Developed by QCONZ in collaboration with the New Zealand Fertiliser Council and Federated Farmers.

This course assists farmers when spreading their own fertiliser.

The course teaches and verifies a number of important areas:

- Key methods to help minimise the environmental impacts when spreading fertiliser
- Fertiliser application and how you can maximise farm productivity
- Health & Safety requirements to ensure everyone is kept safe

The Farmer Fertiliser Spreading Traing Course is divided into several ‘modules’. A module is like a ‘subset’ or ‘chapter’ of the course. Each module is completed via the the internet with QCONZ Virtual Coach eLearning platorm. It is very easy – as simple as clicking the link to get started!
