate course includes comprehensive presentations, hands-on exercises and your own set of take-home guidebooks. It also includes a human health workshop which is both entertaining and informative with each participant receiving a comprehensive "report card" on his or her own personal health.


The course teaches:

  • Reducing chemical dependence & increasing fertilizer efficiency
  • Accessing soil nutrient reserves
  • Improving water management and soil structure
  • Boosting both your health and the health of your livestock
  • Acquiring simple strategies to combine with existing practices


Tuition for the full 4-day course is $860 + HST and includes daily continental breakfast, lunch, and one evening dinner as well as all course materials and Certificate testing. The class will run from 8am until 5:00pm each day.
