Farm management is the decision-making that is involved in organising and operating a farm for maximum production and profit. This management can be on any scale, from a farm which provides its products to outlets internationally or nationwide, or a local hobby farm which has been started on a small allotment.

Agricultural economics are crucial to farm management as it draws on prices, markets, and policies for information on how to best manage the output for maximum gain.

This Farm Management and Machinery Care Diploma course is suitable for current farmers, or farm workers, who wish to increase the size of their farm. It is also suitable for people who are switching from an urban lifestyle to a farming way of life.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
