College of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (CAFF)
Fiji College of Agriculture (FCA) was established in 1954 and offers Diploma in Tropical Agriculture to Fiji and regional students.However, in 2010, FCA undergoes changes and it became the College of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (CAFF) under the Fiji National University (FNU).
The Diploma in Tropical Agriculture
Programme is a three year course. The programme is based on the
application of scientific and economic principles and on sound
husbandry techniques to meet the requirements of a developing Fiji
agricultural industry. The Department of Agriculture has a wider
objective than simply preparing graduates to find employment in the
formal agriculture sector.
The course is divided into six
semesters of approximately 15 weeks each. The Diploma in Tropical
Agriculture Programme is a residential course and therefore allows the
students opportunities to become fully conversant with the seasonal
activities of the college livestock and crop units.
The aim of the programme is to produce
graduates who have knowledge and practical skills in agricultural
production, management, marketing and extension. The programme seeks to
give students sound knowledge of sustainable farming systems in Fiji
ranging from subsistence smallholders to large scale farms.
The department is mainly
responsible for meeting the human resource needs of the country in
areas of agriculture. It places great emphasis on research conducted in
agriculture and there are excellent opportunities provided to staff for
