Description Agribusiness at Christ's College is a subject which combines Achievement Standards from two different subject areas – agribusiness and agricultural/horticultural science. Students are able to select Achievement Standards depending on their area of interest, and can concentrate on 'agribusiness' standards such as cash-flow forecasting and business structures, or 'on-farm' standards such as livestock reproduction or land use.

Students also learn about the environment, climate change, and sustainability.

Topics may include:

• Future-proofing your business • Cash-flow forecasting • Business structures • External and internal business factors • Land use/sustainability/environmental factors
