Agricultural Business Management Program
Whether you are a 3rd generation farmer, or a first year landscaper, this program is sure to improve your horticulture knowledge and business management skills.
"The ABM program provides basic business theory along with concrete guides,
many pointers, plus hands-on demonstrations. On-site visits cover current needs
and offer timely 'show and tell' in the field. Valuable feedback is given on business
practices, employee policies, macro-level record keeping, and balance sheets."
