624 個評分


The Discover Best Practice Farming for a Sustainable 2050 Course is based on a clear vision: imagine best practice farming for 2050, start to implement these strategies now, all the while making sure it will still be profitable. At UWA we're doing just that with the Future Farm 2050 Project, set on a mixed-enterprise farm in Western Australia and we want you to learn how it can be done in your part of the world. Although this course is based on agriculture, it's not only about farming. It is a multi-disciplinary course that addresses a wide range of issues confronting the industry, including rural communities, rural infrastructure and conservation of biodiversity in agriculture. By completing this course you will understand that feeding and clothing the planet requires a multi-disciplinary approach and upon completion you will be able to explain best practices of sustainable farming and apply them in new contexts....




Friendly class for new college students. Easy to follow lectures and important materials makes the class great. I would love to see the farm in person, or make a small scale one on my own property.



It was a little hard for me, because it is in English.. especially for some quizzes.. But Its very useful course to take, with very helpful information and ideas.

Thanks for this opportunity ♡

It is not a sustainable system if it requieres herbicides that on the long run are going to kill the soil, and use products from big companies that the only thing they do is make the farmers dependant. And also... monocrops??? I think in the Agriculutral part, yoi guys should take a more organica approach and really empower the peoplle by giving solutions you can do and find in your own farm.

I felt a lot of the information was repetitive, and that overall we didn't go into great detail over any one subject. I understand the time of each course had to be convenient for students. However, having optional reading timed at 10 minutes was a time wasted that could be used for further instruction given to us and teaching time. Many of the reading sources were extremely lengthy, or were not accessible online.

I expected to come out of this course with a clear understanding of very specific steps that can be made to manage Best Practice Farming through out the entire world (e.g. specific water conservation solutions, specific soil preparation steps, specific seasonal planning, going into detail on subjects not just mentioning them). I guess I was expecting the course to be more scientifically based, not so much an over view of activities of the farm.

I do feel OF COURSE that I have gained new knowledge, and a better understanding of certain procedures. I do now have an overall understanding of better ways of running an operation. Seeing as I am a small scale operator, I already enact most of these steps in my daily activity.. so it was more of a refresher course for me than anything else.

I do truly appreciate having this information made available globally, and I thank all of the staff at UWA very very very much for their efforts in educating the outside communities.

Thank you for giving me a vision of what agriculture will (or should) look like in 2050. Content, presentation and curriculum are fantastic. Thank you!

A great course which will give you a great understanding of the aspect of future farming. Its a must for those who want to work in the field of agriculture especially in sustainable agriculture.

Sorry. I can't get past the first quiz. I have a doctorate and am a full professor at a university. I took this course for personal enrichment. However, the first quiz is impossible to navigate. I did my studying and no luck on the tricky multiple option test even having to revert to guessing eventually. This might make for a fair doctoral comp exam but not for the purpose of a MOOC. I am giving up. I hope this course is relaunched with better learner quizzes included that match this course format.

Highly educative and useful. Though now I wish there were modules that spell out details for each geographic region of the Future Farm project.

Over all, engaging and thorough yet concise with enough additional reading material, thereby respecting my time.

Loved the course. Was a great and sometimes challenging overview of sustainable practices in farming. I hope to someday visit the Future Farm in Western Australia! Thank you!

This is an excellent course. I highly recommend. I have improved my knowledge of agriculture and farming in this course. I have worked in my family agribusiness more than 20 years. We used shrubs to feed our cattle and sheep in winter times when we had dry summers. I am a senior agrifood consultant and I will use this valuable information in my agrifood consulting business ( . Thank you, Prof. Graeme Martin, his colleagues and University of Western Australia.

Thank you for all this knowledge that you just added to my brains. I still think a lot of people are not aware of how their habits ruin their own precious land worldwide. It is courses like " DISCOVER BEST PRACTICE FARMING FOR A 2050 " that remind us of our global responsibilities. I did like having women and men teaching us in this course, It seems knowledge sharing needs to have both sexes in it. Well done to all the People here !



It's really good. I really enjoy the course. The reading materials and other stuff was really helpful not only pass the assessment but also for the life. I, as an Agricultural undergraduate in one of the leading Universities In Sri Lanka (University of Peradeniya) would like to recommend this course as a beneficial one.

As someone with no experience in agriculture nor sustainable practices, it was very interesting and educational to learn about all of the aspects such as water, soil, crops, livestock, community, and architecture.

The lectures could have been more descriptive in the sense of technicalities and depth.

Just a brief Snapshot of 'Discover best practice farming for a sustainable 2050' . Dr Graeme Martin Prof. UWA who introduces best farming practices for a sustainable 2050 covering the ecological cropping, CGE livestock, restoration of ecosystem and biodiversity and the last one about we the people covering two important aspects of self reliant i.e., farm water by harvesting and electricity via solar energy. Snapshot of Ridgefield farm by Mr Steven Wainewright was quite interesting and learning experience. Infrastructure by Prof. Patrick, Eco social Work by Dr Susan, Praiseworthy work of Dr Anne Smith for Greening Australia, Ruminant production by Dr P Vercoe, my favourite Plant breeding by Dr Wallace Cowling, Learning experience from Shauna who manages 1300 Ha of her farm profitably and sustainably, Dr Ken Flower knowledge & expertise on No-Till farming sustem and there are many other who actually delivered their lectures very effectively and efficiently and I am happy to share that this course is worth doing and a great platform for learning from progressive farmers and experts from University of Western Australia. I am also thankful to Cousera for giving this great platform.. thanks

I have studied in agriculture field. And I'm aware about the importance of sustainable agriculture, the dire need of food and food safety. It has been seen that the population is increasing rapidly so that we will require more food to feed humans. This course provided me a fundamental understanding of sustainability. And how can we mitigate some obstacles by taking remedial solutions. Apparently, this course is pertinent for those who belong to agriculture sector and willing to assist farmers. I learned a substantial topics which are indispensable to work on sustainable development.

The videos/lectures are great. I enjoyed every minute of this course, except quizzes. It is so obvious that the quizzes/tests were not done attentively. Some questions are too simple (making them useless), some appeal to relatively insignificant facts, some are controversial. When done well, a test can help learners to understand the materials better/deeper. Instead, this course's quizzes bring frustration because of their quality. If quizzes are improved, I would definitely consider this course one of the best I ever participated in.

This course gave me a new perspective on the multi-disciplinary issues that need to be considered in designing future farms that are profitable, productive, environmentally friendly, and conserve biodiversity. The model farm in this project is for large scale farms in Western Australia. However, the challenge is how to develop a Future Farm Model for small scale farmers (2 hectares or less) in Africa that contribute up to 90% of agricultural production according to FAO reports.

This course was not only informative but also really enjoyable to move through. The practices, philosophies, methodologies and tools seem to be applicable anywhere, not just rural Western Australia. I also really enjoyed the references and reading material which I will be revisiting again and again. Thank you for putting together such a wonderful and inspiring course. I plan to take the information I've learned and apply it to my future research.

A great course which will give you a great understanding of the aspect of future farming. Its a must for those who want to work in the field of agriculture especially in sustainable agriculture. A great insight into building sustainable farms. Some of the materials need to be updated though. Also no one seems to be monitoring the forums. Other than that, the course itself is quite useful.
