ABM300 is a course that provides an overview of the research process for Agricultural Business Management students. It is intended to guide students as the embark on the task of carrying a research project from proposal writing and presentation to presentation of the final research.
The course is designed to provide foundation Mathematics to all programs in the college which requires knowledge of mathematics beyond that of secondary school Mathematics.

Botany is the science of plants, it is the branch of biology that deals with plant life. It is useful in several fields of life sciences including agriculture, agriculture education, food science, fisheries, horticulture, nutrition and conservation.
Modern botany is a broad, multidisciplinary subject with inputs from most of other areas of science and technology. This course also gives practical considerations as well as theories to build upon.

The value of soil science and management in agriculture cannot be over-emphasised. Soil management is important, both directly and indirectly, to crop productivity, environmental sustainability, and human health. Today’s engineers, crop scientists, animal scientists etc. may not only have to be masters in their professional or technical knowledge and skills but also, must have an in-depth understanding of related disciplines to be suitable for the job market. Soil science is the scientific study of the formation, classification, mapping and the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil, including how these properties relate to the use and management of soils.

This applied soil science course will take students through the field of soil and water management, training students to understand the nature, importance and management of soil and water as they relate to crop production and environmental management. It is designed in a way that will build student knowledge and skills based on topics learned in the first-year course of “Fundamentals of Soil Science and Crop Production” which provided an overview of the fundamental concepts in crop and related soil science.

Welcome, therefore, to CS 231 – Applied Soil Science. I can assure you will enjoy studying this course. CS 231 – Applied Soil Science is a two-credit unit course meant to be taken in the first semester of Second Year.

The main aim of this practical manual is to supplement the students with knowledge and skills acquired in the theory soil science course.
As posted on WhatsApp group, the Module is the study material comprising four units namely:
1. The crop environment
2. Principals of crop production and management principals
3. Machine use in crop production
4. Production of some selected crops-Field, Vegetable and Fruit crops
Fundamentals of Dietetics ( FN221) has a theory and Practical component.
The practical component will to expose the students to the basic functions expected of a nutritionist in a clinical setting.
This course gives an insight of the classification of various fishing gear (more especially those used in Zambia), their design, mending and principles of operation. It also includes fundamentals of net making aimed at providing the student sound understanding of both practical and theoretical components. Generally, it is meant to provide a solid ground for future skills in fishing methods. It is divided into six (6) units to make it easy for you to follow the content.
By the end of the course, students should be able to:
i. Explain terms, facts, fundamental principles and concepts used in fishing technology.
ii. Identify and classify the various fishing gear and crafts used in fishing (both at global and national level).
iii. To determine the various netting materials, their characteristics and designation.
iv. To apply appropriate net making and mending skills.
v. Describe the basic fish locating devices and their principles of operation.
vi. Acquire and apply the necessary seamanship skills.
Course overview
Welcome to Introduction to Aquaculture and Fisheries of Zambia
Zambia, a country found in the central southern part of Africa, has sources of two major river systems in Africa namely Zambezi and Congo River systems. The country is also endowed with several lakes, swamps and floods plains. In this course, we shall discuss the various Zambia’s fisheries and their biological, physical and chemical environments and their interactions. We shall further look at the several activities that dominate these fisheries.

Introduction to Aquaculture and Fisheries in Zambia-is this course for you?
This course is intended for people whose aim is to attain knowledge about the Zambian Fisheries and their biological, physical and chemical conditions. It is aimed at giving Fisheries Science students a clear understanding of the Zambian fisheries industry.
In order to fully appreciate this course, you need to have had successfully completed Grade 12 with at least credits in five ‘O’ Level Subjects. A good understanding of biology/agricultural science, physics and chemistry would be of so much help in understanding this course.
