Overview

Organic Vegetable Crops Management is a professional degree aimed to train a qualified technical figure able to advice and/or support in the agronomic management of production and bureaucratic requirements coming from organic farmers. Organic vegetable crops insist generally in small and medium-sized farms whose entrepreneurs, in order to remain competitive, must be able to apply innovations in agronomic techniques and product valorization as well as to respond to changes in the regulatory requirements governing the organic sector.
These objectives are achieved throughout a three-year educational path (180 total credits). In the first two years the basic disciplines are strongly oriented to support knowledge of integrated cultivation techniques of vegetable crops (e.g. sustainable uses of non-renewable inputs and integrated pest management) together juridical-economic disciplines (circular economy, marketing and certification of organic production). The third year is devoted, coherently with the ministerial objectives, to training activity at companies /bodies operating in the organic sector. The agreement signed with the Agronomists and Forest Doctors’ Order of Veneto will guarantee the placement of trainees in companies, professional agronomist consulting service, cooperatives, etc. where, on the basis of a specific training program, the acquired knowledge will be deepened and consolidated. The acquired knowledge will allow these graduates to perform operational tasks and to respond to organic farmers issues in a particularly dynamic and innovative production context.
