    Year 9 Agriculture 2014

    Yr 9 Agriculture

    At TAS , it is expected that most students will study 200 hours of Agricultural Technology at stage 5 level.

    TAS runs on a two-week cycle with 45 minute periods. Below is listed the approximate timings of each enterprise chosen across the 200 hr course. Each enterprises is elected to fit into approximate term structures based on:

    • the time of the year when the majority of management operations are performed for each enterprise
    • seasonal nature of the enterprises
    • cattle show and competitions calendar
    • holiday periods.

    Each may not be sequential in timing.
