Agriculture and Conservation Training


Agricon Academy is a newly established company that aims at making a big difference in the fields of Agriculture and Conservation in South Africa by providing the necessary training and skills to people of all backgrounds to enable them to be productive citizens of the country and uplift themselves along with it.

Conservation and Agriculture have long been two separate entities that should actually be integrated in a way to support each other.  Agricon Academy aims to achieve this through various training on all levels for all people that form part of a greater team on an Agricultural or Conservation focused farm.

In simple words we will train the farm worker to do the daily tasks correctly, train the foreman to manage the farm workers and know what to monitor, and train the manager to manage all aspects of management to enable the farm to achieve its full productive potential.
