Com­menc­ing July in Alexan­dra, the Agribusi­ness Train­ing Plant Prop­a­ga­tion course cov­ers a wide range of top­ics and tech­niques, in­clud­ing prop­a­ga­tion from seeds, cut­tings, di­vi­sion and the art of bud­ding and graft­ing. Each stu­dent will re­ceive their own fully func­tional prop­a­ga­tion unit for use at home. The course runs over a twelve month pe­riod so that all sea­sons and ac­tiv­i­ties can be un­der­taken at the nor­mal time of year.
