Unit 6: Farm Resources

Unit 6: Farm Resources

Farmers occupy and manage 61% of Australia's landmass and are at the frontline in delivering environmental outcomes on behalf of the broader community. Lots of research goes into making sure Australian agricultural products have maximum taste and quality with minimum impact on the environment.

Unit Six supports students to investigate natural and man-made farm resources such as water, machinery, people, technology and infrastructure. The focus of this unit is on farmers' stewardship of the land, and the relationship between resources and how they change over time. Students establish an understanding of how important it is for farmers to produce enough food and fibre for everyone, and how these products are consistently produced to a high standard.
