Agribusiness Orchard Nutrition
Earners of the Agribusiness Orchard Nutrition badge have demonstrated a fundamental knowledge of mango nutrition for orchard management. They have developed a nutritional program for a mango orchard based on the plant's requirements. Earners understand macro and micro nutrients within a mango plant and their role at critical stages within the phenological cycle. They are able to examine fertiliser programs to interpret leaf and soil analysis data.Additional Details
