Student-Managed Farm (SMF) - Crops SMF
The team makes decisions about what to grow and where, fertilizer and herbicide applications as well as when to sell their crop.
Today's Student-Managed Farm – Powered by New Holland is especially relevant to the crops team as they are able to work with the latest equipment technology as they manage 2,100 acres of crop land.
The crops team actually has several teams within the team with units responsible for production, marketing, communications and finance. Weekly team meetings are part of the process as the whole team discusses strategies and actions.
One of their favourite times of the year is when harvest is complete -- it's a celebration.
As well, the team provides mid-term and end of the year reports on their activity throughout the year.
