Students from the Associate Degree in Agribusiness undertake first workshop

The University of Tasmania’s University College has held its first of many student workshops for the Associate Degree in Agribusiness.

The workshop, held on March 17 and 18, took place on the North West region of Tasmania and included visits to Premium Fresh, Serve-Ag, Agvita, DobMac, Botanical Resources Australia, Brandsema Tomatoes and Sassafras Farms.

During the workshop students heard from a range of key industry stakeholders about the challenges and opportunities of operating in such a dynamic environment. Students were able to discuss issues relevant to their subject focus with the business managers and obtain first-hand, industry-grounded information.

Up to 28 students attended the workshop across two days, with the costs associated with attending covered by the Blundstone Scholarship for Agribusiness.

The next workshop will be held during term 2.
