Topics include but are not limited to ventilation and manure management, rural development policies, and local land use planning. Soil and water management for pasture and crop production and environmental protection will also be included, as will development of nutrient management plans. These topics will be tied to the NAAEE standards and guidelines as well as to KCAS. (Recommended especially for elementary school teachers and for middle school teachers who teach in schools in which science is not offered every year.) Farm Management Plan: In the final assignment for the course connections with the KCAS will be made. Candidates will describe how each topic in the plan might be addressed at the following levels: elementary, middle school and secondary.
