Course Overview

In recognition of the fact that about 90% of Kenya‘s population is engaged in small-scale farming, from where they derive their livelihood, students in the Diploma in Farm Resource Management programme are prepared to handle the challenges of agricultural development as they join the agricultural extension advisory service or serve in private sector agricultural entities. The farm management curriculum acknowledges the importance and value of involvement in practical operations and activities in farming. Hence, practical farming facilities are availed in the University in a specialized tuition farm, The Tatton Demonstration Unit (TDU), now renamed the Taton Agriculture Park (TAP). TAP is the field laboratory for students of this programme.
