Apply Now For The Grain Academy Class Of 2019

Syngenta believes that the future of agriculture should be actively shaped rather than left to chance.

Therefore, in partnership with Grain SA and the University of the Free State’s Business School, we created a tailored leadership development programme (NQF Level 6). The Grain Academy gives young growers active, innovative and practical exposure that will enable them to be leaders in South African agriculture both at farm and national level.

The following topics are addressed:

  • The changing and interactive future of agriculture
  • The art of leading people through new challenges
  • How to make sense from information overload
  • How to value the benefits of diversity
  • Leading and facilitating change in an era of transformation
